This weekend, JAY-Z headed to England for what Metro described as “his only UK appearance of 2017” for this year’s massive, sold-out V-Fest.

The revered rap statesman reportedly performed a setlist of old material, mixed with music from his latest album, 4:44, before ending his set with a tribute to the late Chester Bennington.

Framed in front of a massive “40-foot-tall, metallic Jeff Koons inflatable dog,” Hov asked the lighting technician to dim the lights, before asking the crowd to “light it up tonight, for Chester. For Linkin Park one time tonight. Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way in heaven tonight,” before breaking into a performance of “Numb/Encore.”
