Fresh from Superbowl, Justin Timberlake announces UK dates
Following the release of his highly anticipated album, The Man of the Woods, and his epic Pepsi Super Bowl half-time performance in America in front of millions of TV viewers, Justin Timberlake has announced that he is embarking on a UK and European tour that will include an appearance in Birmingham.
European dates for Justin's The Man of the Woods Tour will kick off on June 22 in Paris and make 16 stops including across Europe and the UK, with a much anticipated appearance at Birmingham's Arena Birmingham, formerly the Barclaycard Arena, on June 22 before performances in Manchester, Glasgow and London during July.
