Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake coming to South Florida in August

The rumored Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z tour is a reality — and a South Florida show is in the plans.

First, bloggers hinted the Legends of the Summer Tour would take place in at least 12 outdoor venues across the U.S.

Then Thursday night, Jay-Z's lifestyle website, Life + Times, coyly posted photos of 12 stadiums — including Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Yankee Stadium in New York and Fenway Park in Boston.

The show at Sun Life will be Friday, Aug. 16. Tickets go on sale next Thursday, Feb. 28.

The pairing of the two popular stars could be the biggest tour of the summer, competing in a tight race that may also include Jay-Z’s wife, Beyonce, who will also be on the road, including shows at BB&T Center in Sunrise on July 9 and AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami on July 10.

Justin Timberlake's made his return to performing earlier this month at the Grammys, where he performed hit current single Suit and Tie, which features Jay-Z.

Timberlake's third album, The 20/20 Experience, will be released March 19.
