Jay Z Will Bring TIDAL More Exposure by Performing Special B-Sides Concert
TIDAL[/caption]Since the March launch of Jay Z’s digital streaming service TIDAL, the brand has delivered on its promise to provide exclusive videos and songs from artists including Beyonce, Rihanna and Madonna. Now Hov is giving TIDAL users the ultimate fan experience with a special B-Sides concert.
Jay Z will perform the songs from his catalog that have rarely been showcased on May 13 as part of the TIDAL X program, which provides fans with an opportunity to connect with their favorite artists in an unlimited number of ways. The Brooklyn MC will take the stage at an intimate location in New York City. Think tracks like "Cashmere Thoughts" from Reasonable Doubt, "Reservoir Dogs" off Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life and "Hola' Hovito" featured on The Blueprint, among others.
A TIDAL press release on Wednesday (April 29) confirms Jay would be "performing selections that have never been or not performed live in a decade." This gives true fans the show they have been longing for. In an innovative move and ode to fan appreciation, the Roc Nation boss is allowing TIDAL users to create and submit a playlist featuring an array of artists to win tickets to the concert.
If you are already subscribed to TIDAL, you can begin submitting playlists on April 29 through May 8. The show can be viewed exclusively as a live stream on TIDAL.com.
