Summer stadium tour for Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z?
Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z may be taking their buddy act on the road, possibly for a stadium tour this summer, according to various press reports.
Having appeared together Sunday night at the Grammy Awards, following another recent joint performance in New Orleans on Super Bowl weekend, Timberlake and Jay-Z are said to be lining up perhaps a dozen or more stadium shows together.
“We’re definitely going to go on tour,” Timberlake told the New York Post on the Grammy ceremony red carpet Sunday. “I don’t know how much I should say. …It’s going to be a lot of fun, I know that.”
Timberlake also tweeted on Sunday that his followers should be watching for “Big news coming out after Justin’s Grammys performance. Stay tuned or you’ll miss it.” That may, however, simply have been the announcement of his new single “Mirrors” that came on the heels of the show.
There’s no confirmation yet from either artist’s camp on the reports, but Rolling Stone says sources involved in the negotiations have said that the stadium tour is in the works. Timberlake’s new album, “The 20/20 Experience,” including his comeback single, “Suit & Tie,” is due to be released March 19.
