Released earlier this year, hip hop pioneer Jay-Z‘s latest, thirteenth, and intensely personal new album, 4:44, is being heralded as a modern classic, the MC’s greatest in years, and certainly one of the absolute best releases of 2017. In support of the new LP, Jay in currently in the midst of a massive North American area tour, which makes a rare Nashville stop tonight, Nov. 15 at Bridgestone Arena, the rapper’s first time in Music City since ’09, and only his second ever, not counting a headlining outing at nearby Bonnaroo in 2010. This also mark his first proper Nashville headliner, and his previous show was part of Vanderbilt’s Commodore Quake.
With support from buzzy rising talent Vic Mensa, this show is certainly a hot ticket, but compared to some Jay-Z runs in the past, a significant number of sites were priced pretty reasonably at the jump. Although some of those $6 StubHub deals that recently made headlines (and annoyed Jay-Z’s camp, who insist that the tour is doing well) have been all snatched up, plenty of official tickets remain as well, with upper sections priced below $30 (or, if you want to splurge, there are some pretty spectacular, pricier seats left too). It’s not often that one of the most prominent rappers of all time makes it to Nashville, so don’t sleep on this one.
Jay-Z and Vic Mensa will perform tonight, Nov. 15 at Bridgestone Arena. The show is all ages, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 6:30 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $29.50-175.50.
