Jay Z Rides London Underground With Chris Martin, Timbaland, and Yankee Players Robinson Cano and CC Sabathia: Picture
Jay Z is just like Us! The 43-year-old rapper was spotted riding the London underground -- known as the Tube -- with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Timbaland on Saturday, Oct. 12. The group was headed to the star's concert at the O2 Arena, where the two pals would later join him on stage.
Beyonce's husband was also joined by some A-list athletes for the tube trip. "Jay, Chris Martin, CC Sabathia, Robinson Cano and about 15 others took the tube to the show," a source reveals to Us Weekly. "Fans went nuts on the train and in the walk to the O2 Arena."
"He got on the same carriage as us at Waterloo station," another eyewitness says. "It was the Jubilee Line."
The famous pals took the Jubilee Line to North Greenwich, where the concert went down at the O2 Arena. Following the show, everyone went to London's Shoreditch for the Cognac D'USSE after party. Jay Z is expected to be back at the venue on Monday, Oct. 14, for a second concert.
This isn't the first time the Brooklyn native has caused a commotion by his presence on public transportation. In December 2012, the megastar rubbed elbows with passengers on the New York City subway. When Jay Z took a seat next to artist Ellen Grossman on the R train, an adorable video was captured of the older woman not realizing that she was sitting next to an international hip hip superstar. At the time, Jay Z was on his way to perform at his eighth and final show at Brooklyn's Barclays Arena.
