Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar to Headline Yahoo! On The Road Tour
For those of you who have been enjoying Kendrick Lamar’s “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix)” featuring Jay-Z, there is something even bigger to look forward to between the two rappers. Just last week during the interactive portion of the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX, Yahoo! announced a new and pretty unexpected international music fest: “Yahoo! On the Road” tour.
The 21-date tour will make stops between May 3 and July 14 throughout the United States and Europe, beginning in New York City and ending in London. Fans can expect to see a wide variety of performers in addition to Jay and Kendrick, such as Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean, Trey Songz, J.Cole, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
A special note to add: J. Cole, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are among the artists who will join the two MCs on the U.S. portion, while Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean, and Trey Songz will only appear in the European shows, which will take place July 12th-July 14th during the Yahoo! Wireless Festival in London.
While there is no finalized line-up just yet, the Yahoo! on the Road site provides the dates (listed below) and more information. Yahoo! also promises 32 performers, 10 comedians and 1 yodeler.
Will any of you be purchasing a ticket to this fest?
