Rappers Jay-Z and Eminem will headline the first-ever concert at the new Yankee Stadium on Sept. 13.

“Yankee Stadium was built with this kind of mega-event in mind. It will undoubtedly be a memorable occasion for music fans around the world,” Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost said in a statement.

While this event will serve as the Stadium’s first official concert, Jay-Z previously performed at Yankee Stadium, singing his hit “Empire State of Mind” with Alicia Keys on October 29, 2009, prior to the Yankees’ 3-1 victory over the Phillies in Game 2 of the World Series.

The September 13 concert will be the second of a home-and-home series of shows for Brooklyn native Jay-Z and Eminem, who was raised in Detroit, as the pair will also perform at Comerica Park on September 2.

An announcement regarding the ticket on-sale date and ticket availability will be made in the near future.
