In what is undoubtedly the most anticipated tour announcement of 2004, Australian fans will be thrilled to hear that superstar Justin Timberlake is confirmed this June for his first ever concert tour of Australia.
At Justin's personal request audiences in Sydney and Melbourne will join him in intimate venues for an unembellished and personal live performance. With a show focusing on the music rather than special effects, fans down-under will be on their feet dancing from start to finish.
The smaller capacity concerts are a new direction for Justin, who recently carried out a limited number of similar shows in the UK and America to wide acclaim. The intimate atmosphere allows him the chance to kick back with his band and interact more with his audience.
Justin's solo debut album Justified (out now through BMG) is certified two times platinum (over 140,000) in Australia alone while his four single releases all scored top ten hits on the ARIA charts. Rock Your Body was a number one hit, Cry Me A River scored the number two spot, while Senorita and Like I Love You reached number six and eight respectively. Internationally Justified has sold over seven million units.
In just one year Justin received two Grammy's, two Brit Awards, three MTV Awards and a MOBO, rock bible Rolling Stone ran him on their cover three times in 2003 alone and then, on top of this, dedicated an entire separate collector's edition. Without doubt, if there is an accolade in music that you can receive with just one solo album under your belt, then Justin Timberlake has secured it. As Q Magazine wrote in their January 2004 cover story," the success of his solo debut [Justified] has established him as the biggest male star in the world."
