*Jay-Z and U2 are coming together for the first big gig under Live Nation Austrialia. The rapper, a very busy man lately, is going to appear as a special guest on state during U2’s 360 Tour in Austrailia.
The five-city tour will be the first concert promoted by the new Live Nation Australia. The outing will begin in Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium on November 25 and make its way to amphitheatres across the country, stopping in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. It will conclude at Perth’s Subiaco Oval on December 18.
This isn’t the first time the two nearly opposites have joined forces. Earlier this year, both acts, as well as Rihanna, performed their benefit song “Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour)” as part of the “Hope for Haiti Now” telethon.
In addition to their charity song, Jay-Z and U2 also proved to be music heavyweights when they made the top 10 on Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s top-earning musicians.
