Jay-Z to Play New Zealand For The First Time

Tuesday 24 August 2010

Jay-Z will join U2 as the very special guest for dates in New Zealand and Australia. The U2 360° Tour will visit Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.

With hits such as 99 Problems, Empire State of Mind and Dirt Off Your Shoulder, and ten Grammy awards, JAY-Z is one of the most successful artists of all time. His last record Blueprint 3 was one of the biggest selling records of 2010, and was JAY-Z’s 11th Number 1 album - putting him ahead of Elvis for most Number 1 albums by any solo artist. Jay-Z last played Australia in 2006 and he has never played in New Zealand.
