JAY-Z is looking to heat up the summer with several headlining festival gigs (The Meadows, Austin City Limits and Made in America) as well as a forthcoming album titled 4:44 dropping on Tidal and Spring exclusively on June 30, but the rap mogul may wait till next season for a proper tour.
Sources tell Page Six that a JAY-Z tour was initially slated for summer but “has been moved to fall because of the kids.” His wife, singer Beyoncé, reportedly gave birth to twins at a Los Angeles hospital this past weekend.
The trek would be in support of 4:44 and most likely be produced and promoted by Live Nation, which recently signed a 10-year touring deal with JAY-Z worth a reported $200 million in May.
His previous tours have been joint ventures including 2014’s On The Run Tour with Beyoncé, 2013’s Legends of the Summer tour with Justin Timberlake and 2011’s Watch the Throne tour with Kanye West — with the exception of 2013’s Magna Carter world tour. No word on whether he’d team up with a special guest for this potential run or ride it out solo.
Billboard has reached out to JAY-Z and Live Nation reps for comment.
