Jay-Z

Jay-Z, who already owns a portion of the Brooklyn Nets, has now also been named a director at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, where the Nets will be playing and he will also be performing. NY Post reports:

As one of seven directors, the rapper and music mogul will attend board meetings and help direct arena senior staff on daily operations, Barclays Center officials confirmed today.

He's already helped the Nets design the team's Brooklyn logos and its yet-to-be-released jerseys. And he was especially hands-on in designing 11 luxury arena suites called "The Vault."

For the suites -- which run $550,000 each -- Jay-Z's fingerprints are everywhere. He even helped choose the high-end forks, napkins and champagne that will be served.

In related news, another show was added to the list of shows happening at the venue. Journey will bring their tour with Pat Benatar and Loverboy to Barclays Center on October 30. Tickets for that show went on sale today at 10 AM. For those who are interested, Journey also plays Jones Beach on August 10.

All Journey dates are listed below...

Is this thing really going to open anytime soon? I walk by the arena about once a week and it looks more like a finished building than ever, but I can't believe this thing will be ready to hold 18,000 people by the end of the summer.

$145 to see Journey, with a replacement singer, in the year 2012, in Brooklyn, in the middle of a recession? I'm not sure what that's a sign of, but it can't be good.

Looking forward to Loverboy though!

1:01, yes you are correct. The singer was in a Journey cover band in the Philippines. He's the second most famous person in that country (next to Manny Pacquaio).

Grape side instead of water in the toilets.

What's even better than Journey touring with a cover band singer, is that Foreigner is currently touring with zero (0) original members. True story.

His nets share is 3%

Posted by me | June 17, 2012 4:53 AM

He owns roughly one-sixth of one percent, or basically $219,000 worth of the Nets. 3% ... pshaw bro.
