Hip-Hop Lovers Rejoice: Kanye, Jay-Z To Play Detroit

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Not one, but two of the biggest acts in music today are swinging through Motown on highly anticipated new tours.

Kanye West announced Friday he’ll appear for his “Yeezus” tour Nov. 10, 2013, at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

And Jay Z announced Friday the dates for the North American leg of his “Magna Carter World Tour” include a Jan. 10, 2014 stop at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

There’s no question, they’re a couple of Detroit music fan favorites.

Jay Z recently released the now double platinum “Magna Carta… Holy Grail,” just wrapped the sold out “Legends Of The Summer” stadium tour with Justin Timberlake and over Labor Day, oversaw his second annual Budweiser Made In America festival; both to rave reviews.

“Nearly two decades into his unparalleled rap career, Jay Z hasn’t abandoned his lofty ambitions,” the LA Times wrote about the Made In America festival.

Produced by Live Nation, Jay Z’s tour will go on sale Thursday, September 12 starting at 10 a.m. (EST) through Ticketmaster.

Beginning today, Friday, September 6, 2013, Jay-Z fans can click here to RSVP for early access to presale tickets available on Wednesday, September 11. Citi® cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Monday, September 9 at 10 a.m. local time through Citi’s Private Pass® Program.

For Kanye, organizers say his show “combines state-of-the-art staging, production, and lighting design with his unmatched aesthetic, visionary creative mind, and an increasingly impressive catalogue of hits spanning his decade-long career.”

To date, Kanye West has sold over 21 million albums and over 66 million digital tracks worldwide.

The Yeezus Tour is West’s first major itinerary since his Watch The Throne tour with JAY Z in 2011 – the highest grossing tour in hip-hop history – and his first solo tour since 2008’s critically acclaimed Glow In The Dark tour.

Recently, the Washington Post hailed West as “a visionary who’s managed to tweak the serial rhythms that dictate so much of our pop culture diet. He doesn’t do cliffhangers. He jumps off…We gasp, gawk and wonder, ‘Where will he land?”

Kanye tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 13. Get tickets HERE.
