The Inescapable JT
Once Justin Timberlake announced plans to release a new album, it was only a matter of time before he decided to go on tour again. He teased us when it was revealed he and Jay-Z would team up for the Legends of the Summer Stadium Tour, a 12-city jaunt that inexplicably left Cowboys Stadium off the list.
That oversight will be rectified when Timberlake comes to American Airlines Center on Wednesday, December 4 as part of The 20/20 World Experience Tour, a tour that will stop in 23 North American cities and last from October through February 2014.
Timberlake has been darn near inescapable since his musical reemergence, hosting Saturday Night Live for the fifth time, guesting on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for a full week, getting married to Jessica Biel in April and being named one the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine.
The tour is not the only big JT news to come out, though. He's apparently trying to make up for his lack of music production over the past seven years, as he will release a sequel album to The 20/20 Experience on September 30. That album is expected to feature both new songs and reworked versions of old songs.
If the response to his first album of 2013 is any indication, the sequel will likely be a monster, too. The 20/20 Experience has already been certified double platinum, selling more than 2 million copies since its release in March. The first two singles off the album — "Suit & Tie" and "Mirrors" — have made the top five on the Billboard charts, although neither reached No. 1.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, May 13, but you can take part in a pre-sale starting May 7 by becoming a member of Timberlake's fan club The Tennessee Kids or on May 8 if you have a Mastercard.
