Samsung AT&T Summer Krush came to Chicago giving a free concert at the House Of Blues with Multi-Media Mogul Jay-Z showcasing a new phone, the Samsung Jack. The Samsung Jack was used at various interactive stations featuring the "Krush Challenge" which is somewhat like the game of Tetris that allowed concert goers the opportunity to check out the new phone's organizational skills and to win a number of prizes including the Samsung Jack and an electric Guitar.

Jay-Z stepped on stage in all black to the voice of Rihanna singing the chorus to "Run This Town" his latest single featuring Kanye West & Rihanna. The intensity in which the song was delivered served as an adrenaline rush that electrified the crowd. Dominating the stage Jay-Z captivated the audience with his tenacious confidence that we like to call "swagger." With a full band backing him, he then launched into "D.O.A." sending the crowd into an almost uncontrollable frenzy. Memphis Bleek much to the crowds delight then joins him on stage for U Don't Know, 99 Problems, I Know, Big Pimpin, Hard Knock Life. With about an hour and twenty minutes he also managed to perform: Allure, Venus & Mars, Haters, Dirt off Your Shoulders, Heart of the City, his part on Kanye's Diamonds are Forever, Jigga my Nigga, Give it to Me, Show Me What you Got, & Encore. By mixing the old and the new this was by far one of the most electrifying performances that totally free was brought to us by Samsung AT&T Summer Krush.
