Rapper and singer turn up at Emirates Stadium for game against Manchester United
The Premier League game took place at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and ended 1-1 after Robin Van Persie equalised from the penalty spot after Theo Walcott had opened the scoring for the home side. The pair kept a low profile throughout the match with Jay-Z wearing a hood throughout. Martin’s son Moses was also at the match but the pair’s wives Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé were nowhere to be seen.
Jay-Z has recently expanded his interest in sports in America with the creation of Roc Nation Sports, which has already acquired its first client; baseball star Robinson Canó. Roc Nation Sports was created with Roc Nation president Juan Perez and the Creative Artists Agency. Jay-Z subsequently sold his shares in the New Jersey Nets basketball team as part of the regulations involved in being a sports agent.
Meanwhile, Coldplay headlined a concert at The Emirates in 2012. The band headlined the London venue as part of their ‘Mylo Xyloto’ world tour and later performed with Jay-Z at the closing ceremony of the Paralympics.
