1st Mariner Arena (still hard not to call it Baltimore Arena) has really been stepping up its game lately. A couple weeks ago, the arena announced that Bruce Springsteen will play there for his first Baltimore show since 1973, when he opened for Chicago. Yeah, The Boss is also playing in D.C., but 1st Mariner will be one of the smaller venues on his tour.

Today it was just announced that hip-hop heavyweight Jay-Z will also be performing at the arena this fall as apart of a "College Arena Tour" to promote his latest album, Blueprint 3. His October 27 Baltimore show looks unique to the tour, as most venues are stadiums on college campuses, from Penn State to UMass to University of Texas, Austin.

According to the press release, there are 21 dates confirmed (which you can view here). Additionally, Jay-Z will hold a charity concert at Madison Square Garden on September 11, where 100 percent of the concert's proceeds will go to the New York Police & Fire Widows and Children's Benefit Fund.

Tickets for the Baltimore show go on sale September 11 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at livenation.com. Can't wait to see who's going to play the arena next!
