After the New York Yankess advanced to the World Series and it was announced that Jay-Z and Alicia Keys would be performing “Empire State of Mind” for the opening game, Columbus fans were left wondering if they would be left out in the cold. Opening night of the World Series is Wednesday, October 28th; the same night as the highly promoted, much anticipated Jay-Z Tour at the Schottenstein’s Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Well, after much speculation, it was recently announced that Jay-Z will be performing in Columbus on Wednesday night and pushing back the World Series Performance to Game 2, taking place on Thursday, October 29th in NYC.

Originally, Jay-Z was said to be doing both performances- Taking the field at the World Series and then flying a private jet from NYC to Columbus in time to take the stage but that plan has changed. Local online publication “The Lantern” spoke directly with John Vlautin from Live Nation Worldwide, Inc., the company representing Jay-Z. Vlautin told the website that Jay-Z will be performing in Columbus on Wednesday and, depending on the weather, he will be performing in New York on Thursday.

But wait, Jay-Z…. Don’t you have a show in LONDON, ONTARIO on Thursday at the John Labatt Centre!!!

– Via MTV.com: Fans will have to wait an extra day to catch Jay-Z and Alicia Keys teaming up for a performance of their Big Apple anthem, “Empire State of Mind,” at the World Series. It was announced on Tuesday (October 27) that the duo will now be performing their ode to NYC before the game’s first pitch on Thursday instead of Wednesday, as originally planned, when the Yankees play the Phillies in the Series.

“The performance was changed due to the forecast for inclement weather for Wednesday, October 28,” a joint statement from Jay-Z and Major League Baseball reads. “Staging for the performance could adversely impact the field if it is wet, creating damaged and unsafe playing conditions.

So, Columbus, thank GOODNESS there is inclement weather headed to New York City because, if not, Jay-Z probably would’ve canceled or been on MAJOR C.P. time for the show here in the capital city.

I read this story on allhiphop.com (a rumor actually), but it was ineresting.  Though I would share some Hip-Hop news…

I could be wrong, but it seems like The Game has been rather quiet recently, but I am hearing a recent interview might changed that and put him head to head with the biggest thing in rap. No, not Lil Wayne, young bucks. I’m talking about Jay-Z. Do you remember the story I offered you on my blog? [Click here for the classic Jay-Z story.] Well, my boy JP finally met Jay and said he didn’t know anything to say to Jigga so he just asked him about The Game. I cannot verify, but JP said he said, “When you gonna go at The Game” and Jay just laughed and said, “We ain’t even f**kin with him…we gonna let him commit suicide.” At this time, The Game was on magazine covers with a gun to his head and talking a lot about suicide and stuff. I heard that this story has gone from JP to illseed to The Game and The Game is really mad. So, now I sort of believe The Game’s new song “Superman,” clearly a Soulja Boy diss is also a slight at Jay-Z. Remember, on Kingdom Come, Jay-Z was rapping as Superman returning to save Hip-Hop. We’ll see!
