Jay-Z will be performing two additional shows at Brooklyn’s new Barclays Center. The rapper was already slated perform to kick off the big September 29th opening for the luxurious complex, and today (July 9th) it was announced that more shows will take place on September 29th and 30th.
“Jay-Z is Brooklyn and is the definitive artist to open Barclays Center,” said Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark. “We are thrilled that such an iconic world-class entertainer, not to mention a Brooklynite, will take the borough’s biggest stage on three consecutive nights for what will surely be a historic experience for all fans.”
Jay-Z is also a minority investor of the Brooklyn Nets and will serve as Director of the Brooklyn Arena Firm.
