Justin Timberlake to visit Scotland on UK tour

Hot on the heels of his opinion-splitting performance at the Super Bowl half-time show in Minneapolis last night, Justin Timberlake has announced a UK and world tour that includes a visit to Scotland this summer.

The UK leg of the singer’s Man Of The Woods tour kicks off in Birmingham on June 27, before visiting Manchester, Glasgow, and London. You can see the full tour dates below.

The dates are in addition to a full European tour, which will see the Cry Me A River hitmaker perform live in a dozen cities across the continent.

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

As reported earlier today on AAA Edinburgh, Timberlake’s much-hyped return to the Super Bowl was met with a mixed reaction on social media last night – some people thought it was duller than dishwater, while others thought it was completely dazzling.

JT also performed a piano-led cover of Prince’s I Would Die 4 U, which he sang accompanied by a large video projection of Prince performing the song simultaneously.

“Minneapolis, Minnesota, this one’s for you,” he declared, as images of the late superstar were projected behind him.

It was a tribute to Prince as the Super Bowl was in Prince’s hometown – but the vast majority of fans seemed less than impressed.

Have a listen to Timberlake’s performance below and decide for yourself.
