The rap legend’s “B-Sides 2” show will be Jay’s first time playing Manhattan’s East Village club that first opened in 1886. “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,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of BSE Global in the statement. “No one fits that description better than JAY-Z, who will join an unparalleled list of celebrated performers who have played Webster Hall.”
Other acts confirmed to perform at the re-opened location over the next few months include: Dillon Francis, Patti Smith and Her Band, Rosalia, MGMT, Empire of the Sun, Sigrid, TroyBoi, Old Dominion, Sharon Van Etten, Broken Social Scene, Real Estate, Chromeo, Big Thief and more; click here for a full schedule of shows and events.
