Tickets for the pop superstar's Tacoma show go on sale later this month.
Justin Timberlake has never left the public consciousness, filling long album droughts with acting stints and his endearing bromance with Jimmy Fallon. But the hype machine has fired up again for JT the musician, who’s back with his first album in five years.
After Timberlake’s exhaustively scrutinized Super Bowl performance, the king of ’00s pop announced a world tour coinciding with his new “Man of the Woods” album. On Thursday, Timberlake added another run of shows that will bring the boy-band graduate to the Tacoma Dome on Nov. 12.
Bloggers clutched their pearls last month when a campfire-burnin’ JT appeared in a woodsy trailer for the album, wondering if the pop star had gone Americana. Ultimately, it was somewhat of a beardo fakeout. Aside from a tune with Chris Stapleton and titling a song “Flannel,” the new record (which has gotten middling reviews) isn’t wildly out of character for the guy who supposedly brought sexy back a decade earlier. Production from longtime Timberlake collaborators Timbaland and the Neptunes likely had something to do with that.
Back in 2014, a tuxed-out Timberlake came to KeyArena on his 20/20 Experience tour, flashing throwback classicism that hinted at his Memphis upbringing and proving himself a consummate entertainer.
Tickets for the Tacoma Dome show range from $53.50 to $254 and go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Feb. 19 through Ticketmaster. American Express and Tennessee Kids Fan Club presales start at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14.
