Jay-Z Announces San Diego Show

Rap star Jay-Z will play Viejas Arena on Dec. 19

With new youngsters at home, a new critically-acclaimed album out on the market and the hyphen re-instated in his name, Jay-Z is ready for the road.

Earlier this morning, our friends at Live Nation announced Jay-Z’s fall and winter North American tour, and it looks like Christmas will come a little early when he stops at Viejas Arena at San Diego State University on Tuesday, Dec. 19.

It’s been a minute since he’s rolled through town, with his last appearance nearly four years ago at Valley View Casino Center on the Magna Carter World Tour. One thing’s clear though: He likes San Diego winters.

As a special treat, members of Jay-Z’s streaming platform Tidal will have special access to an exclusive pre-sale on Monday, July 10, at 9 a.m. Meanwhile, the Citi cardmembers’ pre-sale runs July 10-13 through Citi’s Private Pass program.

For the rest of y'all, tickets for the 4:44 Tour go on sale on Friday, July 14, at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website. VIP packages are available at
