Justin Timberlake and Jay Z are coming to Boston for their Legends Of The Summer Tour! On Saturday, August 10 and Sunday, August 11 the duo will perform in front of fans at Fenway Park for 'one of the greatest concerts of 2013'.
The tour follows Timberlake's third studio album, The 20/20 Experience and Jay Z's 12th studio album, Magna Carta... Holy Grail. Rumors of a tour started after the collaboration of "Suit and Tie" which was released on Timberlake's latest album. The North American tour started on July 17th in Toronto, Canada and will be wrapping up mid-August.
USAToday.com raves "Jay Z was, figuratively speaking, the cooler customer, keeping his flow smooth and sharp and his diction crisp enough so that fans could savor his witty wordplay. He received their love as a matter of fact, whether playfully leading the crowd through an old fave such as 99 Problems or Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) or fervidly selling the Magna Carta tracks Tom Ford and F---WithMeYouKnowIGotIt.
His tour partner proved a more patently ingratiating host. Timberlake has always been an enormously gracious and endearing performer; it could be argued that no artist has gotten further on sheer likability. If the charm of his blue-eyed soul falsetto seemed in danger of wearing thin at times — particularly in the second half, during a long stretch that opened with Pusher Love Girl and included a crowd-pleasing Cry Me A River — the audience failed to notice, remaining rapt."
Tickets are available through StubHub and are selling out fast! This is a concert you do not want to miss!

"Two of Boston's iconic cultural institutions – the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and the Boston Pops – will come together at Symphony Hall to honor President Kennedy and the 1960's era of American culture. The evening will evoke the 1960s 'Mad Men' era, with a special musical performance featuring excerpts of President Kennedy's most memorable speeches narrated by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick.
Song stylist Steve Lippia, whom Keith Lockhart has called, 'the absolute vocal reincarnation of the Sinatra sound,' will step into the limelight, to perform the smoky standards that define the chic sounds of the '60's. Lockhart, Lippia, and the Boston Pops will perform everything ranging from this era's lounge Latin to the tunes of the British Invasion, as well as such classic songs as 'Fly Me to the Moon,' 'Mack the Knife,' and 'The Best is Yet to Come'.
