Jay Z and Beyonce to launch summer tour, claims New York Post


If we are to believe New York Post's declarative headline — "Beyoncé and Jay Z touring together" — then we're going to need some CPR. Unnamed sources tell the newspaper that America's musical royal couple is planning to announce a 20-stadium tour this summer, with a possible July 4 concert in New York.

Details are scarce, but the duo's "surprise appearances" on each other's tours might be indicative of something bigger. Jay Z wrapped up his "Magna Carta Holy Grail" tour in January and Beyoncé finished up her world tour in March. The tour would be the pair's first official concert together.

No word if Blue Ivy will be the opener.
