Jay-Z Hopes To Make Times Square Slightly Less Terrible With Concert Atop Ed Sullivan Theater

f54edf8f5a4dcaf42579fab080df1050 Jay Z Hopes To Make Times Square Slightly Less Terrible With Concert Atop Ed Sullivan Theater

Jay-Z is planning to do a concert on top of the Ed Sullivan Theater marquee in Times Square on July 8, according to the New York Post. The paper reports that the performance will be part of Jay’s Late Show with David Letterman appearance and that “the rapper is close to obtaining the necessary approvals” for the spectacle. (Letterman tapes in the Sullivan Theater.)

In 2010, Jay had planned a similar performance with Eminem, but the mayor’s office prohibited it “over concerns about crowd control and security,” forcing the duo to move the event to the building’s rooftop. We’re not sure what is different this time around (big corporate backing?), but if it goes off according to plan, large chunks of Times Square will be shut down near Broadway and 53rd street.

The performance will come four days after the Samsung-sponsored release of Jay-Z’s newest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, and one day after the Nirvana and R.E.M.-sampling LP goes on sale to the general public.
