The doors at New York’s Barclays Center will finally open up for business in the next few days setting even more anticipation for Jay-Z‘s Brooklyn Nets inaugural NBA season. The doors opened Friday (September 21) and Jay will hit the Barclays stage next week during its first concert series.
After decades without a professional sports team, New York City’s ascendant borough hit the major leagues again on Friday with the opening of the Brooklyn Nets’ new arena. The state-of-the-art, 18,000-seat arena will be officially christened Sept. 28 with a rap concert by Nets co-owner and native Brooklynite Jay-Z. Supporters cheered Friday as the lights were turned on during a ribbon-cutting ceremony. “This is going to send a loud and clear message that Brooklyn has arrived as a center of exciting entertainment, thrilling big time sports and thriving commerce,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told the crowd.
