Jay Z takes Tube to his own gig

15th October 2013

While London is full of fascinating attractions, it's also worth bearing in mind that your journey to and from these landmarks can be equally interesting, as you never know who or what you will see when navigating around the city.

Taking the Tube, for example, can be very unpredictable, with the world's oldest underground railway network being full of interesting characters.

Anyone who doubts this may be intrigued to hear that rap superstar Jay Z this week (October 12th) travelled by Tube to his own sold out gig at London's O2 Arena.

Hopping on the Jubilee Line to North Greenwich, the instantly recognisable musician was spotted chatting to fans while accompanied by his sizeable entourage.

As if that wasn't enough, Jay Z was joined on the Tube by Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who is known to be a close friend of the rapper and later appeared on stage during the concert.

Hip hop producer Timbaland was also present in the carriage, as fans were left in awe of the incredible array of global stars taking the Tube.

If you thought this was a one-off then you'd be wrong, as many musicians have been known to take public transport to their own shows when performing in the capital.

Last year, for example, Rihanna was spotted on the Tube as she made her way to the O2 Arena, where she sang in front of a sell-out crowd.

The O2 is currently considered to be one of the finest live music venues in the world and in fact sells more tickets than any other concert arena on the planet.

For this reason, it is able to attract the very biggest names in showbusiness, so whatever type of music you're into you can be sure that your favourite artists will be playing here at some point.
