Jay-Z Added to iHeartRadio Music Festival

Jay-Z is headed to Las Vegas. Half of The Throne has been added to the already star-studded bill for the iHeartRadio Music Festival.

Hov will close out opening night of Clear Channel’s two-day festival, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, on September 23 and 24 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“When we conceived the iHeartRadio Music Festival we set out to break down boundaries between genres and assemble a collection of the biggest musicians in the world,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman of Media and Entertainment Platforms for Clear Channel. “Jay-Z embodies that range; he has had a defining influence on music, and the creative influence he continues to have on other artists cannot be overstated. Adding him to the line-up is yet one more reason the festival will be a once-in-a-lifetime music event.”

The sold-out music extravaganza also includes superstar acts such as Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, the Black Eyed Peas, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Steven Tyler, Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Jane’s Addiction, John Mayer, David Guetta, Rascal Flatts, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Sublime with Rome, and special performances by Usher and Sting.
