The rap legend is playing a private concert for Tidal users, featuring a number of songs that have never been played live, or haven’t been played in decades. The B-Sides concert will be the first exclusive show performed by Jay Z for Tidal, and will take place in New York on May 13th in an undisclosed venue. The concert will also be live-streamed through Tidal.
t was only a matter of time before Jay Z put on a concert in support of his newest endeavor. While Tidal hasn’t gotten off to the fastest start under its new ownership, Jay Z made it clear earlier this week that Tidal is “here for the long haul.” To get a ticket for the concert, Tidal users must create and tweet a playlist using the hashtag #TIDALXJAYZbefore the May 8th deadline. Winners will be chosen based on sequencing and the diversity of artists and genres in their playlists.
