Justin Timberlake concert chronology

The FutureSex/LoveShow was the third concert tour by American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake. It showcased his second studio album, FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006). The tour grossed $127.8 million. It was the third highest-grossing concert tour of 2007.[2]

SexyBack Dance Club[edit]

A limited number of tickets were released which gave fans access to a bar/club area around the stage known as the SexyBack Dance Club. There were two types of these tickets available; Seating and Standing. The seating tickets gave fans access to this area as well as a seat integrated into the stage itself. The standing tickets gave access to the same area without a seat.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Rolling Stone editor Laura Checkoway, who attended the tour at the Madison Square Garden in April 2007, called the show "strictly grown and sexy" in her review.[4] After attend the second Madison Square Garden date in August, Sia Michel from The New York Times thought "since his last tour, for 2002's multiplatinum Justified, he has learned how to project sex-symbol edge. During an ambitious, well-oiled spectacle of nearly three hours, this New Justin cursed, gyrated and mimicked bedroom acts with his lingerie-clad dancers."[5]
