Is Justin Timberlake Going On Tour With Jay-Z?


Now that Justin Timberlake is back with some new songs and a forthcoming new album, not to mention a few new live performances under his belt, it’s time to start think about his upcoming concert tour. We know that JT has been working on a plan of attack but we don’t know for sure if he is planning to hit the road solo or if he is going to be touring with a special friend. For Justin’s most recent live performances, he has been joined on stage by his new BFF Jay-Z … and rumor has it that the guys are planning to tour together for reals.

After teaming up at the Super Bowl and at the Grammys, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z will launch a 10-city stadium tour together, we hear. Timberlake was joined by Jay-Z at the music awards show Sunday to perform his new track “Suit & Tie” — and we’re told they’ll be dusting off those dapper Tom Ford tuxes for a full-blown tour … The “Sexy Back” singer hinted there will be “big news coming” after the Grammys via Twitter, and he admitted on the red carpet, according to a report, “We’re definitely going to go on tour . . . I don’t know how much I should say . . . It’s going to be a lot of fun, I know that.” JT didn’t reveal who “we” was, but our sources say it’s the “Watch the Throne” rapper.

I mean … duh, of course these two are hitting the road together IF Jay-Z has the time to do so. I always assumed that JT and JZ would be going on tour together this year, if only for a short jaunt. My guess is the only way this might not happen is if Jay is already committed to other projects or commitments. The idea of both Justin and Jay on the same bill is a very attractive one. We’ve already seen how successful a tour that features heavyweights Kanye West and Jay-Z could be … might a tour that features Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z surpass that success? HMMM. Would YOU be interested in seeing these two on stage together in concert?

    Sign me up! In fact, I told my friends on Sunday night watching the Grammy’s that if Jay-Z was dropping Kanye for JT I would be more than fine with that. You know Beyonce likes Jessica more than Kim.

      ‘You know Beyonce likes Jessica more than Kim.’

      LOL so true!

    If this is true, it will be the BEST career move JT could possibly make. Correction! That any artist can make. Jay-Z instantly makes any song or performance at least a 100 times better. If it happens it will BLOW Beyonces tour success out of the water. So the real question is….. Will Bey let him tour with JT?

      “Jay-Z instantly makes any song or performance at lease 100 times better.”

      Uh, not really. Love me some JayZ but had no business on the Coldplay song Lost. And Suit & Tie is a hugely disappointing single for both JayZ and JT. Waited over six years for new Timberlake and instead of bringing it, he just brought sucky back.

    That just sounds like a really good time. Shakin my booty just thinking about it!

    I still haven’t hear Suit and Tie in full on purpose (JT’s ego is just too much). But I love Jay. Does this mean we have to expect Mrs. Timberlake in pathetic pix with Bey, trying to look cool enough to hang with her like Kim attempted and abysmally failed? Oh dear.

    A friend of mine just bought tickets for our group with her Citi bank card. We got some pretty good seats. I would check it out if you have Citi.
