Justin Timberlake has promised to make his and Jay-Z's forthcoming 'Legends of the Summer' stadium tour "a lot of fun" and hopes their songs will "fry everybody's face off"
Justin Timberlake wants to "fry everybody's face off" with his and Jay-Z's songs on their tour.
The 'Suit and Tie' hitmaker and the '99 Problems' rapper will take to the stage together for their joint 'Legends of the Summer' stadium tour in the US and Canada this summer, and while the pair are still working on the dynamics of their sizzling show, he insists the run of gigs will be "a lot of fun".
Speaking to Myspace, he said: "We still haven't put the show together, but it's gonna be a lot of fun. It's going to be a musical show. We're both on this thing where we're not into a lot of tricks. We just want to come play and like I said, fry everybody's face off with the songs and everybody have a great time. Almost festival style, you know?"
The 32-year-old singer revealed it was Jay's idea for the pair to go out on the road together, and he is determined to put all his efforts into the tour in a bid to replicate the success of Billy Joel and Sir Elton John's 'Face to Face' concert series in the US and Canada in 2001.
He added: "Jay approached me about it because I think the opportunity was coming up for him. So it just became this idea, and we just started pitching the idea around and I just said, 'Yeah, man, I like that. I like that. That could be fun.'
"I remembered artists like Billy and Elton went on tour together and you just see them mash up their songs together, and I said, 'That's what it has to be.' We have to just go out on stage for two hours and just nonstop, kill it and then go have a beer or whatever."
