Last week, we told you about Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake's probable tour together, yet the duo themselves remained cryptic and elusive about any details.

Now, Jay-Z's site Life + Times confirmed that the pair will embark on the Legends of the Summer tour, a 12-city tour kicking off July 17 in Toronto's Rogers Centre. Under the headline "Legends of the Summer," the site posted pictures of 12 venues, with promoter Live Nation confirming the dates:

July 17, Toronto, ON Rogers Centre
July 19, New York, NY Yankee Stadium
July 22, Chicago, IL Soldier Field
July 26, San Francisco, CA Candlestick Park
July 28, Los Angeles, CA Rose Bowl
July 31, Vancouver, BC BC Place Stadium
August 4, Hershey, PA Hershey Stadium\
August 6, Detroit, MI Ford Field
August 8, Baltimore, MD M&T Bank Stadium
August 10, Boston, MA Fenway Park
August 13, Philadelphia, PA Citizens Bank Park
August 16, Miami, FL Sun Life Stadium

Jay-Z recently joined Justin at the 2013 Grammys for a performance of their latest collaboration "Suit & Tie." Timberlake is set to have a busy week, recently announcing an upcoming Saturday Night Live gig on March 9 and a week of Jimmy Fallon shows March 11 - 15.

Tickets for all dates except New York go on sale to the public on Thursday, February 28th at LiveNation.com. A New York on-sale date has yet to be announced. 

Watch the Throne, Jay-Z's 2011/12 tour with Kanye West, grossed more than $48 million. Can JT top that?
