Justin Timberlake at the TU Center

justin timberlake

Announced today: Justin Timberlake will be playing a concert at the TU Center July 16, 2014. Tickets go on sale next Monday (November 18) at 10 am -- they're $48 and up.

Back in the late 1990s if you had predicted that Justin Timberlake -- the guy from 'N Sync with the frosted tips who broke up with Britney Spears -- would end up being a hugely successful solo musical act and actor in 2013, it would have seemed unlikely. The trajectory post-boy band rarely takes such a successful direction. Yet here he is. And Timberlake has even ended up with a public persona that's kinda funny and likable.

WONDERFUL news!!!!!!!!!!

My friends and I have already put it on the calendar after a brief period of screaming and discussing ticket strategies....haha YAYYYY

It's funny, I spent at least a decade brushing him off until I heard him interviewed on Fresh Air a few years back. TOTALLY changed my perspective on this guy. Humble, down to Earth, intelligent, knowledge of music, funny... maybe he's not so bad after all!

...also....

I've realized that who "JT" is depends on your generation. It used to mean "James Taylor". But now, it means "Justin Timberlake".

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
