Justin time: Timberlake brings Man of the Woods tour to San Diego

Sure, Justin Timberlake grew up in a musical household, appeared on Star Search and the All-New Mickey Mouse Club before even hitting his teens, and was also part of the massively successful boy band *NSYNC.

But his storied career beyond that has eclipsed even the wildest of expectations.

The 10-time Grammy winner has already sold 35 million solo records, seen all four of his studio albums go platinum and been named as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World — twice!

And that’s all in addition to fostering a successful acting career, writing a memoir and more than dabbling in both business and philanthropy.

His latest album, Man of the Woods, was released two days before he headlined the halftime show of Super Bowl LII last year, and the accompanying tour of the same name has been seen by almost 2 million attendees and counting.

Fun facts

  • Some of Timberlake’s cast mates on the All-New Mickey Mouse Club included future girlfriend Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Ryan Gosling, Keri Russell and JC Chasez. 
  • Timberlake has performed with many of music’s biggest stars, including Sir Elton John, Madonna, Beyoncé, Chris Stapleton, Christina Aguilera, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Snoop Dogg, Britney Spears and the infamous Super Bowl “wardrobe malfunction” with Janet Jackson.
  • Thanks to bruised vocal chords and strict doctor’s orders to rest, Timberlake appeared with good friend Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show last November in an interview where he didn’t speak a single word.
