JAY-Z: PHILLY OFFICIALS DEBATE COST OF LABOR DAY FESTIVAL
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The mayor of Philadelphia apparently believes you have to spend money to make money. And Michael Nutter says that's why the public cost of hosting Jay-Z's upcoming music festival is worth it. Nutter told a news conference the costs of putting on the show to residents of Philly haven't been fully calculated. But he says the "Made In America" weekend concert is a chance for the city "to invest in ourselves." And Nutter says the event will bring "short-, medium- and long-term benefits." More than two dozen acts will perform at the two-day event put together by Jay-Z. He and Pearl Jam will be the headline acts.
