Jay-Z will be returning to the annual South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas for the second year in a row. After appearing alongside Kanye West for VEVO’s G.O.O.D. Music showcase in 2011, Jay-Z along with American Express will open this year’s event with the “Amex Sync Show.” The concert will be streamed live via Youtube at Austin City Limits on Monday, March 12 at 8 p.m. EST (7 p.m. CST). The pairing is to launch American Express’ new Twitter campaign, in which fans will have the opportunity to tweet songs they’ll like for Jay-Z to perform.

If you miss the live stream, a rebroadcast will air all week during SXSW from March 13-19 on-demand.
