Possibly one of the world's richest rappers is returning to the UK and Ireland, just months after appearing at East London's massive Wireless Festival this weekend.

Jay-Z, who pumped up the Wireless crowd on Sunday alongside Justin Timberlake, will perform a handful of arena concerts in October, starting with Manchester Arena on 3rd October, Dublin on the 6th, Birmingham on the 8th then three nights at London's O2 Arena on 10th, 11th and 12th October.

The Grammy-winning rapper, who has successfully shipped over 40 million units since issuing his 1996 debut-album "Reasonable Doubt", will be concentrating on his latest long-player entitled "Magna Carta Holy Grail", currently sitting at #1 on the UK Albums Chart. Already a platinum-awarded release in the States, the album (his twelfth studio set and his first ever UK chart-topper) features guests Frank Ocean, Nas, Pharrell and more.

Mr Beyonce's tickets are on sale now, priced from £65 to £70, depending on the venue.
