Jay-Z Show Interrupted by Fire Department

Jay-Z played an special show hosted by MySpace and DJ Hero in NYC’s Blender Theatre last night (September 9), but surprisingly his performance was stopped by the fire department.

According to Rolling Stone, about an hour into his set, Hov was abruptly interrupted as a fire alarm mysteriously went off. Members of the fire department came into the venue finding no sign of trouble. Jigga returned to the stage minutes later, undeterred by the brief interlude.

The rap superstar extended his 45 minute set an extra 30 minutes going through a slew of his hits like, “Heart of the City,” “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” “I Just Wanna Love You (Give It To Me)” and “Dirt Off Your Shoulder,” as well as cuts from his recently released Blueprint 3 album.

As previously reported, Jay is set to play a sold out performance tomorrow (September 11) at Madison Square Garden. The $54.50 tickets to the concert, which is a benefit for the New York Police and Fire Widows and Children’s Benefit Fund, were quickly scooped up by scalpers who are now reselling seats for up to $45,000.

Jay was understandably saddened with news of the scam. “We are truly disheartened that certain individuals would choose to benefit from what is meant to be a 100% charitable event,” Jay said in a statement. “We do not support any profits made from reselling any ticket that was meant to be purchased by honest fans.” –Elan Mancini
