2012 may turn out to be a pretty good year for concert/festival goers and fans of Beyonce, rap duo Kanye West and Jay-Z and songbirds Brandy and Monica.
To kick things off, word on the street is that Beyonce may be a headline act for this year’s Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, Illinois. According to an anonymous insider’s Lollapalooza twitter account, @LollaLeaks, Beyonce has been included in the major line-up alongside artists like Metallica and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Not too sure how legit this account is, but hey, Lollapalooza isn’t until August 3rd-5th. That’s enough time for Blue’s mommy to get back in business, right?
On the other hand, after city hopping during the last quarter of 2011, Jay-Z and Kanye West are taking their Watch the Throne tour to Europe. The 12-date tour will start rolling on May 20 at the O2 Arena in London and wrap up at the LG Arena in Birminham, UK. The pre-sale begins on Thursday, Friday 23rd and general public tickets will go sale on Friday, February 24. For more info about the exact tour dates, head over to rocnation.com.
And finally, after the long-awaited release of their duet single, “It All Belongs To Me,” R&B favorites Brandy and Monica will be taking part in joint summer tour later this year. During an interview with Jenny Boom Boom of Hot 93.7 (LISTEN HERE), Monica shared that the two of them are “dedicated to a tour in the summer.” No word on where and when the shows will be held.
