Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the pop/hip-hop power duo of Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z would be teaming up for a mega stadium tour and Timberlake took to Twitter to confirm the rumors with a photo.

The Legends of Summer tour will make a stop in Boston for a Fenway Park show on Aug. 10 while the Red Sox are in Kansas City for a series against the Royals. Other venues include New York’s Yankee Stadium (July 19) and Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park (Aug. 13).

Tickets for the tour go on sale Feb. 28, excluding the show at Yankee Stadium.


Before the Grammys, Timberlake sat down with Ryan Seacrest and told him that there would definitely be a tour and that it would be “very fun.”
