Justin Timberlake's tour-ending shows to be filmed by Jonathan Demme
Justin Timberlake has announced the final tour dates of his “The 20/20 Experience World Tour,” and he’s enlisted some Oscar-worthy help to go out in style.
Announced on his official site, Timberlake will complete his tour at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Timberlake will perform on Jan. 1 and Jan. 2, 2015, though he’ll make another stop at the arena earlier in his tour on Nov. 28. The final tour dates will have one big distinction, however—The Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme will film the performances.
Demme has plenty of experience shooting performers, including a Talking Heads concert film, a Bruce Springsteen music video, and three Neil Young documentaries with concert elements. Demme will direct and film the concerts for an unannounced project.
Timberlake will go back out on tour beginning on Nov. 20 in Oregon, touring 16 other cities. Tickets go on sale for these final performances for the public on Friday, Oct. 24, while a pre-sale for Timberlake’s online fan club the Tennessee Kids has already begun.
