Don’t call it a comeback.
With the emergence of Justin Timberlake back onto the music scene, he has teamed up with hip hop royalty for the most epic collaboration of our time—ok, maybe I’m getting a little ahead of myself. But it’s still pretty fantastic.
Jay Z and Timberlake will join forces this summer for a highly anticipated “Legends of the Summer” tour, hitting a handful of North American cities this July and August.
According to LiveNation, “With more than 23 Grammy Awards, 67 million albums sold and two Emmys combined, music icons JAY Z and Justin Timberlake announce 12 once-in-a-lifetime stadium performances. The ‘Legends Of The Summer’ tour will begin on July 17th in Toronto, Ontario at the Roger’s Centre and continue through August 16th in Miami, Florida at Sun Life Stadium. Tickets for all dates except New York go on sale to the public on Thursday, February 28th at Ticketmaster.com.”
Obviously the closest show to WNY would be the Toronto performance at the Rogers Centre, a venue many Buffalonians know all too well.
