The rapper caught in action.

Clash was at the Manchester Arena (sponsored by phones, so it is) on October 3rd to catch rap heavyweight Jay Z in action, performing tracks from his vast catalogue including a raft of cuts from his latest studio collection, 'Magna Carta... Holy Grail' (Clash review).

It's probably needless to say that some Absolute Classics were aired. Our picks: '99 Problems', 'Dirt Off Your Shoulder', 'Run This Town' and 'Izzo (H.O.V.A.)'. TBF, we could have just tossed a dart into the setlist, and wherever it hit would have been a solid-gold pick.

Check out our photo gallery from the night above.
