Nas has the streets on fire right now with his King’s Disease II album. Now the Hip-Hop icon is set to return to Queens for the “Concert to Feed NYC” on Thursday, Sept. 23 at the historic Forest Hills Stadium.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit City Harvest, New York City’s first and largest food rescue organization, during a time of historic food insecurity across the city, and the costs of the venue have been generously donated.
Nas is a longtime supporter of City Harvest and this will be his first live show in his hometown in nearly three years. The Concert to Feed NYC will help support City Harvest’s efforts to ensure that no New Yorker will have to worry about where their next meal is coming from.
”I am looking forward to returning to stage for a performance in my hometown—especially since it supports a cause a care deeply about,” said Nas.
The Concert to Feed NYC will be an exclusive event for 4,000 and will have Speakeasy suites, mini-loungers, and lounge-style seating.
“The Concert to Feed NYC will help us rescue and deliver more food for the many New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables because of the pandemic, many for the first time,” said Jilly Stephens, CEO of City Harvest. “We are so grateful to have a dedicated and passionate friend in Nas who will create such a special evening to support our work. Together, we can feed our city.”
“Mimi Eayrs and I are thrilled to produce Nas and The Concert to Feed NYC with our longtime partner City Harvest,” said Josh Wood of Josh Wood Productions. “The COVID crisis is far from over, and it’s our duty as New Yorkers to create new ways to fundraise for City Harvest…and what’s more New York than Nas and City Harvest together?”
