Justin Timberlake makes live return at pre-Super Bowl gig
Justin Timberlake made his live return in New Orleans last night (February 2) at a pre-Super Bowl gig.

The singer, who unveiled his comeback track 'Suit And Tie' earlier this month, played his first gig since 2007 at a charity concert in the Louisiana city and was joined by rapper Jay-Z during his new single.

According to MTV.com, Timberlake arrived onstage, following a DJ set from ?uestlove, wearing a tuxedo and opened with his first solo single 'Like I Love You'.

In an hour and a half set, the singer performed tracks from his forthcoming new album 'The 20/20 Experience' alongside his more well-known hits, including 'Cry Me A River' and 'Rock Your Body'.

Jay-Z joined the singer towards the end of the show for their collaboration, 'Suit And Tie', before Justin Timberlake introduced Timbaland to the stage to perform 'SexyBack'. You can watch fan-shot footage of the Jay-Z hook-up below.

Timberlake recently announced the release date for his new album 'The 20/20 Experience'. The LP, which is the first new music from the singer-turned actor and MySpace entrepreneur since his second solo effort 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' in 2006, is slated for release on March 19.

Additional details, including album artwork and a tracklisting are still forthcoming, but Timberlake is said to have recorded at least 20 new tracks with Timbaland, who serves as the album’s producer.

On Friday (February 1), meanwhile, it was revealed that Timberlake is set to perform at the BRIT Awards at the O2 Arena on February 20.
