LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – While reports of Beyonce’s due date surfaced yesterday, the news came just weeks after Jay-Z told press of changes to his Watch the Throne Tour dates. On August 2, 2011, Jay-Z told news that demand for his Watch The Tour had prompted concert date changes. But at that time, there was no explanation why certain cities dropped from the tour weren’t added later on. So why wasn’t the tour extended into January? As reported on Monday, Beyonce’s due date is in February.
Jay-Z and Beyonce are reportedly hoping for a baby boy. The due date is sometime in February 2012. Jay-Z wraps up his rescheduled Watch the Tour just weeks earlier on December 18. His final stop is Vancouver, British Columbia.
At the time when the tour was been reworked, Jay-Z made no mention of Beyonce’s pregnancy. He told Angie Martinez just several days ago “That’s an old list we had to push that back, because it was like, we tried to put it out in pre-order and all the lines got jammed”.
He added “We pushed it back to really route it and put other dates on there. We’ll probably put four New York dates there instead.” He said “all the [telephone] lines got jammed”. Kelly Rowland told news this week that Beyonce has been pregnant for several months.
