Jay-Z and Eminem take it to the skyline

Jay-Z and Eminem took to the New York City skyline Monday night to perform a three-song concert for David Letterman and a select group of fans.

The show was originally planned for the marquee at Letterman's Ed Sullivan Theater but was moved to the roof at the request of New York City authorities, placing the live set far away from the crowds it would have attracted at street level.

But, thankfully, fans who missed out can still see the pair perform on Friday's "Late Night with David Letterman," or when the duo heads out on their two-city tour in September.

The pair are bringing their joint act to each of their home city's baseball parks, with concerts scheduled at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx and Comerica Park in Detroit.

The short set list included Eminem's "Not Afraid" from his new album "Recovery," and Jay-Z's "On to the Next One" from his disc "The Blueprint 3." The two of them also performed "Renegade," their collaboration from "The Blueprint."
