Jay-Z Is Re-opening New York’s Webster Hall With A ‘B-Sides’ Show
Jay-Z will reopen the iconic New York City venue at the end of this month following a lengthy renovation.
Jay-Z’s “The B-Sides 2” show will feature rarely performed tracks from his long catalog of music. He will take the stage on April 26th, according to Rolling Stone. His initial “B-sides” shows took place at New York’s Terminal 5 back in May 2015.
Tickets for Jay-Z’s Webster Hall show go on sale to the general public this Friday at Ticketmaster. This will be Jay-Z’s first show at the historic venue.
Webster Hall was acquired by the Brooklyn Sports Entertainment (BSE) Global and The Bowery Presents.Webster Hall has been around since 1886, which made it New York City’s oldest venue that was still in operation until it went under renovation back in 2017.
BSE Global CEO Brett Yormark said in a statement:
“When we were thinking about who would be the right choice to open this legendary venue, we knew it had to be a world-famous New York City icon ,No one fits that description better than Jay-Z, who will join an unparalleled list of celebrated performers who have played Webster Hall.”
The venue has secured other big names for future shows including Patti Smith and MGMT but Jay-Z being first is definitely for the culture!
