Brett Yormark, the CEO of BSE Global, which is the company that manages programming, sales, and other operations for Webster, shared they wanted a "world-famous New York City icon” to re-open the venue. “No one fits that description better than JAY-Z, who will join an unparalleled list of celebrated performers who have played Webster Hall,” Yormark said in a statement.

Tickets for the event are set to go on sale to the general public on April 19. More info here.
