Jay-Z at Barclays Center - 9/29/12 (via Alyonka Larionov)
Jay-Z

Jay-Z kicked off his first of eight sold-out shows at Brooklyn's new Barclays Center on Friday (9/28) and has since played his second (9/29) and third (9/30) nights over the weekend. Though Jay said there would be no guests at these shows, he's still been sneaking a few in. As mentioned, Big Daddy Kane was there on night one. Memphis Bleek showed up on Saturday to join him on "Can't Knock the Hustle," "Money Ain't A Thang," "La La La," "Excuse Me Miss," and "You Me, Him & Her." (No guests on night three though.) The setlist was otherwise pretty similar to night one, including a large span of material; everything from Cruel Summer standout "Clique," to his earliest cuts like "Dead Presidents" and huge hits like "Dirt Off Your Shoulder," "99 Problems," "H to the Izzo," "Hard Knock Life," and more.

The run continues tonight (10/1). Videos from Saturday's show are below.

I was there friday night for the opening..
jay-z killed it.. the crowd was great..im happy i was able to attend this historic event BUT

there were many problems throughout the night in the arena.. the lines to walk through the metal dectectors took over an hour...people had to empty all there pockets and take out there belts, etc .the escalators going up to 200 level were not working .. the conseesion stand lines were impossible ..many lines were so long they was blocking the people walking up the escalators . most of the 200 level consession stands ran out of beer just as show was about to start...
i hope they corrected these issues.. im going again tonight :)

I'm laughing at the frowny baby in the picture and all of the people who take him and his band seriously.
