Going to D.C. for Obama’s Inauguration? Jay-Z Will Be…

Jay-Z announced today that he’s holding a ONE NIGHT ONLY CONCERT at Washington, D.C.’s Warner Theater on Jan. 19. Tickets for “An Evening with Jay-Z in Concert on The Eve of Change,“wil be available on Friday, January 9, 2009 at 10:00 am via Warner Theatre box office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at LiveNation.com or charge-by-phone at the following numbers; 703-573-SEAT, 202-397-SEAT, 410-547-SEAT, 800-551-SEAT.

Sounds like a recast of the most awesome Jay-Z concert I’ve ever attended- his Sinatra-esque one night performance of Reasonable Doubt at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall. It was amazing- he drove onto the stage in a white 1996 Lexus and stepped out in an all white tux backed by an insanely robust orchestra, helmed by ?uestlove. I will never forget that night- word to Bundy. He was in the house as well.

What am I saying with that story? No matter how many times Hov makes money semi-inappropriately from a monumental occasion with a concert- he’s 98% worth it each time…GET THOSE TICKETS!!!

    Jay-Z…Why Bruh? I’m in Chocolate City, and I’m pissed! The minute that I heard about this concert yesterday, I just knew that I was going because I can’t afford to go to all the other Thousand Dollar Balls that are going on in the city. Especially the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball With Russy, Jeezy, TI, & Ladies Love (those tix are $500-$2500), but I digress. To my surprise, I just checked TicketMaster and these Jay-Z tix are $375-$1000! WTF? All the young adults that stood in line for hours at the polls can’t even party on Obama’s behalf cause all the ticket prices are ridiculous! Where are we supposed to party and get it in at? 🙁

    He is also going to be at D.C.’s premier luxury nightclub, LOVE, on the 16th, and that’s only $50. But every weekend, LOVE is packed with wankstas that just wanna be seen with a Moet bottle in their hand. It’s always packed like sardines, and if it’s a special occasion, just prepare to sweat out your weave ladies!
