Jay-Z In The Midst Of Setting Up $150m Tour Deal For Wife Beyoncé
Jay-Z is believed to have approached Live Nation and pitched the idea of his superstar wife hitting the road. He believes the shows will sell out all over the world.
‘Just weeks after the birth of Blue Ivy, Jay met with Live Nation to discuss a tour for Beyoncé,’ a source told New York Post. ‘He wanted a deal worth about $150million, but they countered with a lower offer.’
Beyoncé currently has a joint management deal with Jay’s label Roc Nation and Live Nation.
Earlier this year, the 30-year-old singer hinted that she would be interested in embarking on a world tour.
Beyoncé is in high demand despite taking a break from her career following the birth of her first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in January.
Simon Cowell was said to be eager for her Beyonce to join the judge panel on the US version of The X Factor. But those rumors were laid to rest after her father dismissed the rumor of her joining the show.
‘It would never happen as Beyoncé would never do that,’ he explained earlier this month. ‘There are a few things that she would never do and that is one. It’s not for her.’
