Today’s sell-out, in less than 15 minutes, is the 8th MSG sell-out in JAY-Z’s career, with three of those sell-outs in 2008 ranking among the top ten grosses of all time for the historic venue.
Today also marks the release of JAY-Z’s new album, The Blueprint 3 on Roc Nation, which is a follow-up to The Blueprint which was released on September 11, 2001. JAY-Z will also kick off a college arena tour on October 9th at Penn State with tickets going on sale beginning Friday, September 11th at LiveNation.com.
“I’m a native New Yorker and the strength and resiliency of New Yorkers makes me proud. This was my chance to do something for the great city of New York and help create more awareness of the New York Police & Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund,” said JAY-Z.
