Big Time Rush and Victoria Justice, stars of the Nickelodeon shows “Big Time Rush” and “Victorious” respectively, have teamed for the “Summer Break 2013 Tour.”

The teen pop idols are a natural fit, since they share the same audience – one built not through the formerly conventional method of breaking songs on the radio, but through four seasons of eponymous hit television shows on the tween- and teen-centered network. Like a 21st century version of the Monkees, Big Time Rush has employed its own television series as a means of promoting its musical releases, including the new “24/7,” which hit the streets in June. Justice is following suit – her full-length debut is set for release in late summer.

BTR and Justice bring the “Summer Break Tour” to Darien Lake Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $35 to $79 for reserved seats, $22.50 for the lawn (www.livenation.com, www.ticketmaster.com).
