The musical rumor mill always starts running right after the Grammys. This year’s big one? A tour with the throne holders of hip-hop and pop r&b.

The New York Post’s Page Six originally reported the rumor that Justin Timberlake would go on a 10 city arena tour together.

It seems to make sense, considering how cozy the two royal families were at the Grammys. In addition to their live performance at the awards show, Timberlake was joined by Hova again for “Suit & Tie” during a post-show performance, and the two were together to perform in New Orleans right around the Super Bowl (you’ll recall Beyonce was the halftime act).

So what does this mean for Connecticut? Well, that depends on the rumor.

Let’s face it, a full blown tour would bode much better for the Nutmeg state. A tour of only ten cities would see Barclays Arena in New York (Jay-Z owns the place after all) and MAYBE a show at Boston’s TD Garden.

A full tour would likely bring a stop to Connecticut, with the most probable venues being the XL Center (highest seat capacity in the state) or Mohegan Sun (Jay-Z and Kanye performed here two years ago, and Beyonce has a tour stop in August).

Timberlake does have a new album coming out March 19, so if a tour of the dynamic duo doesn’t come to the state, we can still hope for a JT solo stop.
