The last time Jay-Z and Kanye West performed in Las Vegas, they did so together, at the pair's December 9, 2011 Watch the Throne tour stop at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Perhaps it's fitting, then, that both superstar rappers announced tour schedules—featuring Las Vegas dates—within minutes of each other today.

West's "The Yeezus Tour," in support of June album Yeezus, hits the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday, October 25. Tickets run from $50-$175 and go on sale Friday, September 13 at 10 a.m.

Jay-Z's "Magna Carter World Tour," in support of July album Magna Carta… Holy Grail, stops at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Friday, December 13. Tickets cost $40-$150 and go on sale Thursday, September 12 at 10 a.m.
