After a summer blockbuster tour with Justin Timberlake that hit stadiums across the country, Jay Z has revealed plans to return to the road this winter for a tour of his own. The hip-hop legend will make multiple stops in New England, including a performance at Boston’s TD Garden on Saturday, January 18. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $32.50 to $150, will go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Magna Carta Holy Grail, Jay Z’s twelfth studio album and follow-up to 2009’s The Blueprint 3, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release in July. It features guest appearances by Timberlake, Nas, Rick Ross, Frank Ocean and wife Beyonce. Production on the album was primarily handled by Timbaland and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, while other producers included Pharrell Williams, Hit-Boy, Mike Dean, The-Dream, and Swizz Beatz among others. The video for lead single “Holy Grail” is streaming below.

Prior to the show in Boston, Jay Z will perform at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Friday, January 17. Tickets for the show will go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $119 and $149.
