Sources from Live Nation have said that they plan to continue the touring aspect of the deal with Jay Z, but they do not want to be involved with the recording music part. A spokesman from Jay Z’s end said that the contract would not be re-upped. The reason for this is because Live Nation no longer buys recorded music. Prior to the slight change in Live Nation’s business, they had purchased rights to the musicians and their recorded music. While Live Nation decided not to be involved with the recorded music side, they wish to continue with the touring relationship with Jay Z. Refer to for additional article.
