U2′s newly-announced Australian tour is set to be the ticket of the year – JAY-Z will reportedly join the Irish rockers on the road Down Under.
The band returned to the road at the beginning of the month after frontman Bono underwent spinal surgery to correct a herniated disc – and now the Beautiful Day hitmakers have extended their 360 Degree Tour with a string of year-end dates in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth in December. They will also make a stop in Auckland, New Zealand.
And now it looks like rapper Jay-Z will make the trip as well.
The trek will kick off at Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium on November 25, 2010 and wrap up in Perth, where U2 will make their first tour stop in 12 years.
