Webster Hall is back! The iconic NYC venue closed its doors last year and it’s already re-opening after extensive renovation.


To properly break in the new space, the venue has enlisted in Jay-Z to soundtrack the epic return. The rapper’s “B-Sides 2” show takes place Friday, April 26. The performance is set to be a very special one, billed especially for his “day 1 fans.”

“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,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of BSE Global. “No one fits that description better than JAY-Z, who will join an unparalleled list of celebrated performers who have played Webster Hall.”

In the grand scheme of things, Webster Hall hasn’t been gone for long — but it was deeply missed. Get ready for tons of new music and tours coming through soon!

Jay-Z tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday at 11 a.m.

MGMT, Dillon Francis, Empire of the Sun, TroyBoi and Chromeo have also been booked to play.
