Jay-Z To Perform At Festival
Rapper Jay-Z will make his U.S. festival debut at the 2009 All Points West Music & Arts Festival, to be held July 31-Aug. 2 at Liberty State Park in New Jersey, just across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan.
All Points West organizers have tapped Jay-Z to replace previous opening night headliner the Beastie Boys, whose member Adam “MCA” Yauch was recently diagnosed with cancer and will undergo surgery. The band was also forced to cancel other summer tour dates and delayed the release of its forthcoming album, “Hot Sauce Committee Part 1.”
In light of the Beastie Boys’ cancellation, All Points West organizers are offering refunds at point of purchase for July 31 single-day tickets only, according to a news release.
