Beyonce & Jay Z to Perform at New York Charity Concert With Celebrity Friends

Beyonce and Jay Z are set to join forces on stage again for a New York charity concert and this time, they're bringing along some of their celebrity friends to perform as well.

Though they won't have multiple show dates in North America and Europe like the 2014 On The Run Tour, The Carters have decided to do another joint concert, this time in New York, for one night only, in October.

As reported by Page Six, the iconic couple has put together a charity concert to benefit New York-based organization, The Robin Hood Foundation, on October 15 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The charity has been in operation since 1988 with a mission to fight poverty and develop useful programs and funding for underprivileged New York families.

Though "Yonce" and "Hov" are the powerhouses set to host the one-night event, they have invited some of their music entertainment friends like Lauryn Hill and Lil Wayne to join them for the benefit show.

Similar to the Paris, France On The Run show, which featured "Flawless (Remix)" artist, Nicki Minaj, will also take the stage during the show.

Tidal members can stream the show live with the online service but, if you would like a seat at the actual show, tickets start at about $50; with VIP packages available for a whopping $100,000 price tag.

The benefit concert announcement comes on the heels of recent reports that Mr. Carter may be struggling to turn a profit with the music streaming service.

As reported by Vanity Fair, the online streaming service "lost $28 million last year" and has "reportedly failed to pay more than 100 outstanding bills."

If the October benefit concert reaches sold-out status and brings in new Tidal members, the "I'm a Hustler Baby" rapper could garner a substantial financial gain.
