Grammy Award-winning icons JAY-Z and EMINEM rock the New York City skyline when they perform together on the roof of the Ed Sullivan Theater building on LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, taped Monday, June 21 to be broadcast Friday, June 25 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
“Over the years, the Ed Sullivan Theater Building is the site of historic musical performances,” Letterman said during the show’s taping. “The Beatles…the Rolling Stones – anybody who is anybody has performed on this stage, and we’ve been lucky enough to…to continue that tradition.”
EMINEM and JAY-Z perform three songs during their set, which takes place 13 stories high, 140 feet above Manhattan. Besides performing, JAY-Z also appears as the show’s lead guest, and EMINEM presents the “Top Ten EMINEM Pieces of Advice for the Kids.”
The musicians’ LATE SHOW appearance comes in anticipation of their historic, co-headlining two-stop tour, “Home and Home,” produced by Live Nation, at Comerica Park in Detroit on September 2 and at Yankee Stadium in New York on September 13. Tickets for those two shows go on sale Friday, June 25 at 10 AM, ET at LiveNation.com.
