Justin Timberlake - Can't Stop the Feeling!

After a well deserved "Short" vacation, we are back on the net again. I must say, that vacation rocks, big time, even if it was short, it was a great one. Took a trip up north with the family, a really hot summer resulted in lots of swimming, water skiing, bath fun and some nice visits among old friends and acquaintances on the road. Got some real Kentucky Fried Chicken at my buddy in Kramfors, an old American that found his place in life up north in Sweden raising up Huskeys and driving a dog sled. Just before my "Short" vacation started I did some cool shows with Beyonce and Eminem, both that was good in their own way, Beyonce arrived with a huge stage, a lot of dancers and musicians and her husband Jay-Z. Good show with some great Pyro. Eminem used a local stage, not so many extras except for a huge Video wall and some nice Pyro effects ended up to be a really good show.
A few days ago I got a chance to work with Justin Timberlake again. An extreme layout of the stage, cool video layout on rolling screens, not much pyro, big smoke in "Cry Me A River" and some propane on "Campfire" section where the presentation of the band was made and some covers were played. Overall it was pretty good for a pop star, he can certainly entertain his audience.

The Man of the Woods Tour is the sixth and current headlining concert tour by American singer Justin Timberlake. It is in support of his fifth studio album "Man of the Woods" (2018). The tour began on March 13, 2018, in Toronto, Canada.

The tour was first announced in January 2018, and due to demand, additional dates were released soon after. On February 5, 2018, the day following Timberlake's Super Bowl LII halftime show, Timberlake announced European tour dates, as well as second and third North American tour dates. Timberlake will tour Europe after the first North American leg, they will tour North America again starting in the fall. The third North American leg will begin in January 2019.

During a portion of the concert, Timberlake and his band the "Tennessee Kids" sing around a campfire. The "Stage Bar" VIP Experience on the tour includes a bar near the center stage and a drink ticket. A disco dance floor is near the stage, where Timberlake performs "Rock Your Body"

Justin Randall Timberlake (born January 31, 1981) is an American singer-songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer. Born and raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child. In the late 1990s, Timberlake rose to prominence as one of the two lead vocalists and youngest member of NSYNC, which eventually became one of the best-selling boy bands of all time. Timberlake began to adopt a more mature image as an artist with the release of his debut solo album, the R&B-focused Justified (2002), which yielded the successful singles "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body", and earned his first two Grammy Awards.

His critically acclaimed second album FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006), characterized by its diversity in music genres, debuted atop the U.S. Billboard 200 and produced the Hot 100 number-one singles "SexyBack", "My Love", and "What Goes Around... Comes Around". Established as a solo artist worldwide, his first two albums both exceeded sales of 10 million copies, and he continued producing records and collaborating with other artists. From 2008 through 2012, Timberlake focused on his acting career, effectively putting his music career on hiatus; he held starring roles in the films The Social Network, Bad Teacher, Friends with Benefits, and In Time.

Timberlake resumed his music career in 2013 with his third and fourth albums The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, exploring neo soul styles, partly inspired by the expansive song structures of 1960s and 1970s rock. The former became the best-selling album of the year in the US with the largest sales week, and spawned the top-three singles "Suit & Tie" and "Mirrors", while the latter produced the top-ten song "Not a Bad Thing". For his live performances, including the eponymous concert tour for the albums, he began performing with his band The Tennessee Kids, composed by instrumentalists and dancers. Timberlake voiced the lead character in DreamWorks Animation's Trolls (2016), whose soundtrack includes his fifth Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping single, "Can't Stop the Feeling!". His fifth studio album Man of the Woods (2018) became his fourth number one album in the US.

Throughout his solo career, Timberlake has sold over 32 million albums and 56 million singles globally, making him one of the world's best-selling music artists. Often cited as a pop icon, Timberlake is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including ten Grammy Awards, four Emmy Awards, three Brit Awards, and nine Billboard Music Awards. According to Billboard in 2017, he is the best performing male soloist in the history of the Mainstream Top 40. Time named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2007 and 2013. His other ventures include record label Tennman Records, fashion label William Rast, and the restaurants Destino and Southern Hospitality.
