Jay-Z At The Barclays Center

Jay-Z Opens The Barclays Center, Unveils Brooklyn Nets Jersey

(AllHipHop News) Rap mogul Jay-Z opened the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York over the weekend, where he kicked off an eight-date concert series.

The rapper hit the stage on Friday (September 28) and has performed three of the eight sold out shows that take place over the course of this month in the new arena, which also houses Jay’s 40/40 Club.

Over 18,000 people attended the concert at The Barclays Center, where Jay-Z also sported the new Brooklyn Nets jersey.

The rapper went through his deep catalog of hits, while paying homage to Brooklyn-raised rapper Big Daddy Kane, who hit the stage with the Jay-Z on the opening.

Jay-Z’s concerts at The Barclays Center will wind down on October 6.

Check out some pictures of the concert below:

    A whole lot of hoopla for a sub-.500 season this year. FOH.

  • This guy Jay-Z has partial ownership of the Nets, and the Barclays Center, plus he owns the 40/40 club inside, and he is doing 8 shows? Great way to keep all the cash…Go Jay-Z…..shoot for the stars, I guess.
