Nas Announces Exclusive Show @ Radio City Music Hall on NYE
Tickets Go On Sale this Friday, September 14th at Noon
"There is no better place for me to spend New Year’s Eve than New York City, and there aren't many better places to perform in this world than Radio City." -Nas
Following the release of his best-selling #1 new album Life Is Good, and a standout performance on this year’s Rock the Bells tour, hip-hop’s most influential MC has announced an exclusive show at Radio City Music Hall on New Year’s Eve. Fans can purchase tickets beginning this Friday, September 14th at noon- the same day Nas will be celebrating his 39th birthday. Elle Varner has been confirmed as support. Doors for the concert will open at 9pm.
Nas’s new album, Life Is Good, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album charts (selling 149,000 copies in its first week), marking the sixth #1 album that the artist has produced during his career. The collection has received rave reviews from critics and fans alike including from The New York Times who raved, “A simulacrum of the sound that made him legendary, capturing Nas in his vintage prime without coming off as anachronistic. Life Is Good would probably have been among the best hip-hop albums of 1993 and, as it happens, is likely to be one of the best hip-hop albums of 2012,â€ from Rolling Stone who noted, “The Queens rap godfather spits vicious rhymes over a rugged, island flavored beat,â€ and from The Los Angeles Times who said, “On Life Is Good, the rapper known for his sharp wit and biting social commentary taps into one of his most honest and compelling subject matters yet: himself.â€
