Jay-Z hits back at critics in Glastonbury performance

Melbourne, June 29 (ANI): Jay-Z hit back at his critics, particularly Oasis Noel Gallagher, with a rocking performance at Britain’s famous Glastonbury music festival.

In April, Gallagher lashed out at the booking of Jay-Z to headline to festival as wrong, declaring: I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury, reports News.com.au.

However, organisers staunchly defended the choice of Jay-Z, despite the slow ticket sales and sniping from Gallager.

In a radical departure from the indie rock and guitar bands commonly associated with Glastonbury, the festival recruited the New Yorker in a bid to reach out to a younger audience.

Walking on stage with a guitar slung over his shoulder, Jay-Z led the crowd in a rendition of Oasis’s Wonderwall, smiling throughout, and with wife Beyonce Knowles in attendance, his set included songs such as 99 Problems. (ANI)
