Jay Z will play extra shows in both London and Manchester this October.

The rapper was already scheduled to play a handful of gigs at the venue as part of his UK and Ireland tour in support of new album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail', but has now added two new dates to his jaunt at Manchester Arena on October 4 and London O2 Arena on October 14.

Jay Z will now play:

Manchester Arena (October 3, 4)
London O2 Arena (10, 11, 12, 14)

Earlier today (July 18), it was revealed that Jay Z has officially dropped the hyphen from his name. Billboard editor Joe Levy last night informed people of the name change via Twitter, writing: "Breaking: Jay Z has dropped the hyphen from his name, according to his label. I am not kidding. (Wish I was.) Copy editors: take note."

Jay Z released 'Magna Carta Holy Grail' last week, and it was revealed yesterday (July 17) that the LP has already broken US streaming records on Spotify after clocking up 14 million plays. The album also had the biggest single day for streaming an album in US Spotify history, and went straight to Number One in the Official UK Album Charts last week.

Read interviews with Jay Z's collaborators on the record in the current issue of NME, on newsstands now or available digitally.
