Everyone’s favorite former Ramen noodle-haired boy-band babe turned solo sex symbol and “Filthy” family man (wait, that’s weird) really wants you to pay attention to his new-ish rugged, plaid-wearing, scruffy-faced honky-tonk funk.

Justin Timberlake is kind of having a very un-sexy year due in part to 2018’s dimly received Man of the Woods and his Super Bowl halftime performance (during which he cheaply summoned a Prince hologram on a bedsheet while wearing, like, a 17-piece suit, probably to make amends for his involvement in 2004’s “Nipplegate” with Janet Jackson). Anyway, JT is a DILF now, and even if the Los Angeles Times’ concert review panned his recent performance as feeling like a “rehearsal” (ouch!), if we don’t see for ourselves we might cry ourselves a dang river.



Justin Timberlake will perform starting at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 25 at Little Caesars Arena; 2645 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-7000; 313presents.com; Tickets start at $49.50.
