Justin Timberlake Announces Additional U.S. Outing

In order to satisfy his fans and their “overwhelming demand” for more and more shows, Justin Timberlake has booked his third run of 2014 North American dates. The latest set of gigs will keep him on the road through December.

The pop star is in the middle of a U.K. excursion as he takes his “20/20 Experience World Tour” around the globe in support of his 2013 releases – The 20/20 Experience and its follow-up, The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2.

One of The Telegraph’s reporters caught Timberlake’s show at London’s The O2 last week, writing “The 33-year-old gave a two-hour masterclass in the art of arena performance: all soaring vocals, choreography, stagecraft and immaculate pacing.” The newspaper added, “Timberlake seemed like the lovechild of Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson, with a dash of Purple Rain-era Prince added by the rocking live arrangements.”
