Justin and Jay Z take on The Windy City tonight as they take their legends of summer tour to Soldier’s Field.
R E V I E W
A telling moment arrived near the end of Jay Z and Justin Timberlake’s “Legends of the Summer” concert Monday at Soldier Field.
Timberlake, alone in a spotlight wearing a fedora with left hand thrust into his pants pocket, did a decent if hardly transcendent Frank Sinatra imitation as he started to sing “New York, New York.” Some in the full house on Chicago’s lakefront started to boo, and Timberlake, ever attentive to any sign of disapproval or distress from his audience, paused. “You know I love you, Chicago, right?” he asked plaintively.
A few minutes later, Jay Z took over for “Empire State of Mind,” his New York City anthem, and he wasn’t apologizing for anything. Sporting a Brooklyn Nets cap, bling dangling from his neck and wrapping around each wrist, he barked out the verses, then commanded the fans during the piped-in Alicia Keys chorus: “Sing it to me.”
The contrast between the eager-to-please R&B entertainer and the imperious hip-hop godfather couldn’t have been more stark. Together they represent what pop music has become. After a long separation, R&B and rap have merged in the last decade. Singers provide hooks for hip-hop tracks, and rappers routinely make cameo appearances on R&B records. Timberlake has the year’s best-selling album so far with “20/20” and Jay Z recently debuted at No. 1 with his latest release, “Magna Carta … Holy Grail.”
Their 2 ½-hour set found them swapping moments on stage and frequently interacting with each other on 36 songs, backed by 14-piece band. The opening “Holy Grail” set the tone, with yearning and hurt in Timberlake’s voice, Jay Z defiant and ticked off. The subject is fame — Timberlake cried that it will “take the clothes off my back” and yet “I love it so much,” while Jay Z cursed its demands. They came together to paraphrase Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”: “We’re stupid and contagious/And we all just entertainers.”
The line was delivered at least partially tongue-in-cheek, because both want something more. Timberlake aspires to be an all-around artist, one who has thoroughly outgrown his past as a Mouseketeer and a member of boy-band multimillion-sellers N’Sync. He played guitar and keyboards competently, directed the band, and meshed counterpoint lines from his backing singers and horn section into the promise of a “Summer Love,” the nearly psychedelic reverie “LoveStoned” and the pleading “Cry Me a River.” Timberlake danced smoothly, if not as spectacularly as the performers he emulates (notably Michael Jackson and Prince) and frequently sang near the top of his range, a would-be soul crooner whose tone still comes off a bit thin and boyish. But he has wide-ranging musical ideas, bridging Latin rhythms, rock guitars, lush soul horns, and progressive, suite-like arrangements. He wants to please, and frequently does.
Jay Z, on the other hand, wants to rule with an iron fist. “As the best rapper alive, ask about me,” he flatly declared in “Dirt Off Your Shoulder.” He staked his claim and acted the part. Whereas Timberlake was a singer in constant motion, Jay-Z glided stealthily in his gym shoes like a big cat stalking its prey. He varied his verbal attack: hard and deliberate on “U Don’t Know,” rapid fire in “Big Pimpin’,” horn-like cadences in “Hard Knock Life.” The tracks from the first half of his career through the “Black Album” classic “99 Problems” supported his claim of hip-hop supremacy. But he was coasting on newer material such as “Tom Ford,” which name-checks one of the fashion designers in the rap kingpin’s inner circle. It’s his latest way of suggesting that he has outgrown hip-hop and now become a musical franchise unto himself.
The contrasts made for good theater and a procession of crowd-pleasing hits. If Jay Z commanded the stage and the fans, Timberlake did everything short of selling popcorn to win them over. They needed each other, and the concert was better for it.

Live Nation is strongly encouraging fans attending the Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z double-bill at Candlestick Park on July 26 to use public transportation or carpool to the venue in what promises to be an exceptionally busy Friday for roads in the Bay Area.
Along with the usual commuter traffic, there are several other major events taking place around the city on the evening of the concert, including a San Francisco Giants game at AT&T Park, Oakland A’s game at the Coliseum and John Mayer concert at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View.
The prepared statement from the concert promoter advised, in part: “We encourage you to arrive at Candlestick Park prior to 5:00 pm to help avoid possible delays due to traffic… If possible, STAY OFF HIGHWAY 101 for as long as you can, using Highways 280, Highway 92, and Highway 380.”
Candlestick Park will hold more than 70,000 people for the singer and rapper’s “Legends of the Summer” tour date, which will hit 12 stadiums across North America in all.
Shuttle service will be provided from the San Mateo Event Center for $25 per person (an additional $10 will be charged for cars parked on site). Fans can also take Caltrain to the Bayshore station, which is about a 30-minute walk to Candlestick Park. MUNI will run extra T-Line trains along 3rd Street, with shuttle buses connecting to the venue. There are no BART lines that connect to Candlestick.
Parking at the venue will run between $25-$40, depending on time of arrival and the location of the lot. Oversized vehicles will not be allowed in the main lot. Drop-offs and pick-ups are discouraged.
The concert is scheduled to end at 11 p.m. at which point no one will be getting anywhere fast.
I attended summer jam earlier this month and waited almost two hours to leave the parking lot. it was hell – jess
it’s opening night!!!
since february most of us have been counting down the days until our date arrived, but for those in Toronto that day has finally come. Justin and Jay-Z take the stage tonight at 8pm to kick of their highly anticipated co-headling statdium tour. are you ready?
Last Friday, Justin Timberlake unveiled the new single off of the forthcoming second installment of The 20/20 Experience, in store on September 30. The song is titled “Take Back the Night” – and much to the surprise of those who recognize the name of the well known sexual-assault awareness foundation – the title had nothing to do with the Take Back the Night organization and its trademarked name.
Lawyers for the foundation, which dates back to 1973, quickly sent a letter to Timberlake over using the trademarked name without permission, particularly in light of the song’s sexual theme. “The lyrics are definitely very sexual and not at all clearly anti-sexual violence,” Take Back The Nights’ executive director Katherine Koestner told Radar. “‘Use me,’ for example, is not a great phrase for anyone affiliated with the organization.” According to Koestner, “Normally entities as large as Justin Timberlake do very kind and thoughtful things to support our cause.”
Timberlake acted quickly to rectify the situation. He issued a formal apology to the group, stating that he was unfamiliar with TBTN or its mission before writing the song and expressing his hope that the song would help spread the word about its work. He told Radar Online:
“Upon the release of my new single ‘Take Back The Night’, I was made aware of an organization of the same name called The Take Back The Night Foundation. I wanted to take this opportunity to let all know that neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organization. As I’ve learned more about The Take Back The Night Foundation, I’m moved by its efforts to stop violence against women, create safe communities and encourage respectful relationships for women — Something we all should rally around. It is my hope that this coincidence will bring more awareness to this cause.”
For their part, TBTN has opted not to pursue legal action against Timberlake, choosing instead to focus on their mission of creating “safe communities and respectful relationships through awareness events and initiatives” and working to spread the word about the very important work that they do. “It just shows how far we have to go when Take Back the Night as a historic movement to end sexual violence in all forms is still not widely enough known, according to Mr. Timberlake, that he claims he didn’t know that we existed,” TBTN’s Koestner told Rolling Stone. “It shows exactly how much work we have to do as an organization and as a cause to end sexual violence to get our visibility increased in pop culture.”
I had completely forgot about this line, then there were rumors of him stepping down as owner, but then this happens lol
TORONTO — Fans showed plenty of summer love for Justin Timberlake as the pop superstar promoted his fashion label north of the border during an in-store appearance.
To the delight of throngs who crowded the main floor of the Bay’s flagship Toronto store, Timberlake joined his childhood friend Trace Ayala on Tuesday to tout the fall collection of their label, William Rast.
The brand’s name originates from combining Timberlake grandfather’s first name (William) and Ayala’s grandfather’s surname (Rast).
Following an introduction by Hudson’s Bay Co. vice-chair Bonnie Brooks, the duo took to the stage with Timberlake sporting a slicked-back ‘do, blazer, white William Rast logo tee with a cassete tape and jeans. Following the brief photo opportunity, media were ushered out and Ayala and Timberlake conducted an onstage interview with ETalk reporter Traci Melchor.
