As Korn and Rob Zombie hit the road spreading the rock gospel, hip-hop heavyweights Jay-Z, DMX, Method Man, and Redman launched one of the biggest rap package tours in recent memory.
The first night of the tour found Redman and Meth performing the opening set together, and Meth taking the opportunity to get up close and personal with the crowd, stage diving several times. DMX took the stage next, bringing with him a set punctuated with explosions of blood red flames (which won over local critics). Jay-Z's headlining set managed to win over the crowd as well, with fans responding most to the video images projected behind the rapper during his performance.
