Okayafrica News: Jay-Z To Play Seven Cities In Africa [Retracted]

jay-z-world-tour-africa-concert-live.

UPDATE: It now appears that a bunch of outlets were erroneously posting details from Jay-Z‘s 2006 Tour, linking to a Billboard article from August of that year (which mysteriously lacks a time-stamp). After some confused reaction on twitter, Okayplayer and Okayafrica have confirmed with sources close to Hov (specifically dream hampton) that this is indeed old info and no new dates on the continent have been set for 2013. Sorry for the fake-out!

Rap’s goodwill ambassador to the world, Jay-Z has just announced a seven-week world tour to spread awareness about the global water crisis. The tour kicks off Sept. 9th in Poland, with Jay Hov’ing his way through Europe, Africa, Asia and finishing up strong with dates in Australia (sorry, Marco Rubio, no Cuba this time). Within those dates he’ll be playing concerts in seven cities on the bright continent: Dar es Salaam, Accra, Lagos, Luanda, Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg. See the full listing of Jay-Z world tour dates below.
