TIDAL X BROOKLYN – BARCLAYS CENTER
Last week, us at Culture Mag reported a Jay-Z and Beyoncé headlined Hurricane benefit concert was going to be played The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Well, TIDAL X Brooklyn’s lineup has finally been released and it’s IMPRESSIVE.
Although Bey isn’t on the bill as we had previously thought, there are still plenty of other heavy-hitters worth catching. Names like Jay-Z, J.Lo, Chris Brown (kind of weird?), and Cardi B are making this an A1 event. The concert will take place on October 17 and will be streamed on TIDAL X.
To date, Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and now Maria have caused catastrophic damage to multiple places throughout the United States and the Caribbean. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced and left without shelter, food, and water. The concert has all net proceeds being donated to multiple disaster relief and recovery organizations. These organizations include Habitat for Humanity in Puerto Rico, Greater Houston Community Foundation, and more.
Jay-Z has been in the news for rumors of him turning down the upcoming SuperBowl 2018 half-time performance. To date, there were no official confirmations of this. Jay also dedicated his performance of “The Story of OJ” to Colin Kaepernick at the Meadows Music and Art Festival last month.
