Jay-Z is set to be the opening act when the legendary Webster Hall in New York City reopens later this month after years-long renovation.
The iconic East Village venue, which boasts a capacity of 1,500 in its main ballroom, first closed for renovations in 2017.
Jay-Z’s April 26 concert, titled “The B-Sides 2” after his legendary “B-Sides” shows performed in New York’s Terminal 5 back in May 2015, will feature rarely performed tracks from his discography.
“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,” Brooklyn Sports Entertainment Global CEO Brett Yormark said in a statement. “No one fits that description better than Jay-Z, who will join an unparalleled list of celebrated performers who have played Webster Hall.”
Tickets for Jay-Z’s Webster Hall show go on sale to the general public on April 19th at Ticketmaster.
