Justin Timberlake delivered his fifth studio album Man of the Woods earlier this month, and while the release accumulated mixed reactions from fans and industry insiders alike, success quickly ensued — topping the Billboard 200 chart, while racking up monstrous numbers for his upcoming tour. Timberlake has done well to amp up the hype — teasing tracks here and there to close out 2017, not to mention performing at Super Bowl LII in a pair of Air Jordan 3 “JTH,” no less.
According to Variety, Arthur Fogel, president of global touring for Live Nation had this to say about JT’s remarkable tour figures:
“We’ve got 50 shows on sale in North America and 16 in Europe, and we’re over 700,000 tickets [sold] and $100 million gross.”
“It’s pretty staggering. We’re into our third shows in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Toronto; We’re into doubles in probably a dozen markets. It’s huge.”
