Justin Timberlake wore his suit and tie and left audiences amazed Thursday night during his sold out concert at the TD Garden. Timberlake kept the audience singing and dancing along the whole night with his high energy show.
Timberlake performed non-stop for 2 ½ hours, and didn’t break a sweat. He performed with ease, never missing a beat or step. Since November 2013, Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience world tour has been putting on concerts across America. The tour will continue over the summer in Europe. This is Timberlake’s third headlining tour, the first time he has been headlining since 2007.
The performance included songs such as, “Suit and Tie,” “Take back the Night”, “Let it Groove”, “TKO”, “Mirrors”, and many more from his 20/20 Experience album. But Justin treated the audience to his old songs “Cry me a River”, “What Goes Around”, “Like I Love You”, “Seniorita”, and the famous “Sexyback”.The singing and dancing stopped only for a brief intermission, (where Timberlake did a costume change) and cracked jokes about New England weather and his band members. When he talked about Boston’s resilience after the marathon bombings, the crowd cheered on even louder than before.
On the stage with Timberlake were the band, The Tennessee Kids, numerous dancers, and back up singers. The back of the stage had a huge white screen that was used for the show’s visual effects, background videos and an impressive light show. The visual effects were one of the highlights of the whole concert. The performances and stage gave a classic appeal, which relates to many of his new songs. He glided through his songs without any hesitations, he looked comfortable on stage and he never slowed down. The whole show was amazing and Timberlake’s performance was exciting and gripping.
Timberlake will return to the TD Garden July 19th.
