It’s Fourth of July weekend and that’s good news for Beyonce and Jay-Z and New Edition fans. Instead of chilling on a beach somewhere, these hard-working artists are both making tour stops this weekend.

Jay and the Mrs. will be in Philly and Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Johnny, Bobby and Mike will be down in South. If that’s not enough for you, the BET Awards repeats and of course, there’s the annual Fourth of July Macy’s fireworks concert hosted this year by Nick Cannon.
