The shows kicked off at Atlanta's Philips Arena on Friday and the hip-hop stars delighted the crowd by performing their solo hits and their new joint material.
Jay-Z struggled through the first few tracks due to problems with his earpiece, and stopped the show so the technical problem could be rectified, telling crew members, "Can you please turn my ear up so I can hear ATL?," before continuing with the gig."
The pair played joint tracks including "Otis," "Gotta Have It" and "Run This Town," while they also performed Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind," and West's tracks including "Stronger," "Power" and "Heartless," according to MTV.com.
