Jay-Z & Justin Timberlake - Legends Of The Summer Tour

Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are two people who are very, very good at performing in front of vast crowds, and they’re both present on Timberlake’s new “Suit & Tie” single. And it just makes sense that both guys are about to link up and spend their summer playing shows at vast football and baseball stadiums across North America. Jay did something like this with Eminem a few years ago, but there they only played Detroit and New York. (He’s also done co-headlining tours with DMX, R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, and probably some other people I’m forgetting, but those were in piddling little arenas.) This one represents a greatly increased scope, and it could be pretty incredible. Check out the dates below.

07/19 – New York, NY @ Yankee Stadium
07/22 – Chicago, IL @ Soldier Field
07/26 – San Francisco, CA @ Candlestick Park

08/16 – Miami, FL @ Sun Life Stadium

Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience is out 3/19 on RCA, and maybe it’s not a coincidence that I’m getting an ominous Jay-Z Kingdom Come vibe from all the songs I’ve heard from it.

  1. Because spending $300 to sit in the nosebleeds at Fenway Park so far up that you can barely hear Jay or JT’s mic over the drunken screams of Southie residents or high rolling yupsters who won’t go to another concert for another 5 years again sounds like my idea of a money well spent.

    • Similar to Pearl Jam at Wrigley Field — of the 20 or so people I knew that were trying to get tickets, I was the only one to get in, and only options were 2 seats together, in the upper upper deck. Anything on the field was $1k+.

      No point in going to these shows when you’re competing against the unwashed suburban masses. Let them have it.

  2. Two smug motherfuckers are finally united. Jay-Z hasn’t got a great album for 10 years already, while new Timberlake’s one is going to be flop. He is so desperate to not dissappoint label executives so occupied Late Night for the whole week and will host SNL for exactly 19th time or so. Poor guy indeed.

    Legends :D Fuck this shite.
