Updated: Now we’ve got a tour poster confirming the Jay-Z/Timberlake summer tour. Check it out below.
Through his Facebook page and the interactive image above sponsored by Stipple, Justin Timberlake announced his busy promotional plans for March: returning as host and musical guest for Saturday Night Live on March 9 and then a full week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from March 11-15.
March 9 will be Timberlake’s fifth time to host NBC’s long-running comedy sketch show. During his seven-year break from music, Timberlake became an SNL favorite through several memorable sketches like singing “Dick in a Box” with his buddy Andy Samberg and a surprise appearance last year in a Jay-Z/Beyonce sketch that featured his spot-on Bon Iver impression.
Timberlake’s week-long stint on Fallon will be the first time any guest has appeared in every show in one week. Rolling Stone reports that Timberlake will perform nightly during March 11-15 as well as sit down to chat with Jimmy at the beginning and end of the week.
The 20/20 Experience, the “Suit & Tie”-singer’s third album, will be released on March 19 via RCA.
Jay-Z also released a ton of photos through his Life and Times website, which adds to the speculation that the two will tour together. Although the duo is headlining the Wireless Festival in the U.K., this would be the first proper tour announcement. The following locations were announced through Jay-Z’s website with the hashtag #legendsofthesummer. After Jay-Z posted images of 12 venues on his website last night, Live Nation provided the official tour dates today. Check out the full list below.
