Justin Timberlake confirms 2014 Australian tour

Justin Timberlake will tour Australia in 2014 as part of The 20/20 Experience World Tour.

Following his co-headlining “Legends of the Summer” American tour with Jay-Z, which wraps up in August, JT will take a few months off before kicking off his first headline tour in six years at the end of October.

So far only the first leg of the 20/20 Experience World Tour dates have been revealed but, according to Billboard, additional shows in shows in North America, Europe, South America, and Australia will be added to the tour schedule. The opening run of dates runs from October until February with shows in Canada and America.

Timberlake’s 2014 Australian visit will be his first since the 2007 FutureSex/LoveSounds tour, which featured 12 arena shows and stops in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. His Justified World Tour also visited the east coast of Australia in 2004 for seven gigs.

After taking seven years to follow up on 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds, Justin Timberlake will be releasing two albums this year. The 20/20 Experience came out in March and yesterday Timberlake confirmed that that he’ll be releasing a sequel on September 30.

“With an average track length of seven minutes and not a banger in sight, The 20/20 Experience isn’t likely to dominate pop radio and teenage house parties in the way that its predecessors did,” Adam Lewis reported when he reviewed the album for FL. “But what Timberlake has crafted is in some ways a more intriguing prospect – a modern pop record imbued with the same effortlessness as Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On and D’Angelo’s Voodoo.”
