Jay-Z & Ciara Live (also known as Jay-Z Live with Special Guest Ciara), was a 2009 summer concert tour headlined by rapper Jay-Z and R&B singer Ciara. The tour was in support of both artists' new albums, The Blueprint 3 and Fantasy Ride. The six city United States tour took place from July 2 to July 12, 2009. The tour was originally scheduled to have ten dates, but this was later changed to six. The opening act for the tour was rapper Fabolous.

Ciara did not appear at the first tour date for an unknown reason, but she did appear at the second show at The Palms. The July 12 stop in Atlanta, Georgia was cancelled due to heavy rain.

Critical reception[edit]

The tour received positive to favorable reviews from critics.

Los Angeles Times gave the whole tour a very positive review, saying Ciara worked hard during her brief set, executing some impressive acrobatics along with her four dancers. Her street-tough image is powerful—she and her dancers wore ripped jeans and leather vests, like a sleeked-up girl gang—but her delivery was unfocused, and she didn’t seem to be enjoying herself. The newspaper also gave Jay-Z a positive review saying that his set was exciting and kept the audience very hyped. They also continued saying he interacted with audience very well.[4]
