Update (7/28/11): We just received word from LiveNation that due to an overwhelming demand, additional dates are being added to the Watch the Throne tour, featuring Jay-Z and Kanye West.

The additional dates are due be announced on August 1, and the presale date to purchase tickets has been moved up to this coming Tuesday, August 2 (official onsale date remains Monday, August 8).
Original item (7/25/11): Holy hip-hop, Batman! Just received confirmation that Kanye West and Jay-Z's hotly anticipated tour in support of their even more eagerly anticipated album, Watch the Throne, due out on August 8, is set to hit the Pepsi Center on Monday, October 10. The last time Jay-Z was at the Pepsi Center, he destroyed. Can hardly imagine what's going to happen with Kayne added to the mix. Sort of afraid that the earth might get knocked off its axis or something.
This Thursday, July 28, those who visit LiveNation.com, will have access to a pre-sale password to purchase advance tickets, which includes a digital copy of the album. Tickets go on sale to the general public on August 8.
