Jay-Z is planning a surprise concert atop the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater next month that will turn rush-hour Times Square into a gigantic street party, sources told The Post yesterday.
The rapper is close to obtaining the necessary approvals for a July 8 “Late Show With David Letterman” performance, the sources said.
The city killed the same plan in the summer of 2010 over concerns about crowd control and security.
“If he gets permission from the mayor’s office, it’s going to be off the hook,” a law-enforcement source said. “They’ll have to shut down Broadway around the Letterman building. They’ll have to have a strong police presence. It’s going to be chaos with so many fans.”
