Because both of these acts are pretty big deals and because, as a result, you’d probably want to know when either of them announces tour dates, we figured we would kill two birds with one stone and detail both acts’ newly announced dates in one fell swoop. So, here’s the deal:

Vampire Weekend, which will unveil its sophomore studio album on January 12th (get another preview, in the form of “Cousins”, here) are finally beginning to map out tour dates away from sunny California. Now included on the band’s upcoming itinerary are three nights in the Big Apple as well as two weeks worth of dates in the United Kingdom. There are also rumors that the band will return to Cali in April for an appearance at a certain music festival, but that has yet to be officially confirmed. Tickets here.

Fresh off an appearance at Rihanna’s London gig, the producer of Fela!, the boss of The Ting Tings, and the creator of The Blueprint 3, aka known to you and me as Jay-Z, has added several more dates to the 2010 leg of his Blueprint 3 tour. Among the newest cities getting love are Sunrise, FL, E. Rutherford, NJ, Long Island, NY, and Auburn Hills, MI. Tickets here.
