Jay-Z's 'Surprise' Concert Approved By Mayor Bloomberg

Mayor Bloomberg has given Jay-Z the stamp of approval on a not so surprise concert in the middle of Manhattan, July 8.

It will be his first concert since the release of his album Magna Carta Holy Grail, which is scheduled for general release on July 7, (July 4 to Samsung Galaxy users through the Magna Carta app).

Word is the concert will be on top of the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater right smack in the middle of Times Square.

Don't plan on driving anywhere near the area that day, as there is no telling how many people will occupy those streets that day.
