Jay Z Tickets

Jay Z Tickets - Jay Z Tour

Jay Z Tour Schedule

For years Jay Z has been a true giant in the music industry, a talent whose broad appeal has transcended the genre of hip hop and made him one of the biggest stars in the world. From his debut with Reasonable Doubt through 2013's Magna Carta, Jay Z has released classic after classic and always delivered top notch live performances to sold out crowds rapping and dancing along. As his star has grown his stage productions have become even more elaborate and his live shows are spectacles not to be missed filled with hip hop classics that even the most casual rap fan knows.

Throughout January Jay Z will be touring across the United States as he wraps up the United States portion of his Magna Carter World Tour. On January 8th he will hit the stage at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio followed by stops in Chicago, Illinois and Auburn Hills, Michigan on the 9th and 10th. January 12th and 13th will be two shows not to be missed as Jay Z will perform a homecoming show at Barclays Arena in Brooklyn on those days. On the 16th Jay Z will head to Washington D.C., followed by dates in Connecticut, Boston, Uniondale, New York, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Toronto, Montreal, Philadelphia, and Buffalo, before finishing the tour at Union Park, Pennsylvania on January 31st.


About the Artist

Jay Z, born Shawn Carter, has been a fixture on the hip hop scene since even before the release of his debut album Reasonable Doubt. Haling from the Marcy Projects in Brooklyn, Jay Z benefited from the tutelage of Notorious B.I.G. before his passing and told vivid tales of his life on the streets which gave him instant street cred as well as setting the stage for his huge crossover success. He opened the 40/40 Club, was instrumental in the building of Barclays Center in Brooklyn which brought the former New Jersey Nets of the NBA to Brooklyn, is a co-founder of Rocawear as well as Rocafella Records, and more recently founded Roc Nation Sports in which he serves as a sports agent for NBA and MLB players. He has has three albums named among the top 500 greatest albums of all time according to Rolling Stone who also named him the 88th greatest artist of all time. Jay Z has won 17 Grammy awards and has sold more than 75 million albums across the world. He is also known for his lavish lifestyle and is married to pop superstar Beyonce.


Breakthrough

While Jay Z's debut album Reasonable Doubt would eventually go on to receive platinum status, he was certainly no overnight success. Jay Z worked hard performing around the neighborhood in which he grew up and had no major label support for his early recordings and would typically sell CDs out of his car after shows early in his musical career which led him to found his own label Rocafela Records with his friends Kareem Biggs and Damon Dash. Slick production and an appearance by The Notorious B.I.G. on Reasonable Doubt caused the album to gain attention as well as critical praise. His third album proved to be his first huge success with the song Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) receiving major airplay on radio stations across all formats as well as major airplay on MTV. The strength of the album's sales led Jay Z to duet with Mariah Carey on one of her hit singles and he was well established as a mainstream superstar.


The Experience

You have been waiting for months, if not years, for this night to come and finally as the lights lower you begin to see Jay Z making his way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as the talented performer approaches the mic. A hush falls over the crowd as Jay Z thanks them and launches into a fan favorite like Big Pimpin,' Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem), Can I Get A...., or 99 Problems. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. Jay Z may still be in is a veteran performer who definitely knows his way around the stage and how to work a crowd, this will be evident from the moment he hits the stage until the second he steps off accompanied by the cheers of thousands of fans. The high energy output from Jay Z and his touring group translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing along.


Trivia

Despite all of his success, Jay Z's carer has not been without controversy as he has had notable beefs with other artists including Nas and Prodigy. Jay Z was charged with stabbing Lance Un Rivera in 1999 at the Kit Kat Club in New York during Q Tip's record release party. Allegedly Jay Z had stabbed Rivera for selling bootleg copies of his latest album.
