Jay-Z named director of Barclays Center (where Journey is playing w/ Pat Benatar)

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.
