Hosted in partnership with Tiffany & Co., the concert will at the Louis Vuitton Foundation Auditorium. Tickets are currently listed at $153.77 online.
“To coincide with the Basquiat x Warhol. Painting Four Hands exhibition, JAY-Z will give a celebratory concert to pay tribute to Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, on Friday 14 April 2023 at 9 pm, in the Fondation’s Auditorium,” the concert’s description reads.
Jay-Z has not toured since 2018 with his wife, Beyoncé. Most recently he performed a lengthy verse from DJ Khaled’s “God Did” at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
“I thought about it, I was in my head and I just broke down and said, ‘You know, it’s a four-minute verse.’ Again, for the culture, for hip-hop, we got to do that,” he told TIDAL after delivering the performance.
“This ain’t your traditional song. … It’s not your traditional structure of what you think a song that would be nominated for Song of the Year would sound like. It’s not what you expect. And for the culture and for hip-hop, we got to do that.”
