MANHATTAN — Jay-Z put the Yankees in an "Empire State of Mind" for their World Series run last year — now he will headline the first concert at the new Yankee Stadium.

Hip-hop's No. 1 Yankees fan announced the Sept. 13 gig in Detroit with rapper Eminem at Comerica Park as the Bombers took on the Tigers in a doubleheader. Eminem will also perform at the Bronx show.

The show is part of a home-and-home concert series, with Eminem getting top billing during a Detroit show at the Tigers' ballpark on Sept. 2.

It won't be the first gig for Jay-Z at the new Yankee Stadium. He performed "Empire State of Mind" with Alicia Keys before Game 2 of the World Series.

Ticket information has not yet been announced.
