News: Timbaland Packs His Bags, Joins Jay Z’s Magna Carta Overseas Trip
Thursday, Sep 19, 2013 2:55PM
Grammy-winning producer Timbaland is reportedly going to take his relationship with Jay Z out of the studio and onto the road as reports claim he is joining the upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail tour.
According to reports, Timbo will join Jay for a slate of United Kingdom dates.
Timbaland has announced that he will be joining Jay Z on tour in the UK next month.
The rapper and producer will be a guest on the Magna Carter World Tour when it comes to Europe.
The pair have become friends again after falling out at the end of The Blueprint 3 album.
“A couple of songs were getting leaked that were his songs and that whole thing just ruined the process,” said Jay Z.
“Everyone has to put egos aside for the sake of the project and he wasn’t accepting of that and that was almost like the last straw.
“When he came back, I saw a new Timbaland. He has this maturity and this growth and I was like, ‘Oh OK, this is going to work out’,” he added. (BBC UK)
The Great Britain tour is expected to launch within the next two weeks.
Timbaland has been confirmed as a support act on Jay Z’s upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail Uk and Ireland tour. Full dates are below. The producer, rapper and collaborator will be joining The Hov on tour, which kicks off in Manchester on 3 October. Timbaland made headlines earlier this year when it was revealed that he almost missed out on the chance to work with Jay Z on new album Magna Carta Holy Grail after the old friends fell out. Timbaland revealed that Jay Z almost didn’t invite him to take part in the hit making process due to a personal slight, following their last collaboration on The Blueprint 3 in 2009.
Earlier this month, Jigga’s team announced a handful of big venue performance dates in the United States.
Fresh off his “Legends of the Summer” tour with Justin Timberlake, Jay Z has announced the first dates for his “Magna Carter World Tour.”
The North American outing gets underway on Nov. 30 in St. Paul, making its way to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, and Atlanta. The 34-date arena trek will continue throughout the new year, with stops in Chicago, Brooklyn, and Boston before wrapping on Jan. 31 in State College, Penn.
Jay Z’s album Magna Carta… Holy Grail recently went double platinum and he toured stadiums with Justin Timberlake on the sold-out “Legends of the Summer” tour earlier this summer.
