Jay-Z to Join U2 on Tour in Australia
The trek will kick off at Auckland's Mount Smart Stadium on Nov. 25 and make stops in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney before wrapping up at Perth's Subiaco Oval -- marking the first time U2 has played in Perth since 1998.
As previously reported, tickets will be priced at $39.90 and almost 45% of the tickets will be priced under $100. Tickets to all concerts will go on sale Sept. 3.
Jay-Z was recently named hip-hop's top earner for 2009-2010 by Forbes Magazine with $63 million, while U2 became the top earning tour band, with its 2009 world tour earning $300 million. U2's 360 tour is also on pace to become the top-grossing tour in history, besting the Rolling Stones' Bigger Bang tour, which grossed $558 million in 2005-2007, according to Billboard Boxscore.
