Jay-Z Confirms Summer Tour Guests

Drake and Mr Hudson to perform

American rap don Jay-Z has confirmed appearances from Drake, Mr Hudson and more on his upcoming UK tour.

Jay-Z has finally cracked Britain. Years of one off hits and small tours have finally erupted into fully blown stardom.

With his album ‘The Blueprint 3’ mauling the charts, the rapper is set to hit the festivals. With his game changing appearance at Glastonbury a lingering memory, crowds will gather for headline slots at Isle Of Wight, Oxegen and more.

In addition to this, Jay-Z has confirmed a series of arena appearances throughout the summer. The rapper will play some of his biggest British shows to date, with the hip hop icon taking some stellar entertainment along for the ride.

Newcomer Drake is set to appear alongside Jay-Z, fresh from appearing on the rap star’s hit album. Meanwhile Mr Hudson is also due to perform, following the success of his recent solo record.

A British indie star, Mr Hudson was plucked from relative obscurity by the combined talents of Jay-Z and Kanye West. Appearing on material recorded by both artists, the British singer made a star appearance on ‘The Blueprint 3’.

Jay-Z is set to play two massive arena shows, beginning in Manchester on June 7th. Travelling to Birmingham on June 9th, the rapper will then headline London’s massive Wireless festival.

Taking place in Hyde Park, the rapper will dominate a bill which also includes appearances from Lily Allen and countless more.

Jay-Z will play the following shows:

7 Manchester MEN Arena
9 Birmingham LG Arena

4 London Hyde Park
