Philly’s ‘Made in America’ concert will be subject of Jay-Z documentary

    You better pretty yourself up, Philly, because the camera crews are on their way.

    Not only will Jay-Z be holding his “Made in America” concert here Labor Day weekend, but the highly anticipated show will be the subject of a documentary from duo Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (the guys behind “Arrested Development,” among other things).

    “It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective . . . how he puts the event together,” Grazer told the New York Post.
