Back in January, Jay Z finished his 52-date “Magna Carta World Tour” which hit stadiums across North America and Europe.

UPDATE: The L.A. Times reports “The Mr. and Mrs. Carter Tour” will begin June 13 in Atlanta, wrapping up in San Francisco on August 6. The Los Angeles stop has a tentative date of August 3 at the Rose Bowl, two days before Eminem and Rihanna’s “The Monster” tour stops in Pasadena for back-to-back nights. The European leg will follow in the fall, including multiple shows in Paris, France.
