"Suit & Tie" gents coming to an arena near you
Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z are bringing their suits and ties across North America later this year for their double-billed "Legends of the Summer" tour. JT and Hova will follow their Grammys duet with a month-long, 12-date stadium tour, beginning on July 17 at Toronto's Rogers Centre and ending on August 16 at Miami's Sun Life Stadium. In between those performances, Misters Timberlake and Carter will touchdown in New York's Yankee Stadium, Chicago's Soldier Field, San Francisco's Candlestick Park, Pasadena's Rose Bowl, Vancouver's BC Place, Hershey, Pennsylvania's Hershey Park Stadium, Detroit's Ford Field, Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium, Boston's Fenway Park, and Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park.
Tickets for every show except the July 19 gig at Yankee Stadium will go on sale via Live Nation on February 28. Information regarding the Bronx, NY date is forthcoming. Right now, fans can head to the tour's Facebook page to RSVP for February 27 pre-sale offers.
Days before the "Legends of the Summer" trek kicks off, JT and Jay-Z will headline this year's Wireless Festival in London's Olympic Park, albeit on different nights. The annual two-day event has booked Timberlake for a July 12 performance and locked Jay-Z down for a July 13 set. Hopefully by then, Timberlake will have loosened his bow tie to let his new material breathe a bit. (He does have a warm-up show planned for March 9, after all.)
