Jay and Kanye at The Garden

Watch The Throne Tour @ Madison Square Garden

For the Nov. 7th Watch The Throne show at Madison Square Garden, Jay-Z & Kanye performed for a solid two and a half hours. No cameos, no breaks.

With two rising light cube platforms, the two took turns throwing out bits from WTT and their own albums.

This list of songs performed is not 100% accurate (since I knew all of Kanye’s but not every last one of Jay-Z’s):

Who Gon Stop Me
Welcome To The Jungle
Gotta Have It
Big Pimpin'
Can't Tell Me Nothing
Flashing Lights
Through The Wire
Jesus Walks
Diamonds from Sierra Leone
Public Service Announcement
U Don't Know
Run This Town
Made In America
New Day
Hard Knock Life
Izzo (H.O.V.A.)
Empire State Of Mind
On To The Next One
Dirt Off Your Shoulder
I'm A Hustler Baby
Good Life
Touch The Sky
All Of The Lights
Gold Digger
99 Problems
No Church In The Wild
Lift Off
Niggas in Paris
Niggas in Paris
Niggas in Paris
Money Ain't A Thang
Can I Get A...
Get Em High
All Falls Down
Why I Love You

The performances were strong and relentless. Most of the full songs performed were from WTT, while their own tracks were cherry picked.


  • Jay-Z & Kanye West took down The Garden for a full 2.5 hours, no breaks
  • Kanye’s set included Jesus Walks, Flashing Lights, Through The Wire
  • Great, affordable seats – thank you Citi pre-sale
  • Allowed to bring in phones/cameras/food – security didn’t care


  • 2 hour delay of absolutely nothing between the 7:30p start and the 9:30p actual start
  • The Garden robs you blind – $5 for a bottle of water, sans bottle
  • Illicit drugs in the air, hard to breathe throughout the show
  • No guest appearances – not a game breaker, but the audience expected it

It’s great to be able to cross off watching Jay perform at home from my bucket list.
