After news that Kanye is coming back to town for a gig at the Pepsi Center in November, now comes word that hip-hop's other monolithic maestro is also making his way back to the Mile High City for a return engagement at the Pepsi Center, where he rocked in '10. As you might recall, the pair were originally slated to bring their Watch the Throne tour through town a few Octobers ago, but the itinerary ended up being revised. Tickets ($29.50-$125) to Jay Z's show at the Pepsi Center on Monday, December 2, go on sale next Thursday, September 12, and fans can also RSVP for a special pre-sale on Wednesday, September 11.
