Grand Rapids — Following wildly successful concerts in North America and Europe, Live Nation has now confirmed that Justin Timberlake’s “Man of the Woods” tour will make a return visit to both Detroit and Columbus with a very special first appearance in Grand Rapids.
The tour which features a “futurist spectacle of sleek angles and high-tech lights” (Commercial Appeal) hits Grand Rapids on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at SMG-managed Van Andel Arena.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Monday, December 17 at 10:00 AM. Tickets will be available at the Van Andel Arena and DeVos Place® box offices, online at Ticketmaster.com, and charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
The show is being praised for its 360-degree multistage layout featuring an extensive winding walkway, simulating a path in the woods, which allows Timberlake and his dancers to get closer to fans on all sides of the arenas. Billboard Magazine said "…whether through impressive choreography or mind-blowing special effects, the singer has always created a mesmerizing experience for his fans on tour -- but The Man Of The Woods Tour takes that to a whole new level.” The performance includes sleek dance numbers, cutting edge lasers and 3D projections to bring to life the setlist filled with fresh takes on his slew of hit songs, from his five chart-topping albums, including “Mirrors,” “Sexyback,” “Suit &Tie,” “My Love,” and the Oscar-nominated “Can’t Stop The Feeling.”
American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public starting Wednesday, December 12th at 10am local time through Sunday, December 16th at 5pm.
Members of The Tennessee Kids Fan Club are also eligible for pre-sale ticket purchase Wednesday, December 12th at 10am EST through Friday, December 14th at 5pm. For complete The Man Of The Woods Tour VIP packages information or to purchase, visit https://vip.justintimberlake.com/
The Man Of The Woods Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring, Wright Entertainment Group, LBI Entertainment & Tennman Touring. The merchandise for the tour was conceptualized and designed by Heron Preston who most recently collaborated with NASA, Nike, DSNY and Virgil Abloh.
In addition to the tour, Timberlake recently announced the release of his book, HINDSIGHT & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me—which will give readers a peek into Timberlake’s creative process through an intimate collection of images from his personal archives that range from childhood to present day. Timberlake fills the book with anecdotes, reflections, and observations on his life and work to give readers more context behind what inspires him and what goes into producing a highly orchestrated live show and tour. The book, which was designed by Michael Bierut and which Timberlake wrote with Sandra Bark, is on sale now everywhere books are sold.
