Catch Your First Glimpse of the “Watch the Throne” Tour
Posted by Videoson 10/29/2011 at 2:07 PM
One of the most anticipated tours of 2011 finally kicked off last night at the Philips Arena last night—a main event hyped enough that it didn’t even require the services of an opening act—Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne tour. “The build was perfect, even if the execution wasn’t,” MTV said of the duo’s set, mentioning some technical issues the two experienced, but generally giving off a positive impression of the show. Of course, there is video, including of the duo’s “Otis” (with a very long Otis Redding intro) and of Jay-Z’s “Jigga What, Jigga Who” trading off with Kanye’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”
Watch a couple of the fan videos below, and be sure to check the itinerary to see when the duo are coming to your town. (New York next weekend!)
