Rapper Jay-Z is to celebrate the release of his upcoming album, The Blueprint 3, with a special gig at Madison Square Garden on September 11.
The show will serve as a benefit for the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund, a charity set up in 1985 to support the families of police officers and firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
“This charity and concert encompass the true spirit of New York City,” said the rapper. “We are asking everyone to ‘answer the call’ and support and honor the families of those that lost their lives in the line of duty. There was true camaraderie and resiliency that this city showed the world in 2001, and we continue that today by taking care of our own.”
Ticket info will be released soon.
