Sitting atop the Hot Tours recap dated Jan. 19 (see below) is Justin Timberlake with the first 2019 reports from the Man of the Woods Tour. After taking the late months of 2018 off due to bruised vocal cords, he returned to the stage with a vengeance, grossing $7.4 million from three mid-Atlantic shows from Jan. 4-8 in Washington, D.C., and Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C.
After being named the No. 6 tour of 2018 on Billboard’s Year-End Boxscore rankings, the Man of the Woods Tour crosses the $150 million threshold with a total of $155.5 million and more than 1.2 million tickets sold. Now out of recovery, Timberlake will play a stretch of rescheduled dates before wrapping the tour at Uncasville, Conn’.s Mohegan Sun Arena on April 13.
