As the reigning first couple of hip-hop and a symbol of coolness and swagger, the Carters bring their rolling extravaganza into Los Angeles as a carefully if not perfectly polished machine. The tour comes a little more than a year after Jay Z played the same stadium with Justin Timberlake, while Beyoncé sold out two headlining nights at Staples Center. So far, the reviews have pegged this as the show of the summer, with the performance being properly choreographed and honed as the weeks have worn on. Both of their perfectionist personas will be on display, leaving little doubt why they've become the best known power couple in music history. Also Saturday, August 3.
