Justin Timberlake to bring '20/20 Experience World Tour' to UK in 2014
Singer confirms plans from the stage at Capital FM's Summertime Ball yesterday (June 9)
The singer made the announcement onstage at the Capital FM Summertime Ball at London's Wembley Stadium yesterday (June 9). Answering questions fans sent in via Twitter, Timberlake confirmed that he would bring his '20/20 Experience World Tour' to Britain in the new year. Timberlake's first international solo tour in six years kicks off in Montreal, Canada on October 31 and North American dates currently run through until February.
Timberlake performed a short acoustic set for the 80,000 strong crowd at Wembley, comprising material from his new album plus classic hit 'Cry Me A River'. Other artists who played at the Summertime Ball included Taylor Swift, Jessie J, Robbie Williams, Olly Murs, The Saturdays, Disclosure and Duke Dumont.
Timberlake's label has recently confirmed that he will release a new album in September - just six months after he returned with 'The 20/20 Experience', his first collection of new material in seven years. The record will reportedly include 10 new songs and outtakes and is due for release on September 30. The singer was recently pictured in the studio alongside Jay-Z, Nas and Timbaland working on an as yet unknown project.
Timberlake will also be joining Jay-Z on his 'Legends Of The Summer' stadium tour, which includes a headline appearance at this year's Yahoo! Wireless Festival in London. The event takes place between July 12-14 at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
