Jay-Z and Eminem Yankee Stadium tickets and Jay-Z and Eminem Comerica Park Detroit, MI tickets are now on sale. The big news on the block is that Eminem and Jay-Z will perform together in Detroit, MI and in New York City this September. The new Yankee Stadium will see its first big concert on September 13th and in Detroit the concert will be at Comerica Park on September 2nd. Since Jay-Z’s hometown is New York City, he will be the headliner for the concert at Yankee Stadium. Detroit is Eminem’s hometown, which of course means he’ll be the headliner at Comerica Park. A second date has already been added in Detroit due to amazing interest in this concert tour.
Another interesting tidbit about this upcoming set of concerts is that the dynamic duo announced their ballpark concerts at the Tigers vs. Yankees game at Comerica Park on May 12, 2010. Eminem told the media that since this is a once-in-a-lifetime gig that they would really give it back to their respective hometowns. Jay-Z has mentioned in statements that they have so much love for their hometowns. He also said that they would stretch the hip hop music style to prove that it can be played to live audiences.
This is the first big concert for the New Yankee Stadium which opened up for the 2009 MLB season last April. The original Yankee Stadium which had often been referred to as the “Cathedral of Baseball” hosted many big names through the years such as U2, Pink Floyd and Billy Joel. Interest in the Jay-Z and Eminem concert in NYC is huge, this concert will be a total sell out. In addition to Eminem’s concert in 2005, Comerica Park has also hosted major recording acts like Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi and The Dave Matthews Band. In full-stage concerts Comerica Park fans are seated on the infield diamond and the stage is in the outfield grass. Rumor has it that Tigers players were displeased with the condition of the field after some of these concerts.
Eminem returned from a four year break in 2009 and these shows will be among the first shows he’s headlined in a very long time. His new album is called “Recovery” which will be released this month. Jay-Z who is married to Beyonce finished the United States portion of his BP3 2010 tour which is in support of his latest album named “The Blueprint 3.” Jay-Z did sing “Empire State of Mind” with Alicia Keys during the 2009 World Series at the New Yankee Stadium.
This concert tour will perhaps be the “Concert of 2010.” If you have a specific seat in mind, don’t delay in ordering your Jay-Z and Eminem tickets because if you wait they may be all gone!!!
