Jay-Z & Eminem's Roof Top Concert

Last week rumors swirled that a secret Jay-Z concert would take place on Monday in New York City. Eventually details were revealed that Jay-Z and special guest Eminem would appear together on The Late Show with David Letterman, performing atop the show's famous marquee on Broadway in Times Square. After word of the free concert leaked, Mayor Mike Bloomberg pulled the plug on the vent, citing the near-riot that greeted Drake's recent outdoor show on New York's waterfront. As a surprise late Monday afternoon, Eminem and Jay-Z suddenly appeared on the rooftop of the Ed Sullivan Theater to perform their set for "The Late Show with David Letterman."
Eminem performed "Not Afraid" and Jay-Z hit the stage with "On To The Next One". They then performed their duet "Renegade." The audience, which included New York's own P. Diddy, cheered as David Letterman appeared to thank Em and Jay before the three walked off stage and out of sight. The surprise set served as a preview for the upcoming double-bill shows Eminem and Jay-Z are performing this September at Tiger Stadium in Detroit and Yankee Stadium in The Bronx.
