JAY-Z’S TOUR KEEPING HIM ON THE ROAD FOR THANKSGIVING
(AllHipHop News) Jay-Z will be spending his first Thanksgiving and birthday as a father to twins on the road after announcing plans for his 4:44 Tour.
The rap mogul unveiled the 31-date trek on Monday morning, with the shows kicking off in Anaheim, California on October 27 and keeping him away from home for two months.
The concert commitments mean Jay-Z will have to cut short his and wife Beyonce’s first big holiday as a family of five, as he will perform in Toronto, Canada on November 22, on the eve of America’s Thanksgiving celebrations on November 23.
He will return to the stage in Boston, Massachusetts on November 25.
Meanwhile, it appears the “Empire State of Mind” hitmaker, real name Shawn Carter, will also mark his 48th birthday on December 4 on tour, as he plays in Uniondale, New York on December 2, with just two nights off before heading to Chicago, Illinois on December 5.
However, Jay-Z will be able to make up for his absence and spend some quality time with Beyonce, five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, and their boy and girl twins over Christmas as he will close out the dates on December 21 in Los Angeles, where the superstar couple is now based.
The 4:44 Tour is his first string of solo concerts since wrapping the Magna Carta World Tour in early 2014.
He also embarked on a joint trek with Beyonce that summer, performing together for the “On the Run Tour.”
