Grammy-winning rapper Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are reportedly taking their "Suit & Tie" anthem on the road with a 12-date stadium tour called "Legends of the Summer."
While details are still surfacing, buzz about the national tour has started to spread.
Rumors have swirled and the announcement (sort of) is finally here. Two of music's biggest stars in Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake will embark on a 12-date stadium tour, "Legends of the Summer." Taking place in outdoor venues, notable stops on the North American trek includes New York City's Yankee Stadium, Toronto's Rogers Centre (formerly SkyDome), Miami's Sun Life Stadium and Boston's Fenway Park. Dates have yet to be announced, but according to clues revealed on Jay-Z's Life+Times website, the locations look to be confirmed. Expect a second announcement with ticket details and dates to come soon. The "Suit & Tie" collaborators have already performed at this year's Grammy Awards, and Super Bowl weekend in support of Timberlake's forthcoming The 20/20 Experience album (Mar.19). (Miss Info TV)

Hov and JT will also hook up around mid-July for London's Wireless Festival.
London's Wireless Festival is sure to be off the hook this summer. The two-day affair has snagged Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z as headliners--and though they're slated for different nights, July 12 and July 13, it's hard to believe that the dapper duo will both be in the neighborhood and not do a rendition of "Suit & Tie" for the adoring crowd. But it at least certainly sounds as if Timberlake is gearing up to announce the tour he talked to E! News about backstage at the Grammys. (E! Online)
Recently, former Dirty Money singer Dawn Richard hit up SOHH with her reaction to Timberlake coming back to take over the music game.
"I think it's legendary and the reason why I say that is because he's managed to rest and take a break in such a way where he was successful in something completely different. He created a craft in acting, really was successful in that and then to be able to come back in such a way, and do it in such a classy way, the way he did it, that's legendary in itself," Dawn told SOHH, referring to JT. "He did it in a way where you weren't oversaturated, which was perfect. You stay out the game and then came back with a new sound, a new plan and you can always respect someone who has a plan like that." (SOHH)
