The rumor has been running since Jigga dropped another luxury verse on Justin Timberlake’s comeback single “Suit & Tie,” but now it’s official: Jay-Z and JT are spending the summer together.
Or at least part of the summer. This morning, the duo announced a 12-date tour that will take them into some of the country’s best baseball and football stadiums. The pairing will launch the trek—dubbed Legends of the Summer—at Toronto’s Rogers Centre on July 17 (a few days after they co-headline the Wireless Festival in London), and they’ll wrap up at Miami’s Sun Live Stadium on August 16.
In between, they’ll hit New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Baltimore, Detroit, Boston, Hershey, and Philadelphia. Sorry, most of the South and the non-California West—no Jay and Justin for you! Don’t feel bad though; Brooklyn also gets denied a show even though Jay-Z kinda sorta has his own arena there.
The complete list of tour dates is below. Tickets go on sale to the public on February 28, save for the concert at New York’s Yankee Stadium (the details on that one will come soon).
July 17 - Toronto, ON (Rogers Centre)
July 19 - New York, NY (Yankee Stadium)
July 22 - Chicago, IL (Soldier Field)
July 26 - San Francisco, CA (Candlestick Park)
July 28 - Los Angeles, CA (Rose Bowl)
July 31 - Vancouver, BC (BC Place Stadium)
August 4 - Hershey, PA (Hershey Stadium)
August 6 - Detroit, MI (Ford Field)
August 8 - Baltimore, MD (M&T Bank Stadium)
August 10 - Boston, MA (Fenway Park)
August 13 - Philadelphia, PA (Citizens Bank Park)
August 16 - Miami, FL (Sun Life Stadium)
Justin Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience hits stores on March 19, and it wouldn’t be entirely shocking if there was new Jay-Z music by the time July 17 rolls around.
Will you be checking out the Legends of the Summer tour? Outside of “Suit & Tie,” what do you hope Jay and Justin collaborate on? And will Jay-Z get heckled in Fenway Park for wearing Yankees gear, as he is wont to do? Answer our burning questions in the comments.
