Jay-Z and Eminem perform at first concert in Yankee Stadium

The new Yankee Stadium played host to Jay-Z and Eminem tonight as they performed the first of two sold out shows in the stadium.

Fans eagerly awaited the concert for hours outside of the stadium to catch a glimpse of their favorite hip-hop stars.

Nearly 50,000 people packed the stadium and tickets went for as much as $13,000 each.

Another performance is scheduled for tomorrow night.
