"Yankee Stadium was #EPIC last night. Performances by JayZ,Drake,Kanye West,Eminem,G-Unit,Dr.Dre,Nicki Minaj,B.O.B & Eminem all on one stage!" -ThisIsChi_JEG

"Apparently a Coldplay concert broke out in the middle of Jay-Z's Yankee Stadium set last night. Can safely say no one saw that coming." -BarthDoesThings

"I've been trying to find a word to explain the Jay-Z/Eminem Yankee Stadium show.. I got it.. WOW!!!!!" -DJCK_BROOKLYN

Jay-Z & Chris Martin on stage @ Yankee Stadium
Jay-Z & Chris Martin

Jay-Z and Eminem tore down Yankee Stadium last night (9/13), the first of TWO shows that the pair of MCs will play in the Bronx. And there were guests... Kanye was present. Chris Martin of Coldplay dropped in. Beyonce had her say. Dr Dre was there. 50 Cent too. Not to mention Drake, Nicky Minaj, D12, B.O.B, Swizz Beatz, Lloyd Banks, and many others.

"The concert lasted well past midnight, and a few thousand in the crowd started to make their way to the exits while Jay-Z was still rapping to beat the after-concert rush. But most stayed behind, sensing what Jay-Z told them. ''This is historic: They ain't never gonna be another night like tonight.''

Well, maybe one more night -- the pair has another show at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday." [NY Times]

After the show, Jigga, Mrs Hova, and guests headed down to the 40/40 Club for a nightcap.

The madness continues tonight (9/14) at Yankee Stadium. A bunch of videos and both setlists (with guests listed) from last night, below...

It looks like a lot of music, im sure they played 2 minutes of every song. And come on, they play twice a year, they should put on a show.

Posted by Rob | September 14, 2010 1:10 PM

"epic" "tore down Yankee Stadium" "madness"

SMH, when will the madness of you absolute over hyping jackasses stop?

You should be tortured in the worst possible way for referring to a hip hop show in a giant baseball stadium using these words.

Oh and to the other idiots going on and on about the killer set lists. You do realize they don't play any of these songs fully, right?

OMG Eminem did a minute and a half of "My Name is" Insane Holy Shit.

holy amazing......... wow!

'rap sucks', ... wow. what time portal / state did you crawl from. you are embarrassing yourself shh.

also... rap is a vocal style / delivery, not a genre of music. hip-hop often features rap. so do alot of other genres...

How could people frown at this set?
People just want to sit at home, stir their hummus with their fingers, and talk about how music sucks.

Posted by John Oatess | September 14, 2010 1:12 PM

32 tracks from eminem and 37 from jay-z

i'm sorry, even if they aren't all full tracks, that is still a hell of a lot of music.

my guess is that nas shows up tonight.

i dont really agree with everything else youre saying, but this is true. on paper the show looks to be 5 hours long but that is definitely not the case

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2010 1:36 PM

Jesus. These two may have fallen off years ago, but kudos to them for making a mainstream rap show at a baseball stadium into anything other than an embarassing clusterfuck. It looks like they actually really threw together a spectacular event.

Unreal is all I can say about this show. Blew me away. I was with my girl in centerfield watching my boys Jigga and EM on the video screens. Like YouTube at home only bigger yo! I'm going again tonight cause you know they are just gonna flip that shit up. Like the second verse of Big Pimpin tonight instead of just the first that they did last night.

Hate on me. You all jealous

Yeah, that mostly white suburban crowd surpised him. I remember seeing clouds after clouds of ganja smoke rising from the crowd during his 2 songs w/Phish.
I'll give it to the phish fans, they do know how to get down.

Call me crazy, but I like music where people sing and play real instruments. But I'm just a simple caveman. Your overly repetitive beats and samples and angry shouting, and inability to speak the English language properly frightens me. Now, you don't even have to rhyme when you rap. If you can't think of a word that rhymes, who cares? Make up a word. The people who buy your records don't care. If they cared, they would be listening to music where people sing and play instruments.

let's face it...

live rap and/or hip-hop is a joke.


Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2010 4:18 PM

Are you people really this close-minded? If something's not to your liking than it must be 'bad'? I was at the show last night and it was an experience unlike any other I've had at a show--and I've been to a lot of shows. It wasn't the best show I've ever seen, but it was great nonetheless. Everyone who stepped on that stage last night was an exceptional performer. As someone who is more a fan of the aforementioned 'people who sing and play real instruments' genre, it's fine that hip hop is not your thing, however, it's pretty intolerant to label it as 'bad' because you don't like it.

Oh, and as an unnecessary aside, both acts had full band playing the 'real instruments' of which you are so fond.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2010 4:38 PM

Everyone who is sitting here hating on this and ESPECIALLY RAP all are hunched over at their computers at their crappy jobs wishing they could do something cool.

You are just haters plain and simple.

The Coldplay guy? Really?

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2010 4:54 PM

All I'm gonna say about this concert is 3 simple facts:

1. JZ is rap music for bottle service clubs and sucks.
2. Eminem is over and his novelty has worn out. Also sucks.
3. Hummus makes for a delicious late afternoon snack, and doesn't suck.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2010 6:06 PM

How is eminem over, he's coming back stronger now, he's one of the most talented artist out there.

Posted by Hannah H | September 14, 2010 8:14 PM

is that what happens when your career is over-you play Yankee Stadium?

Posted by matt | September 14, 2010 9:34 PM

Surprisingly, Coldplay guy and the Mrs. and Jay-Z and Mrs. have been BFFs for several years, so it's not so surprising he was there...

how much is hummus at new stadium?

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 12:04 AM

Hummus is seriously overpriced at the new stadium. $6.50 for a small container, and the pita triangles are an extra 50 cent.

Just got back from tonight's show. Don't think there was one person having a bad time there. Same guests as last night minus Chris Martin plus Swizz Beatz and Mary J. Blige.

Posted by Nikhil | September 15, 2010 9:43 AM

Just to clear things up.. This show lasted 5 hours. It was EPIC! They both were amazing. This was the best concert that I have ever been to...

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 11:23 AM

It was an epic night. No, not the greatest show ever but it was definitely one of the the most fun. I do understand the not doing full songs. But if there was one classic that should've been finished it should've been "Stan" I got a little choked up when it started playing. People listening to the lyrics for the first time don't know that Stan dies at the end. In the setlist, you forgot Jay-Z's "Lost+" verse over the "clocks" instrumental.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 11:36 AM

1:19 said it well. Saying that the conversation on whether hip-hop is good or not ended in 2004, cause two of the best albums in the genre came out that year: "The College Dropout" by Kanye & "The Tipping Point" by The Roots.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 11:43 AM

i dont go to hip hop shows so forgive my ignorance. what's the reasoning behind the entire song not being played?

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 12:17 PM

the reasoning is this imo: sadly, the vast majority of people that go to these shows are not music-lovers, they don't appreciate music with more thought behind it, and thus have a very short attention-span as they're just into whatever they hear on Z100/Hot 97 etc. So you have to keep the show moving b/c otherwise the audience will get bored real quick.

Add in that most commercial rappers have no idea how to really perform live & entertain and dont put much thought into their "shows" (Jay-Z is def. excluded from this), and you have rappers who can't be bothered to remember all the verses to their songs. This is why live hip hop sucks most of the time.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 3:35 PM

If you need to say something is "historic", it's not historic. It's cool that everyone there had a good time. I had a good time as well. But "historic"? Give me a break.

"Everyone who stepped on that stage last night was an exceptional performer."

Nicky Minaj is awful.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 3:45 PM

LMAO HUMMUS.

I'm pretty sure they don't play 'full songs' because most of their songs are exceptionally long, and it tends to keep the crowds interest peaked when they switch it up live. Anyway, I really enjoyed how they did it last nite. For everyone saying they didn't know what they were doing... fck yerself. It was fucking historic.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 7:01 PM

Whoever said Eminem is over must have a handicap.

Clearly he's over, it's not like 'Love the Way You Lie' was #1 for months, or Recovery was #1 for months. Definitely not like it's still up at the very top or anything.
