BBC Northern Ireland: Across the Line
“He’s one of the best showmen Oxegen has ever welcomed, and certainly graced with the most impressive flow Punchestown has or ever will witness.”

Niall Byrne,
“About 30 songs are crammed in over 100 minutes or so. Jay-Z live is the ultimate rap showman. He’s untouchable yet he’s with us all the way, right there thankful, grateful and supportive to the audience.”

Karen Lambe, Heineken Music
“Effortlessley cool he launched straight into what would be a killer set, with tracks like ’99 Problems’ sending the crowd wild.”

Kevin O’Neill, Bull Black Nova
“Despite appearing on stage about half an hour later than advertised, Jay-Z thrilled the crowd from start to finish. Effortlessly cool, the huge crowd (easily the biggest I saw in the two days I was at the festival) were captivated by his every move, every word.”
