Justin Timberlake is bringing the outside in. At least that’s the plan he has for his upcoming Man of the Woods Tour. Just announced on Monday, Timberlake will be hitting the road for a 27-date North American tour, set to kick off on March 13 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The opening date will be JT’s sole Canadian slot on the tour, which will conclude on May 30 in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.
The Man of the Woods tour is Timberlake’s first tour in three years, with his The 20/20 Experience World Tour lasting from November 2013 until January 2015. Much like his upcoming fifth studio album Man of the Woods, which is set to be released on February 2, Timberlake’s tour announcement also comes with a trailer.
Once again using shots of Timberlake running and posing in the wilderness, the singer can be heard in a voiceover at the opening of the trailer.
“The outdoors is the inspiration for a lot of these songs. That’s the main idea. The tour will be able to bring the outside in. How can we bring that to life?” says Timberlake. “I want people to see the inspiration for how it ended up sounding. I’ve never seen that done before: Bring the outside in.”
The new trailer also features footage of Timberlake rehearsing with his dancers and back up singers, as well as wearing a body suit with sensors to shoot his lead music video “Filthy,” which was released on Friday.
Timberlake has yet to confirm whether he’ll be bringing an opening act on tour with him. The Man of the Woods Tour starts just five weeks after Timberlake plays the halftime show at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on February 4.
