It’s been three years since Justin Timberlake was last on tour. But fans don’t have to wait much longer to see the singer perform live. Timberlake announced his “Man of the Woods” North American tour on Jan. 8. The tour starts in Canada on March 13, and fans across the world can get a preview on Super Bowl Sunday when Timberlake headlines the halftime show.
Timberlake’s last tour, “The 20/20 Experience Tour,” took him around the world for 132 dates in 2013-2015. The tour grossed a whopping $231.6 million and, according TicketIQ.com, fans paid an average of $286.89 per ticket for that show. According to Wikipedia, Timberlake was the highest-grossing solo touring performer of 2014.
The ticket price for the “20/20 Tour” was well above the TicketIQ.com $181.04 average price for Timberlake’s “Legends of the Summer Stadium Tour” with Jay-Z in 2013. That show had only 14 dates and was limited to North American cities.
The new tour opens in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre, one of two Canadian venues, before criss-crossing the U.S. The other Canadian date is April 8 in Montreal. The tour makes its U.S. debut on March 18 at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., before heading to New York, through the Midwest, back to Boston, through the West, including a date at Los Angeles landmark The Forum (April 28), and finally to the South in May. The tour winds up in Memphis on May 30.
Timberlake’s Super Bowl halftime performance will mark the second time he’s performed at the NFL’s biggest game. He shared a duet with Janet Jackson at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004. In 2013, he performed the night before the Super Bowl at the “DirecTV Super Saturday Night” event.
The album, for which the tour is named, is set for release on Feb. 2. Tour tickets will be available to the general public beginning later this month.
