Justin Timberlake Will Perform in Memphis on a Special 'One Night Only' Free Concert

The pop scene is getting a boost from Justin Timberlake. Days after clearing his Instagram account and thrilling fans with the prospect of a new chapter in his career, the singer revealed plans for a one-night-only homecoming performance in Memphis on January 19 at the 2,300-seat Orpheum Theater.

In an Instagram post about the performance, Timberlake wrote, "Going home," beside a photo of a billboard with the show's details.

The following scroll showcased a preteen JT in a nostalgic film, stating, "This is my hometown—this is Memphis, Tennessee, along the Mississippi River." Along with what appeared to be an itinerary (all other elements censored), the slideshow had a note on "travel to Memphis Jan. 19 – Orpheum" in it.

The last slide featured an audio clip of a mid-tempo, organ-driven song that ends right before the performer begins to sing.

Speculation that Timberlake would soon reveal the highly anticipated follow-up to his enigmatic 2018 Man of the Woods album intensified on Monday when fans noticed that he had deleted all of the posts on Instagram except his profile picture, that showed his eyes gazing back through a car's rearview mirror. The only thing on Justin Timberlake's Instagram right now is the announcement of the show.

Although longtime collaborator Timbaland hinted that "fun" JT was returning with a "bob-your-head" album back in April 2023, Timberlake has not yet announced any new music at the time of publication.

After a period away from the spotlight, Timberlake and his former NSYNC colleagues got back together last year for the Trolls Band Together single "Better Place," which marked their first release in over 20 years. Then, he appeared on the remix of BTS member Jung Kook's solo track "3D" in November.

With a surprise performance at the Fontainebleau in Las Vegas on December 13, Timberlake wrapped out his hectic 2023. This was just his second performance after he had made news with the publication of his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears' candid memoir, The Woman in Me, in October. Before singing "Cry Me a River," Timberlake seemed to speak to Spears.

According to Spears, in the book, she believed JT utilized the song, “…Baby One More Time” as "ammunition" in the legendary music video from 2003. Before beginning the song, Timberlake addressed the audience and said, "No disrespect."

The second track from JT's first solo album, Justified, is "Cry Me a River," which was inspired by Timberlake's divorce with Spears. In the music video, JT is shown bursting into the home of his ex-girlfriend, with a Britney impersonator playing his former flame.


"Tickets are free, non-transferable, and must be picked up with a matching ID at the venue on the night of the show," according to Ticketmaster's instructions. A individual is only allowed to have two tickets.
