Nationwide — According to both the New York Post and the Los Angeles Times, rapper Jay-Z and his wife singer Beyoncé will be launching a joint tour this summer called “The Mr. and Mrs. Carter Tour”. Reportedly, the two will perform side-by-side in 20 different U.S. cities.
The couple, who have now been married for six years, are not strangers to joint performances. They have done it many times before, but have never officially gone on tour together. Most recently, the pair opened the 56th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles with a performance of their song “Drunk in Love”.
Individually, the pair has had astronomical success on the road. For example, Beyoncé’s most recent Mrs. Carter World Tour raked in more than $100 million and took her around the globe, performing more than 130 times.
Jay-Z’s most recent tour with Justin Timberlake grossed nearly $70 million, not including the millions he made from the Magna Carter World Tour, which he did solo.
And another note, Jay-Z also recently announced that he would bring his Philadelphia-based Made in America music fest to Los Angeles for Labor Day weekend.
