Jay-Z brought his “Legends of the Summer” tour with Justin Timberlake home to New York’s Yankee Stadium on Friday for the first of two back-to-back shows. The hip-hop mogul performed his classics and new material off Magna Carta… Holy Grail, and brought out Alicia Keys to serenade his city with “Empire State of Mind.”
Beyoncé, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Tyler, the Creator, Ne-Yo, and Angela Simmons were among the stars in the crowd.
Following the sold-out show, Jay-Z hosted an after-party at his 40/40 club. Mr. and Mrs. Carter sipped D’Usse cognac as they held court in VIP.
Jay-Z and Justin will play a second show at Yankee Stadium tonight before heading to Chicago, L.A., and Vancouver.
