“We are thrilled to welcome a world-renowned artist like JAY Z back to his home away from home in South Florida – the BB&T Center,” said Sunrise Sports & Entertainment President Michael R. Yormark. “Coming off an incredible stadium tour and with an amazing new album, I’m sure JAY Z’s only Florida appearance on Jan. 2 will be an evening to remember for every single one of our guests.”

JAY Z, who in summer 2013 released the now double platinum Magna Carta… Holy Grail, wrapped the sold out “Legends Of The Summer” stadium tour with Justin Timberlake and over Labor Day, oversaw his second annual Budweiser Made In America festival; both to rave reviews.

Shawn Carter, also known as Jay Z, brought the “Legends of Summer” tour to Miami Aug. 16, amid rumors that he was boycotting Florida because of its Stand Your Ground laws.

The set list from the opening show in London Oct. 3 featured 24 tracks included Holy Grail, Tom Ford, Run this Town and Empire State of Mind. The tour ends Jan 31.

Tickets for the show are available through ticketmaster.com, at any Ticketmaster outlet, by phone, 800-745-3000, or at the BB&T Center box office during regular business hours.
