Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z officially announce summer stadium tour

timberlake-jay-z

The rumor has been running since Jigga dropped another luxury verse on Justin Timberlake’s comeback single “Suit & Tie,” but now it’s official: Jay-Z and JT are spending the summer together.

Or at least part of the summer. This morning, the duo announced a 12-date tour that will take them into some of the country’s best baseball and football stadiums. The pairing will launch the trek—dubbed Legends of the Summer—at Toronto’s Rogers Centre on July 17 (a few days after they co-headline the Wireless Festival in London), and they’ll wrap up at Miami’s Sun Live Stadium on August 16.

In between, they’ll hit New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Baltimore, Detroit, Boston, Hershey, and Philadelphia. Sorry, most of the South and the non-California West—no Jay and Justin for you! Don’t feel bad though; Brooklyn also gets denied a show even though Jay-Z kinda sorta has his own arena there.

The complete list of tour dates is below. Tickets go on sale to the public on February 28, save for the concert at New York’s Yankee Stadium (the details on that one will come soon).  READ FULL STORY

Mumford and Sons announce dates, lineups for 'Stopover' mini-fests

Move over, Dave Matthews Band Caravan — there’s a new folk group with a traveling tour in town.

Though probably not your town. Mumford & Sons are adding new small-town dates to their Gentlemen of the Road tour, thus reviving their “Stopovers” scheme from last year. And this time, they’re bringing some new friends along for the ride.

The two-day Stopovers — planned in what Mumford & Sons says are “towns not normally frequented by touring bands in busses or splitter vans” — will feature a range of artists, from Vampire Weekend to the Vaccines.

“We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud, explore them, and enjoy what they have to offer,” the band said in a statement.

So, which lucky towns will get to see Mumford & Pals? Check out the full schedule below:

New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men touring together this summer: 'Ladies, we're coming for you'

The-Package-Tour.jpg

NKOTBSB was only the beginning.

New Men Kids on the Block Jordan, Jonathan, Joey, Donnie, and Danny revealed on The View today that they’ll release a new album, 10, this April. The boys also announced that they’re planning a national tour this summer with a few very special guests — newly reunited boy band 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men, the R&B group single-handedly responsible for 87 percent of babies born in 1995. They’re calling the event “The Package Tour,” because “NKOTB98DB2M” would look weird on a t-shirt. Here’s an actual quote from the press release:

“Ladies, we’re coming for you,” said NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg. “This is going to be the craziest year yet — the single, the album, the tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men … We can’t wait to give fans ‘The Package!’”

Green Day announce new tour dates, update on Billie Joe Armstrong's rehab stay

After a taxing end to 2012, things are starting to brighten up for Green Day.

The band had to nix a run of tour dates after frontman Billie Joe Armstrong checked into rehab back in September, just a few days after the release of ¡Uno!, the first of a trilogy of albums that hit store shelves last year.

Armstrong has been laying pretty low since then, but the new year brought some good news: The band has booked a bunch of new dates, and Armstrong’s recovery is moving along nicely.

“I just want to thank you all for the love and support you’ve shown for the past few months,” Armstrong said in a statement directed at fans. “Believe me, it hasn’t gone unnoticed and I’m eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family. I’m getting better everyday. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. We can’t wait to get on the road and live out load! Our passion has only grown stronger.” READ FULL STORY

Madonna had the top-grossing tour of 2012

Call it the Super Bowl bump?

Billboard has announced the list of the 2012’s top-grossing tours, and it looks like Madonna is at the top. Her Madgesty sold out all 72 of the shows she played this year, grossing a grand total of $228,406,085 over the year. Interestingly, her new album  MDNA only landed at No. 44 on the year-end Billboard 200 chart, moving 521,000 units in the U.S. as of December.

After Madonna on the top-grossing tours list is Bruce Springsteen, whose raked in just shy $200 million this year with his Wrecking Ball tour. (He did, however, beat Madonna in overall attendance by about 500,000 people. Like Madonna, he also played 72 shows.) Roger Waters came in third with roughly $186 million (and nearly 50,000 more in attendance than Madge). Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour by Cirque Du Soleil came in fourth place with about $147 million for the year, which just edged No. 5 Coldplay by roughly $100,000.
