Good news for those of you living north of Watford Gap, after spoiling Londoners with not one, not two but five shows in the capital this May, hip hops dynamic duo Jay-Z and Kanye West have added two more dates to their tour, one in Birmingham and one in Sheffield. You’ll still have to wait the best part of a month after London to catch the pair’s Watch The Throne shows as they head for mainland Europe straight after the O2 Arena gigs, not returning to the UK until 8th June, but at least organisers are recognising that London isn't the only part of the UK interested in seeing the hip hop heavyweights.
