Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z announced a joint summer tour today, confirming rumors that have been in effect since their joint performance at the Grammy Awards earlier this month.

Timberlake and Jay-Z’s “Legends of The Summer” tour includes 12 concerts in Toronto, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Hershey, Pennsylvania, Detroit, Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia and Miami mid-July through mid-Aug.

Timberlake will release his new album, “The 20/20 Experience,” March 19 on RCA records. The album will be Timberlake’s first in seven years.

Tickets range from $39.50 to $250 and will go on sale (minus the New York date) Feb. 28.

At the Grammy Awards, Timberlake performed his new single “Suit & Tie” with Jay-Z, which received much positive feedback. He has also performed the songs “Mirrors,” “Pusher Love Girl” and “That Girl” off the new album live.

It was announced earlier this week that Timberlake and Jay-Z will headline London’s Wireless Festival this summer, as well.

Timberlake will host Saturday Night Live for the fifth time March 9. He will also perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon March 11-15 and be interviewed by Fallon March 11 and March 15.

Timberlake appeared on Fallon’s first show and the two have performed skits together on “Saturday Night Live” along with the viral “History of Rap” trilogy on Fallon’s show.

Timberlake and Jay-Z’s stadium tour is expected to be popular, and presale tickets become available Feb. 27.
