Multi-Grammy award-winning rap star Jay-Z may perform in Israel this fall as part of his “Magna Carta” European tour, according to entertainment show host Guy Pines.
Details of the concert are yet to be finalized, but Jay-Z’s people are in advanced talks with producer Shuki Weiss, reported Pines. The “Magna Carta” tour is set to kick off in Manchester, England on October 3, and it appears likely that Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, will add Tel Aviv to his long list of tour dates. The 17-time Grammy winner would probably hold just one concert here.
The phenomenally successful rapper, whose net worth is estimated at nearly $500 million, is currently on tour with singer Justin Timberlake in their joint “Legends of the Summer” concerts.
Pines reported that Jay-Z’s wife, singer-superstar Beyonce, isn’t expected to join her husband in Israel or during the European tour, as she will still be performing in “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.” The couple’s daughter, one-year-old Blue Ivy, won’t be joining her father, either.
