Jay Z and Alicia Keys will have to wait another day to perform at the anticipated World Series. Due to inclement weather, organizers have canceled the duo’s planned performance of “Empire State of Mind” and Keys’ scheduled performance of the National Anthem Wednesday. “The World Series performance featuring JAY-Z and Alicia Keys has been rescheduled to take place in Thursday’s pre-game ceremonies, which airs on FOX starting at 7:30 p.m. Eastern,” a statement from the MLB read late Tuesday. “The performance was changed due to the forecast for inclement weather for Wednesday, October 28. Staging for the performance could adversely impact the field if it is wet, creating damaged and unsafe playing conditions.” FOX will air coverage of the World Series Thursday, October 29.
