The acts were hot, the stage was hot, and the caliber of performance was electric last night as Jay-Z and Eminem performed the first music event ever at Bronx's new Yankee Stadium. Just as the last rain clouds gave way to a clear night, the concert opened to 50,000 plus screaming fans who locked their attention to the stage.
Fans got more than they bargained for when unannounced guests took the stage one after the other. The four hour cavalcade of stars started with Hip-Hop newbies B.o.B and J. Cole who warmed up the stage before Eminem took over at 8:35 for a 90 minute set.
Eminem appeared in all black and performed 'Won't Back Down' and '3 A.M.' from his latest albums Recovery and Relapse. Later he had the crowd chanting, 'Free Lil Wayne' as he performed the Weezy duet 'No Love' before segueing into what could be called a performance of his greatest hits.
