Live Nation Opens Australia Branch, Announces Tour With U2 & Jay-Z
Hova joints U2’s 360 Tour in Australia, with five November and December tour stops to commemorate the newly formed Live Nation Australia.
Live Nation has gone down under. Billboard.com revealed that the concert promotion giant recently launched an Australian affiliate to form Live Nation Australia.
As a result of this deal, U2’s upcoming 360 Tour just announced added dates to Australia this November. As an opening act, Jay-Z will provide his services. The added dates to the 360 Tour include Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium on November 25, then stops in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and the Perth’s Subiaco Oval on December 18.
Live Nation Australia officially opened on July 1 of this year. In related news, Jay-Z topped the Forbes’ “2010 Hip-Hop Cash Kings,” published last week.
