The O2 will be the venue for the start of Kanye West and Jay-Z's European tour in May.

Tickets to see the hip hop and R&B duo, who joined together to record the album Watch The Throne last year, will be available from Friday at 9am.

The North Greenwich venue will be the first in a 12-date tour beginning on May 20, although more appearances are likely to be added.

Tickets in London will be priced at £60, £49.50 and £39.50.

Other UK performances already confirmed are Manchester Arena and Birmingham LG Arena in June.

Watch The Throne sold 1.3million copies in the US and includes singles Otis and H-A-M.
