Haters gon' say it's fake, but Justin Timberlake's Man of the Woods tour announcement is so real! The "Filthy" singer shared the exciting news on social media Monday morning, along with more information about his upcoming album.
"The outdoors was the inspiration for a lot of these songs," he says in a short video clip. "That's the main idea. The tour will be able to bring the outside in. How can we bring that to life? I want people to see the inspiration for how it ended up sounding. I've never seen that done before — bring the outside in." According to his official website, the tour will kick off on March 13 in Toronto and end on May 30 in his hometown of Memphis, TN.
Presale tickets go on sale Jan. 10 for the first leg of the tour. Fans can also pre-order his fifth studio album, MOTW — which is set to be released on Feb. 2 — two days before his highly-anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show comeback.
Justin has hinted that fans can expect a different JT this time around. "This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but moreso than any other album I’ve written, where I’m from. And it’s personal,” Justin said of his new music. His wife Jessica Biel also gushed about the album, adding, "It feels like the mountains, like the trees, campfires, like the wild west, like now."
The 36-year-old recently teased what people can expect from his Super Bowl performance, which many predict will be a sneak peek at his tour. "It's been a long time since I've had the opportunity to grace the Super Bowl halftime stage," he said. "And to be quite honest, there's a lot going on in the world today. The word unity keeps popping up in my mind, you know. And all the symbolism that everything represents in the world. I feel honored to try to take the opportunity to do something that unifies people." 2018 is officially the year of Justin!
