Jay-Z, rapper and husband of Beyonce, is scheduled to appear at Golden 1 Center on Dec. 17.

The tour is named after his latest album. The “4:44” album, released Friday, is said to be replete with references to the life of the rapper, who was born Shawn Carter.

According to The Associated Press, on the title track, he apologizes to Beyonce for some of his past decisions. On “Kill Jay Z,” the album’s opening track, the rapper addresses the elevator fight from 2014, in which Beyonce’s sister was caught on video attacking the rapper.

“You egged Solange on, knowing all along, all you had to say you was wrong,” Jay-Z raps.

Tickets for the 4:44 tour go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday at livenation.com.
