The Legends of the Summer Stadium Tour was a co-headlining North American concert tour by American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake and American rapper Jay Z. The tour supported Timberlake's third studio album, The 20/20 Experience (2013) and Jay-Z's twelfth studio album, Magna Carta Holy Grail (2013). Following the artist's joined collaboration on "Suit & Tie" and their performance at the 2013 Grammy Awards rumors started about their possible joined touring. The tour was sold out throughout with a total attendance of 622,559 and a gross revenue of 69.75 million dollars.
After a six year musical hiatus, on January 14, 2013, Timberlake released "Suit & Tie", the lead single from the singer's third studio album, The 20/20 Experience which featured American rapper Jay-Z. Prior the 2013 Grammy Awards ceremony, Ryan Seacrest interviewed Timberlake and teased him about a possible joint tour with another artist. On that Timberlake responded, "We are still putting it together, but it's gonna be a lot of fun. I don't know how much should I say."
During the award ceremony, Timberlake was joined by Jay-Z at the stage for the performance of "Suit & Tie". Following their appearance on Grammys, rumors of a stadium tour between the artists were raised as a result of Jay-Z's posts on his Life + Times blog; he posted series of venues with the note "#LegendsOfSummer this week". The Legends of the Summer tour was officially announced on February 22, 2013, when North American dates were revealed. The show is set to start on July 17, 2013 in Toronto, Canada. The tickets for the show went on sale on February 28, with the pre-sale starting on February 27.
