Justin Timberlake announces massive UK and world tour

The singer is following his divisive Super Bowl performance with a trek around the globe

Justin Timberlake has announced a UK and world tour in support of his latest album ‘Man Of The Woods‘.

The singer performed at the Super Bowl halftime show last night (February 4) in Minneapolis. He was joined by the projected image of Prince during a cover of ‘I Would Die 4 U’, causing a divided reaction amongst viewers.

The UK leg of the ‘Man Of The Woods’ tour will begin in Birmingham on June 27, before visiting Manchester, Glasgow, and London. The dates are in addition to a full European tour, which will visit 12 cities across the continent.

Timberlake has also added more dates to his previously announced North American leg of the tour, adding 31 new shows across the United States and Canada.

Tickets for the UK dates will go on sale on February 12, with an American Express pre-sale running from 10am on February 8 through 5pm on February 11.

Meanwhile, a young fan at the Super Bowl has become the toast of the internet after he appeared to stare at his phone while Timberlake performed the halftime show next to him.

The fan, later identified as 13-year-old Ryan McKenna, had taken a selfie with Timberlake only moments before – and was understandably staring at the photo when the cameras focused on him.

But to casual observers, it appeared as if he wasn’t entirely enamoured with Timberlake’s performance, prompting his unlikely transformation into a meme.
