The Jay-Z concert was amazing. It kicked off the with the Color Guard, the pledge of allegiance and the Star Spangled Banner. I have never been to a concert that featured the pledge, much less a rap show. It was pretty impressive.
Jay said “8 yrs ago, terrorist took down our towers, they believed that it would weaken us, they were sadly mistaken” and that we run this town, no one else. And then he played his song “Run this town” and the crowd went berserk.
Lots of guest-stars including John Mayer, Rhianna, that idiot Kanye (who did perform two of my favorite songs “Can’t tell me nothing” and “Good life” but can never be forgiven for what he did to Taylor Swift last night), Mary J. Blige, Pharrell and P.Diddy. Oh and of course Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce who, surprisingly, only performed for about 30 seconds. I couldn’t get a good shot of her, that girl MOVES.
Anyway, a fantastic show, an impressive performance by Jay-Z, and all around a great way to commemorate 9/11 8-years later. We remember you.
