If you are lucky enough to have scored tickets to one of the Justin Timberlake concerts – well done. It looks like a sell-out at Vector Arena on October 12 and 13 with some tickets still available for the October 15 gig.
Seven years on from his stunning run of shows in 2007, Justin Timberlake returns to top off some amazing achievements. After dominating the global charts in 2013 with the year’s best selling album, The 20/20 Experience, and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, Timberlake has mounted some electrifying live shows on his global tour.
In addition to gracing the cover of GQ’s 2013 Man of The Year issue, Timberlake recently took home three Grammy Awards, including Best R&B Song (Pusher Love Girl), and three American Music Awards, including Favourite Pop/Rock Male Artist. The 20/20 Experience has been well received critically, and is the year’s best selling album with over 4 million sold to date worldwide. The album marks Timberlake with the biggest male debut in five years as well as the biggest digital debut in U.S. history by a male artist. The 20/20 Experience held the #1 spot in both the Top 200 (3 weeks) and R&B album chart (10 weeks). In just its first week of release, all 10 tracks charted on the digital songs chart and have sold over 7 million tracks in the US. The album has reached platinum status in three other countries as well as gold status in nine other countries.
“With his hair slicked back, wearing Tom Ford clothes — Mr. Timberlake was every bit the 21st-century entertainer, a song-and-dance man with subwoofers.”
- New York Times
“His showmanship, class, and impeccable ease in which he can deliver an over two-hour set of music that barely allows for any time to sit, breathe or falter all boiled to those final moments as he let the fans sing back to him a song that, within its barely developed young life, has already budded into its own kind of icon, just like its creator.”
