Jay-Z to join U2 on Australia tour

Tuesday, 24th Aug 2010

Jay-Z is to join U2 during the Australia and New Zealand leg of their current tour, the band has announced.

The rapper is set to perform as the support act for the Irish band when they head down under for their 360 Degrees Tour in November.

It is the first time that the 99 Problems performer has played a gig in Australia since 2006 and his arrival in Auckland on November 25th 2010 will mark Jay-Z's first ever New Zealand show.

The two chart-topping acts will also perform concerts in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth through December.

Fans of the two acts may hope that they will join together on stage to give a rendition of Sunday Bloody Sunday, which they first performed in November 2009 in front of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate.

Prior to their arrival in Australia and New Zealand, U2 are to perform in various European cities including Paris and Munich, with support from acts including One Republic and Interpol.
