With the recent exciting announcement that super couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé will embark on a 16 city tour titled “On the Run”, we wondered what other super concert tours would people love to see. Whether it’s flings of the past, a family matter, or two opposites that we think attract, here are concert tours we would line up to see.
Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears
Our first on the list is not far from what happened in reality. In 1999 “newcomer” Britney Spears opened up for N*SYNC where she rekindled the flame that existed during “The Mickey Mouse Club” years. We all know what happened and sadly, the reigning Prince and Princess of Pop are no longer together. We think Justin would open with “Cry Me a River” and Britney would end with “Toxic”, which may explain why the two are not the best fit for a relationship, or tour in the near future.
Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus
This father daughter duo would certainly bring different audiences together. Billy Ray‘s success as a country star in the early 90s would jive well with Miley‘s new wild-child attitude. Our dream set list would begin with some tongue-wagging action and “We Can’t Stop” which is the perfect time for Billy Ray’s major hit “Achy Breaky Heart” to be played. Don’t be surprised when the two sing cover songs and twerk around the stage.
Boyz II Men and SlipKnot
The R&B band “Boyz II Men” hit it big in the 90s with their soulful songs about love and heartbreak. For those who enjoy sappy sweet songs, but don’t want it all at once can balance it out with SlipKnot. With songs like “All Hope is Gone”, the heavy metal performance from Slipknot intertwined with with the smooth R&B sound of Boyz II Men will create everlasting memories, or possibly nightmares.
Eminem, Mariah Carey, and DMX
Music is a great outlet for many songwriters to let their true feelings out. It’s also a creative way to let your ex know exactly how you feel about them, just ask Taylor Swift. After years of rapper Eminem claiming him and Mariah Carey were once together, Mariah shot back with “Obsessed” in 2009. If these two wouldn’t be entertaining enough, we think Ja Rule as an opening act, could bring the two closer to reconciling after “Like Toy Soldiers” was released.
