Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne Tour begins tonight and tickets are selling like hotcakes. According to TicketNetwork Exchange data*, approximately 17% of all ticket sales for the tour have been made in the last seven days. In contrast, the previous week's sales only accounted for 6% of tickets sold. The concerts are arriving quickly now, so people who want to attend them know that if they don't get tickets now they might lose out.
However, not all of the tickets sold were for folks late to the game for the concerts in Atlanta tonight and tomorrow. In fact, the largest chunk of tickets sold in that period, or about a third, is for the two Madison Square Garden dates next weekend. A smaller amount of tickets were sold for dates that are farther out.

After leaving Atlanta, the duo will travel up and down the east coast for the first half of the tour. Then they'll head west and south for the second half of the tour. It will end on December 18.
If you don't want to miss out on seeing Jay-Z and Kanye West in concert together, then be sure to buy your tickets as soon as possible!
