Two of the biggest names in rap/hip hop are touring together this fall and have an upcoming stop in Montreal. Jay-Z and Kanye West released an album together and now are touring together. The tour began in October in Atlanta and was originally scheduled for 23 dates, but due to demand and sell outs it has expanded to 26 dates.
Kanye West has not toured in four years, so his fans are primed and ready to go. Jay-Z fans have seen more of their guy lately with his opening slot on U2’s 360˚ tour and another collaboration effort which saw him teaming up with Eminem on The Home & Home tour.
The two begin the show performing a couple of numbers off the Watch the Throne album. Then Kanye leaves the stage allowing Jay-Z to perform a couple of his solo hits like “Empire State of Mind”. Kanye then takes the stage solo performing songs like “Golddigger”. The show is then concluded with another run of duet raps from the two masters.
The reviews of the shows by critics and fans so far has been overwhelmingly positive. Everything from the lights, songs, sound, and stage is said to be top notch.
