What’s better than last weekend’s world-o’-Lil Wayne hip-hop concert? How about a free Jay-Z show?

Next Tuesday, Sept. 8, Beyonce’s better half will headline a free concert at 8 p.m. at Chicago’s House of Blues.

The tickets are free, which means there’s a big commercial promotion with it, of course, courtesy of Samsung and AT&T (you can try out their new JACK cell phone at the show). Here are the two ways to land the free tickets: (1) A certain number of tickets are made available each day leading up to the show on this Samsung site which also shows the other free concerts around the country, and boy did we get the best act. (2) Listen to WPWX for ticket giveaways.
