TIDAL To Stage Huge Charity Concert / Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, & More To Perform

Published: Friday 16th Sep 2016 by Sam

TIDAL may not have the most vast audience, but there’s no rivalling their roster of major names.

And next month many of them – including ‘Feeling Myself’ collaborators Beyonce and Nicki Minaj – will take to the stage for a special charity concert.

Full story below…

Per Page Six, the extravaganza will take place on October 15th at the Barclays Center and will also featuring showings from Jay Z, Lauryn Hill, and Lil Wayne.

Proceeds from tickets, the cost of which start at $50 and climb up to $100,000 for select VIP packages, will go to a number of charities including Robin Hood Foundation – which aims to end poverty in New York.

Also set to be streamed on TIDAL, the event will also see proceeds go to causes close to the hearts of performers on the night.


Say what folk will of the streaming platform, it’s definitely holding true to one of its initial promises – which was to provide compelling experiences for fans beyond just music.

Roll on October 15th!

    This app is p*ssing me off! It freezes too much then it’ll automatically close out. It’ll also cause your device to start acting up too. Tech support is sh*t!

      • B. Hill September 16, 2016

    I hope Nicki performs some new material. I also enjoy watching Bey & Hov perform together. Lil Wayne will be good as hell. I’m not sure about Ms Hill.

  3. Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 16, 2016

    They better tell Ms Hill that the concert starts by 5pm (even tho it starts by 9pm)…we all know how she likes to be late.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 September 16, 2016

      Don’t worry! I’m sure Beyonce and her Parkwood production team will be apart and overseeing this ENTIRE concert so everything including time in attendance won’t be an issue.

  4. Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 16, 2016

    Excited!!!!! can’t wait to watch it….and its good that it is for charity too.

  5. The Thot You’ll Never Be September 16, 2016

    This niqqa @LilWayne announced his retirement back in 2012….. ok let’s forget that one
    He just announced this a few days ago

  6. pat September 16, 2016

    throwing a hail mary now….times r rough…poor tidal

  7. kii September 16, 2016

    Wait so tidal reported a $28 Million dollar financial loss yet they still have money to host charity events which are not benefiting them financially

    • HailLegendBeysus September 16, 2016

      That report was for 2015.

  8. fatusankoh September 16, 2016

    Good I can’t wait

    TIDAL WILL HAVE TO COME HARDER!! WHERE IS THE MARKETING PEOPLE? This is a great start but they will need more events like this. What about summer festivals world wide, college tours? There’s way too much start power to not use it. i say at least 4 concerts a year. Up and coming artist will love it as well as artist who dont have as much buzz! It will also generate more exclusives.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 September 16, 2016

      I agree! Honestly it’s hard to get all those artist on one page epically touring considering big names like Beyonce, Kanye, Rihanna, Usher, and Madonna tour year around. Honestly I’m sure all of them including Bey would like to get their money back and wipe the slat clean and remained free agents!

      • B2B September 16, 2016

        Not tour together of course that would be impossible. But similar to Rock in Rio and MIA festivals. B could headline a a concert, then J, then Rih headline, Ye headline, Madonna headline. That will make people want to go with Tidal. Apple already has radio and Spotify has play list on lock! tidal needs to lock down live concerts and exclusive events.

      • B2B September 16, 2016

        I wish B would have took the Adele and T Swift route…. physical and iTunes only. I listen to my Lemonade CD the most lol

  10. Mother September 16, 2016

    I really don’t see it for tidal. It’s a sinking ship.

  11. Danny Bey September 16, 2016

    Regardless of tidal, this concert will be lit AF. I’m sure Usher and possibly Rihanna will perform seeing as though they’re proactive owners of tidal.

  12. wayno September 16, 2016

    TIDAL is in financial trouble

  13. LOL September 16, 2016

    • TeamCici September 17, 2016

  14. Kevin September 16, 2016

    I Understand They Live In New York In They Own Apart Of The Center But I’m Tired Of All The Events Being In New York. Why Can’t They Change Ups States It Seems Like New York Gets Every Concert Any Celeb Has In Other States We Have To Wait Years For Our Fav Artist To Come. I Just Hope They Try Reaching Out To Different Connects And Switch Things Up

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler September 16, 2016

  19. SMH September 16, 2016

    Keep it. If overhyped releases by Beyonce and others couldn’t save it, nothing will.

    • BEY>RIH September 16, 2016

      “And by others”, you mean frihanna right? At least Bey could still sell 2 mil+ of her album WW. What about anti?

  20. Paulo September 16, 2016

    • TeamCici September 17, 2016

      Finally! Some sense!

  21. ANNA September 16, 2016

    They can keep Lauryn. I love her but she’s the type of b*tch that would be late to her own funeral. BYE!

  22. FC/JC September 16, 2016

    Chawl we ALL know this event will NOT be for charity, behind the scenes they know they plan on keeping some of the proceeds….. Stop trying to slap Charity on everything, be humble and make it a #SaveTidalParty….
