Will JT and Jay-Z be hitting up the MIA?
Last week, after Timberlake admitted "[Jay and I] are definitely going to go on tour" while walking the Grammys' red carpet, we here at Crossfade insisted: "These two dapper dudes gotta make a stop in Miami, right?"
And it seems as though Justin and Mr. Carter heard us. Because last night, Jay-Z revealed a dozen photos of the planned locations for his and JT's upcoming Legends of the Summer tour, including Miami's Sun Life Stadium.
Posted to his social media and lifestyle site LifeAndTimes.com under the header "Legends of the Summer," the location pics also included Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, and the Rose Bowl.
