Jay-Z Is Planning A Concert That Will Shut Down Times Square Because He Can

The New York Post is reporting that Jay-Z is planning a concert on top of the Ed Sullivan Theater that according to them will "turn rush-hour Times Square into a gigantic street party." The performance will go down on July 8 and be apart of Jay's appearance on Late Show With David Letterman. Jay previously tried to pull this stunt in the summer 2010 but the city shut it down over security concerns. 

“If he gets permission from the mayor’s office, it’s going to be off the hook,” said a law-enforcement source, to the Post. “They’ll have to shut down Broadway around the Letterman building. They’ll have to have a strong police presence. It’s going to be chaos with so many fans.”

However, their source claimed the show will likely go down as planned.

Jay's next album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, will be released on July 4.
