Music news - Superstar rapper Jay-Z took the common route for a recent show, Jay-Z took the subway to his concert on Saturday.

The multi-millionaire rapper played eight sold-out shows at the newly opened Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and on the final night he and his entourage decided to take the train from Manhattan to Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn.

Jay-Z isn't the only celebrity to take public transport to their gigs. Last year in London his protege Rihanna took the city's Tube to her concert at The 02.

The 'Only Girl In The World' hitmaker - dressed casually in a white T-shirt and sunglasses with her hair tied back in a bandana - stunned rush hour commuters and concertgoers when she and her bodyguards boarded the busy Jubilee underground train line to North Greenwich where she happily posed for pictures with fans.

A source said at the time: ''She thought it would be funny. Her people agreed, so she popped down to the tube, bought a travelcard and shocked the life out of a few hundred rush hour passengers.''

Another commuter added:''She was just like any other passenger, except accompanied by a huge entourage. She was happy to pose for snaps and talk about the gig. She was so down to earth.

''Fans couldn't believe they were sharing a carriage with a world famous pop star.''

Rihanna then jumped into a waiting car outside the station which drove her the final 100 yards to the venue.
