Just hours after Jay-Z joined U2 onstage in Berlin at the MTV European Music Awards, Jigga announced dates for the second leg of his Blueprint 3 tour. Jay-Z still has four more shows left on his run on college campuses in November, but he’ll return to the road in 2010 starting February 22nd in Houston, Texas.

If you’re looking at the tour dates and wondering where’s all the New York love from the “Empire State of Mind” rapper — even though Jay has performed at Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, a tiny DJ Hero concert and Yankee Stadium in the past few months — don’t fret: Information about shows in Uniondale, New York and neighboring East Rutherford, New Jersey will be announced soon, as will dates for concerts in Atlantic City, New Jersey and Detroit, Michigan.

Speaking of “Empire State of Mind,” MTV reports that Jay-Z will contribute a new verse for “Part 2″ of his and Alicia Keys’ BP3 smash, with the new version featuring own Keys’ upcoming album The Element of Freedom, out in December.
