London: Rapper Jay-Z is reportedly set to join Irish rock band U2 on their Australian tour.

The band is back on the road after lead singer Bono had to undergo surgery to correct a herniated disc, the Daily Express reported.

They have now extended their 360 Degree Tour with a string of year-end dates in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth in December this year. They will also make a stop in Auckland, New Zealand.

The tour will kick off at Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium on November 25 and wrap up in Perth, where U2 will make their first tour stop in 12 years.
