The Barclays Center—new home of the Brooklyn Nets—is still under construction, but the unfinished stadium was recently put on display, when someone with the username “Jeffisher62” posted nearly 50 pictures of the arena on Instagram.
The phantom photo taker is believed to be a construction worker, who snapped pictures of both the interior and exterior of the arena. After the pictures were posted they were quickly removed, but not before NetsDaily could pick them up. These are the first photos that have been released to the public of the new multi-million dollar stadium. The pictures show the nearly completed arena featuring modern looking globe-shaped lighting fixtures as well as multi-colored geometric tiling throughout the concourse.
Nets minority owner Jay-Z, will kick off the grand opening of the arena with a series of concerts in late September. Jay will rock the house and take the stage on opening night September 28. Hov will perform a total of eight shows in all, dating from late September into early October. And for those who may not have the big bucks to go see Jigga perform, he priced thousands of tickets for only 30 dollars. Not only will the arena house Jay on opening night, as well as the newly branded Brooklyn Nets, but also performances by Justin Bieber, Barbra Streisand and Neil Young within the year.
Tickets are on sale now for each of the eight shows and can be purchased through Ticketmaster, or the Barclays website.
