Grammy-nominated French electronic duo Justice has been tapped to headline the 17-date Spring 2008 MySpace Music Tour, March 3 – 31. Diplo, DJ Mehdi, Chromeo, Busy P and Fancy are supporting on select dates.

The tour is the second in a series of MySpace produced and branded concert events slated each fall and spring produced by Live Nation. The inaugural MySpace Music Tour launched last fall and featured co-headliners Say Anything and hellogoodbye, plus Young Love, MySpace Records’ Polysics, Dr. Manhattan and Socratic.

Tickets went on sale today, Jan. 9, on the tour’s website, local ticket outlets and venue box offices.

“MySpace members can connect with and discover an endless amount of bands and music on the site, and the MySpace Music Tour concert series gives us the opportunity to showcase some of the very best in today’s music culture, doing what they do best, for fans across the country,” says Tom Anderson, president and co-founder of MySpace. “Justice has a phenomenal thing going on, and I can’t wait to see them on this tour!”

Justice — Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard — has attracted a rabid following of fans across several continents for their rock-driven electro dance music. The Paris-based pair’s breakthrough debut album, “Cross,” (Downtown/Vice/Ed Banger), is nominated for a Grammy for Best Electronic/Dance Album, and their single “D.A.N.C.E.” also received two Grammy nominations, for Best Dance Recording and Best Short Form Music Video.
