Justin Timberlake announces Man of the Woods tour with new video
If you’ve always wanted to see the former NSYNC member live, now’s your chance.
On Jan. 7, 2018, Justin Timberlake officially announced that he’ll be going on tour to perform songs from his upcoming record, Man of the Woods. In a trailer for the tour, the 36-year-old explained, “The outdoors is the inspiration for a lot of these songs. That’s the main idea,” adding, “The tour will be able to bring the outside in. How can we bring that to life?”
Showing footage from past concerts and rehearsals, Timberlake noted, “I want people to see the inspiration for how it ended up sounding.” He continued, “I’ve never seen that done before—bring the outside in.”
According to Timberlake’s website, the singer will kick off his Man of the Woods tour in Toronto on March 13, 2018. Days later, he’ll make his way to the States, stopping first in Washington, D.C. on March 18. He’ll later conclude his North American tour in his hometown of Memphis, Tenn. on May 30.
As Nicki Swift previously reported, Timberlake released the first single from his fifth studio album, “Filthy,” on Jan. 4, along with a brand new music video. Just days earlier, he’d teased Man of the Woods with a video introducing the concept of his new record. “This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written, where I’m from,” Timberlake explained. “And it’s personal.”
Timberlake, who’s slated to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 2, has since released the track list for his album.
Man of the Woods is scheduled for release on Feb. 4.
