Both Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s teams would have to agree to donate concert tickets. Neither has signed onto the project yet.

As the article says, it’s not official yet, but the idea is being pitched to her. I saw Beyonce in concert once, she was quite good. That said, if NY currently has a $250 buyback program I would definitely rather have the money if I lived there.
Just because I feel like quoting Jay-z from one of my favorite songs “Where I’m From“:
I’m from where you can’t put your vest away and say you’ll wear it tomorrow because the day after they’ll be saying “Damn I was just with him yesterday”
I like Beyonce the best when she sings / looks good, not when she demands stupid plans.
