The rumors of a tour are now confirmed: Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are hitting the road together this summer for the very literally titled “The Legends of Summer Tour,” with a local stop at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium on Aug. 8.
When last we saw Jay-Z performing around here, he came to town on the co-headlined “Watch the Throne” tour alongside Kanye West. The duo’s performance at the Verizon Center was among 2011′s most memorable. It’s been a much longer hiatus for Timberlake, who hasn’t toured in the area since 2007, when he performed with Pink at the Verizon Center.
If you’re up for a bit of a drive, the tour will also make a stop in Hershey on Aug. 4. Tickets ($39.50 to $250) for the shows go on sale Feb. 28 through Live Nation.
