Jay Z and Kanye West opened up their Watch The Throne tour in Atlanta @ The Phillips Arena on Friday night. It was Watch the Throne mania with diehard fans of the hip hop stars.

Both artists were onstage for the opening act, performing songs from the new album, Welcome to the Jungle and Otis. Then they each performed a number of their own hits, sometimes singly, sometimes together. The audience roared when they heard favorites like West’s Monster, Power, Touch the Sky and Gold Digger and Jay-Z’s Dirt Off Your Shoulder, Big Pimpin’, Izzo and 99 Problems.
The show has received great reviews thus far. On a night where the two kings definitely put their wealth on full display, lucky for Atlanta, Jay and Kanye West were willing to share.
So, where is the duo headed next? Can you say…Greensboro North Carolina?!!
