It was recently reported that Jay-Z and Beyonce would be playing a hurricane relief benefit concert on October 17 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Now it's officially announced, and while Beyonce isn't actually part of the lineup, many other great artists are. It's the third annual TIDAL X charity concert, and it includes Cardi B, DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, A$AP Ferg, Vic Mensa, Joey Bada$$, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Princess Nokia, Tee Grizzley, Rapsody, Chloe x Halle and still more (full lineup below). Appearances by Rosie Perez (Do the Right Thing, White Men Can't Jump) and Lin Manuel-Miranda (Hamilton) are also promised, and Angie Martinez is hosting. Tickets are on sale now.
Jay-Z is also touring with Vic Mensa, including two Barclays Center shows in November and a Nassau Coliseum show in December (tickets). Vic Mensa also plays a TIDAL-presented hurricane relief benefit in NYC this Saturday (9/30) and that will stream live on TIDAL.
