You gotta love the summer time. Usually the time of the year when network tv shows put on their run of the mill concert in the mall/park/plaza series.

Even the biggest stars are not exempt from pulling off a concert in the mall/park/plaza, as Jay Z and Eminem pulled off a surprise concert recently.

Last week rumors swirled that a secret Jay-Z concert would take place on Monday in New York City. The blogs sprung into action, sleuthing out the details and eventually revealing that Jay-Z and special guest Eminem would appear together on The Late Show with David Letterman, performing atop the show’s famous marquee on Broadway in Times Square.

The outdoor concert was timed to promote the release of Em’s new album Recovery, out NOW.

After word of the free concert leaked, Mayor Mike Bloomberg pulled the plug on things, citing the near-riot that greeted Drake‘s recent outdoor show on New York’s waterfront. So it came as a surprise to everyone when, late Monday afternoon, Eminem and Jay-Z suddenly appeared on the rooftop of the Ed Sullivan Theater to perform their set for The Late Show.
