Jay Z and Kanye West have finally announced tour dates to accompany their long-awaited hip hop album Watch the Throne.

The self-proclaimed "greatest ever" rap stars, who collectively are going by the grandiose name of The Throne, will perform 24 dates across North America.

Tickets for the tour will be available on the same day as the album "drops" on August 8th.

The duo will kick off their spectacular tour at Detroit's Palace of Auburn Hills in September, before wrapping up in Boston in March.

Swizz Beatz, the legendary hip hop producer, who has lent his production skills to the new album, recently told MTV that Jay Z and Kanye West have made a classic record.

He said: "Man. All I gotta say is man. Ooh-wee.

"That album is amazing, but I have to let those guys talk about that, because that's their expression. All I can tell you is it passed the bar."

The Throne's first single release from the new album will be Otis, an overt reference to the famous soul singer Otis Reading, whose song Try a Little Tenderness is sampled in the track.
