Justin Timberlake is coming to New Orleans.

The Super Bowl LII halftime performer will play the Smoothie King Center on January 15, 2019.

Ticket pre-sales for fan club members, American Express cardholders and others start on Feb. 14 via Ticketmaster. Any remaining tickets go on sale to the general public starting at 10 a.m. on Feb. 19. 

Ticket prices start at $49.50 and range up to $225, plus service charges.

He last performed in New Orleans in August 2014. 

Timberlake announced additional dates for his The Man of the Woods Tour one day after performing at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota.

During his act Sunday night, Timberlake seemed intent upon involving everyone in the stadium except the Eagles and Patriots. He appeared to try every idea thrown at him in production meetings.

One may have worked well — opening his set in the bowels of the stadium in what was made to seem like a small club — if the performance hadn’t rendered his new single “Filthy” unintelligible.

Timberlake climbed steps out into the stadium, down a runway to a stage while singing “Rock Your Body.” He was constantly surrounded by dancers, enthusiastic musicians and jumping audience members, so much so that it made the star of the show seem small.

He danced on the NFL’s midfield logo, brought out a marching band dressed in tuxedos, gave audience members giant reflecting mirrors, played at a gleaming white piano, had two elaborate stage sets and even climbed into the audience to take “selfies” with a young fan.

Sitting at the piano, he performed a “duet” with the Twin Cities’ late star, Prince, whose image was projected on a giant scrim beside Timberlake. It was a touching tribute, particularly when cameras outside the stadium caught Prince’s insignia in lights, although the song choice of “I Would Die For U” felt unnecessarily macabre.

Timberlake was at his best in his breezy hits “Sexyback” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” which emphasized his appeal as an adept song-and-dance man. It was why the NFL brought him back despite the history with Jackson. In fact, a backlash had grown recently among people who wondered why Jackson seems to be forever punished for the “wardrobe malfunction” while Timberlake skated by.

Perhaps that left him feeling that he had to try too hard to get back into the public’s graces.
