With Ryan Gosling as host, Jay brought out Damien Marley to perform the evening’s first song BAM. Donning a custom Colin Kaepernick jersey, with an Army fatigue backdrop accented by red stage lighting , the two along with Jay’s longtime DJ Young Guru brought the crowd to its feet.

For his final song, JAY- Z performed the title track from his 13th studio. Losing the elaborate stage set up from before, Jay stood before a mic and recited the confessional words of his philandering ways.

JAY-Z will hit the road in a 31-city tour across the country kicking off Oct. 27 in Anaheim, CA and hit major cities including Atlanta, Toronto, Dallas, Las Vegas, Chicago and Brooklyn. JAY Z will wrap up his tour just before the holidays on Dec. 21 at The Forum.
