Twenty-Sixteen has certainly been a busy year for Beyonce and Jay Z. Now the power couple is reportedly planning a massive Tidal concert with poverty-fighting organization The Robin Hood Foundation in New York.
The New York Post reports, Queen Bey and Jay Z will be on hand to perform along with a stacked roster of notable artist including Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill and Lil Wayne. With this being presented by the Knowles-Carters, the event will be at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, which Jay Z helped build. And if you don’t plan to travel to Brooklyn, no worries, the event will be streamed on the Tidal app.
Reportedly, tickets will begin at $50 and will go as high as $100,000 for VIP packages. Proceeds will assist Robin Hood’s education efforts in New York City and for other charities that the artist will name in the future.
Jay Z and Beyonce are regular supporters of charity music shows including the popular Made in America festival and Global Citizen. It was recently announced that Hov would perform at the first Global Citizen Festival in Mumbai, India on November 19. He will be joined by his good friends at Coldplay and some top Bollywood stars.
The couple has been making headlines following the release of Beyonce’s visual album for “Lemonade,” as many of the lyrics on the album appeared to imply that Jay Z had been unfaithful, but they had worked through their problems.
Infamous for their discretions, the pair never spoke out to address the speculation, but rumors have circulated that the tandem would respond on a joint album that would be released on Tidal.
Recently, Jay Z narrated a thought-provoking animated short film that condemned The War on Drugs. The film was lauded by former presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders.
The upcoming charity concert will be live-streamed on Tidal Oct. 15.
