Justin Timberlake concert chronology
  • The 20/20 Experience World Tour
  • (2013–15)

The 20/20 Experience World Tour was the fifth concert tour by American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake. It was launched in support of his third and fourth studio albums, The 20/20 Experience (2013) and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 (2013).[1] The tour began on November 6, 2013 in New York City, and concluded on January 2, 2015 in Las Vegas. The 20/20 Experience World Tour was the second highest-grossing concert tour of 2014, leading the list as a solo artist.[2] It is also Timberlake's highest grossing tour to date and one of the highest grossing tours of the decade.

Critical response[edit]

Since its debut, The 20/20 Experience World Tour has received acclaim from critics. Writing for the New York Daily News, Jim Farber reviewed the opening show at Barclays Center. Farber described the concert as a "study in suave ease. Starting with 'Pusher Love Girl,' Timberlake exuded a sweatless charm."[3] Hillary Rea for The Inquirer noted that Timberlake's performance "kept the audience not just alert, but hypnotized and hooked throughout a 30-song spectacle that ended just before midnight."[4] Fionnuala Bourke in a review for Birmingham Mail opined that Justin "managed to completely keep his cool amid all the screams" and he "proved his position as the President of Pop."[5]

Jon Pareles of The New York Times also gave a positive review noting that he "reveals something darker" and "something more fiery and intense" while performing post-breakup revenge songs such as "Cry Me a River” and “What Goes Around... Comes Around.”[6]

Costumes[edit]

"Justin has great personal style and knows what he wants which makes designing for him an absolute pleasure..."

—Tom Ford

Timberlake has been working with Tom Ford for the tour's costumes.[7] During their collaboration they have created more than 600 costumes for Timberlake and his team.[8] Most of Timberlake's costumes are black and white coloured suits.
