Justin Timberlake extends Las Vegas Strip tour stop

Updated February 2, 2024 - 2:12 pm

Justin Timberlake has added a second show to his next swing through Las Vegas.

The new “Forget Tomorrow” tour performance at T-Mobile Arena is May 11, announced Friday morning by concert promoter Live Nation. Timberlake has sold out his first scheduled date on May 10. Tickets for the new date are on sale 10 a.m. Pacific time Feb. 9 at AXS.com.

Timberlake this week sent a ripple through pop culture during a show in New York marking his 43rd birthday. “I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to absolutely (expletive) nobody,” Timberlake said from the stage as the band played his 2013 Jay-Z collaboration “Holy Grail.”

Fans surmised Timberlake referred to a statement from Britney Spears, whom he dated for three years ending in 2002, after she offered an apology to him on Instagram.

Spears’ post has since been deleted. She had accused Timberlake of cheating on her in her “The Woman in Me.” She later said “I wanna apologize for some of the things I wrote about in my book. If I offended any of the people I genuinely care about, I am deeply sorry,” Spears captioned an Instagram post of Timberlake on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” But the two pop stars are, again, at odds.

Cool Hang Alert

A new show, a new concept and a new venue is being presented at the Rio. “This Next Tune …” co-stars Dennis Blair and Stephanie Calvert from 8:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m. at the just-launched LobbyBar. This is at the lobby (of course) at the hotel’s main entrance. No cover.

Blair opened for George Carlin for the last 18 years of Carlin’s career and before that was theopener for Rodney Dangerfield and Joan Rivers. Blair is also a gifted singer/songwriter and willdisplay those skills at these shows.

Calvert has been a premier rock vocalist for years in VegasVille, formerly with Raiding the RockVault and Starship with Mickey Thomas. She and her husband, Chris Marion of Little River Band, have also been “gigging” around town, to use industry-speak.
