Good news! Even if you refuse to darken the door of the controversial near-future fever dream that is the Barclays Center, you can still catch the final of Jay-Z’s inaugural concerts at the venue.

The Daily News reports that the show will be live-streamed on Mr. Carter’s new “Life and Times” YouTube channel. The concert will serve as the launch of the channel and, according to the Daily News, “promises a lineup of ‘in depth lifestyle pieces’ based on the tastes and interests of Jay-Z.” Hopefully at some point one of those programs will address whether the man ever sleeps, or if he’s too busy fostering synergy among his many projects. 

Welcome to the future of content, which looks a lot like the past of content, but with a troll-infested comment section adding all kinds of value.

The show starts at 9:30p.m. Saturday night. You might have 99 problems, but finding something to watch that evening ain’t one.
