Justin Timberlake And Jay-Z Wireless Festival Appearances Confirmed; Will They Tour Together?
They’ve appeared on a single together, they played at the Grammys together, there are rumours they’ll be touring together, and now Justin Timberlake and Jay Z have been confirmed as headliners for London’s Wireless Festival taking place at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – which hosted the Olympic Games last year.
The move perhaps adds fuel to the fire that the pair will be on tour together in the summer, with both of them appearing in London on the same weekend. It should be noted though that they’ll be performing on different nights of the festival, with Justin Timberlake playing July 12th and Hova following up the next night on the 13th.
In a statement reported by the BBC, Steve Homer from Live Nation said: "Wireless Festival has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2005. We're incredibly excited to take it to its new home, London's iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park." Live Nation of course ditched Hyde Park, the previous home of Wireless and many of the promoter’s other big name gigs, after enduring complaints about sound levels and curfews from fans and residents alike. Timberlake’s evening includes other stars including Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz, John Legend and Frank Ocean. Jay Z meanwhile comes after Emeli Sande, Rita Ora, Kendrick Lamar, DJ Fresh and Calvin Harris. It’ll be nice for Emeli Sande to be playing at home eh.
