Sticking with Hova, Jay-Z is an old pro when it comes to sharing the limelight. There’s last year’s world-beating ‘Watch The Throne’ tour with Kanye West, of course, but before that there was The Home & Home Tour with Eminem. It was named for the fact that they played shows at the home grounds of the baseball teams they follow: Comerica Park in Detroit and Yankee Stadium in New York.
Fleet Foxes and Beach House joined hipster-pleasing forces for a co-headline tour of the UK. It was so impossibly cool it even got its own stop-motion tour advert.

Much talked-about at this year’s Coachella was the decision for Blur and The Stone Roses to switch set times to allow the Britpop band to headline the second weekend. This was always going to be the case, and had nothing whatsoever to do with the Roses’ disappointing crowd on the first weekend.
