Jay-Z Goes Back To School

LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Jay-Z, one of the most powerful voices in music today, a multiple Grammy Award winner and influencer that has resonated with a generation of music fans, is officially announcing his fall tour. With 21 dates confirmed, the tour will make stops at a mix of
college campus arenas and traditional venues across North America starting at Penn State University on
October 9th.

Prior to the tour kickoff, Jay-Z will hold a charity concert at New York’s legendary Madison Square
Garden on Friday, September 11th in support of the New York Police & Fire Widows and Children’s
Benefit Fund. For this live event, 100% of the proceeds from tickets sales and concert merchandise will
go directly to the charity.
