If you live in or near a select dozen cities across the United States and Canada, you're in luck: The Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake tour has been announced in a cryptic message on the former's website, Life & Times.
The duo is calling their road trip the Legends of the Summer Tour and they're stopping at some pretty iconic spots: Yankee Stadium in New York, Fenway Park in Boston and Soldier Field in Chicago, to name a few. (A complete listing of dates and venues is available at the bottom of this article.)
Jay-Z appears on Timberlake's comeback single "Suit & Tie." The duo have already performed the song together multiple times, most notably at Feb. 10's Grammy Awards. The rapper also appears in the song's music video, which was directed by David Fincher.
Rumors of a co-headlining tour leaked in the days following the Grammys. Jay-Z is no stranger to the concept -- he toured with Kanye West as Watch the Throne -- though these sort of plans haven't always gone his way. The Best of Both World's Tour, a 2004 co-production of Jay-Z and R. Kelly crumbled after the latter refused to rehearse and eventually bolted in the middle of the tour's Madison Square Garden show.
