Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Hot hip hop artist Jay-Z is hitting the road this Fall. The rapper released tickets today to his upcoming North American tour, opening at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota on November 30, 2013.
Dubbed the Magna Carter World Tour, the trek is on top his 12th studio album called Magna Carta Holy Grail, which opened at Number One on the Billboard charts in July.
The effort kicks off with a European leg opening at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England on October 3 and concluding at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on October 29, 2013.
This latest road trip is Jay Z's first solo headlining tour in almost four years, following his 2009 Fall Tour. The star just recently wrapped a sold out Legends of Summer stadium swing with co-headliner and friend Justin Timberlake.
After opening in St. Paul, Jay-Z’s 34-date North American tour is scheduled to perform in Lincoln, Denver, Anaheim, San Diego, L.A., Fresno, San Jose, Las Vegas, Oklahoma city, Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, and Atlanta.
Next on the schedule: Birmingham, Sunrise, Charlotte, Greensboro, Cleveland, Chicago, Auburn Hills, Brooklyn, D.C., Uncasville, Boston, Uniondale, Pittsburgh, Newark, Montreal, Toronto, Philly, and Buffalo.
The current wrap is set for the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pennsylvania on January 31, 2014.

Three of his albums, Reasonable Doubt (1996), The Blueprint (2001), and The Black Album (2003), are also thought to be landmarks in the genre, and all are featured in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
Jay-Z is also one of the most financially successful hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs in America. In its November 2012 issue, Forbes Magazine estimated Jay-Z’s net worth at nearly $500 million.
Currently, the artist co-owns the 40/40 Club, has a minority stake in NBA's Brooklyn Nets and is also co-creator of the clothing line Rocawear.
