DJ AM Joins Jay-Z On Stage

October 16th, 2008 // Leave a Comment

Last night at the newly revamped Hollywood Palladium, the recently welcomed DJ AM spun for rapper Jay-Z to commemorate the reopening of the Tinseltown landmark. The Jiggaman performed to an audience attended by celebrities and mere mortals alike, backed by a ten piece orchestra and AM on the turntables.

AM (real name Adam Goldstein) posed for pictures for photo agencies at the top of the red carpet, but avoided talking to press and avoided the media gauntlet all together. It’s understandable that the 35-year-old was a bit press shy at his first major performance since his plane crash.

The evening’s performance made it clear where Jay-Z stood politically when the image of President George W. Bush appeared on a screen behind him on stage and the rapper asked the audience, “We’re voting for [Barack] Obama, right?” to thunderous applause.
