New York City’s beloved Webster Hall is ready to re-open after undergoing extensive renovations, and they’ve recruited perhaps the biggest NYC artist of this century to help celebrate their return: Jay-Z.
The four-level venue located in the East Village of Manhattan closed its doors for some serious renovations starting back in August 2017 following its acquisition by AEG Live and BSE Global. Now, BSE Global and The Bowery Presents, AEG Presents’ regional partner, are responsible for booking Webster Hall’s artist lineup.
Webster Hall will officially re-open on Friday, April 26th with Jay onstage. The performance is billed as “Jay-Z: B-Sides 2.” As Brett Yormark, CEO of BSE Global, explained 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 performance at the club is a massive underplay for Jay-Z, who routinely tours major arenas around the country.
An AMEX Card Member pre-sale for the show will begin this Thursday, April 18th, at 10:00 a.m. local time. Tickets will go on sale to the general public the following day, Friday, April 19th. For further ticketing information, head here.
The announcement of Jay-Z as the re-opening night performer at Webster Hall comes in the wake of the venue’s announcement of a busy slate of shows for this summer and fall, including shows by Patti Smith (5/1), Dharon Van Etten (5/4), FKJ (5/7), Lawrence (5/10), Broken Social Scene (5/16, 5/17), Chromeo Live Band (5/20), MGMT (5/22, 5/23, 5/24), Empire of the Sun (6/6, 6/7), Chris Robinson Brotherhood (10/9) and many more.
