Hova sure knows how to bring his friends along for a good time. A few weeks ago, Jay Z-owned music streaming service, Tidal, announced its first-ever benefit concert supporting New World Fund which will take place on October 20th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. And boy, what a lineup it includes. A few of the artists that will be performing include Mr. Jay Z himself, Beyonce, Prince, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and many more.
Tickets for the event on StubHub are currently starting at $80. StubHub is proud to lend its support to this important event/cause and has committed to donating 100% of fees* it collects on transactions for the Tidal X to the New World Foundation. These funds will be administrated by the New World Foundation and will be distributed among various nonprofit organizations and grassroots movements dedicated to improving communities and fighting systemic and social injustices.
StubHub believes deeply in using the power of live event experiences to transform lives in many ways. Benefit concerts are a powerful means of shining a spotlight and directing vital funding to important causes. In fact, to date StubHub has donated more than $1.5 million in support of charity benefit events like Tidal X, on top of nearly $2 million donated by the StubHub Foundation (a corporate advised fund of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation) since 2012 to organizations improving access and opportunity for disadvantaged youth through sports and arts education.
*Donated fees are calculated as follows: net buy fees + net sell fees, excluding ticket cancelations.
