*Jay-Z will perform at Radio City Music Hall tomorrow night as the opening act for the World Basketball Festival, a four-day celebration of the performance and culture of the international sport.
Every two years, event organizer Nike hosts the world’s best basketball teams and top musical performers.
Jay-Z’s set will follow an on-court appearance by the 15 finalists for the U.S. team that is training in New York before the world championships.
The teams from France, Brazil and China are also part of the festival, which includes appearances around the city before an exhibition doubleheader Sunday at Madison Square Garden. The Americans will face the French before China meets Brazil.
