Justin Timberlake has agreed to perform in London - his first UK gig in two years - next month as part of Capital FM's Up Close with Coca-Cola series
Justin Timberlake is set to play his first UK gig in two years.
The 'Can't Stop The Feeling' hitmaker - who last graced British soil for a concert in 2014 - will perform a show, hosted by Capital FM, at indigo at The O2 in London on October 3.
He said: "I love London and I love Capital. London is one of my favourite places in the world to perform because the crowd is always amazing. I always miss the UK when I'm away and I'm so happy to fly in for Capital listeners - see you soon, London!"
The radio station is putting on a number of shows as part of the new Capital Up Close with Coca-Cola series, where listeners are brought closer than ever to the world's most famous stars at an intimate venue, and Justin is the first big name to be nabbed. Ashley Tabor, Global's founder & executive president and Capital's managing editor, explained: "Renowned for his showmanship and standout performances, Justin is one of the world's biggest solo artists and no stranger to selling out stadiums right across the globe. We've created Capital Up Close to give music fans the chance to see the world's biggest artists up close and personal and I'm so pleased we're kicking the series off with one of the most talent and inspirational musicians in the world, Mr. Timberlake. This is going to be one incredible show!"
Meanwhile, it seems Justin - who has also made a name for himself in the acting industry - is on a mission to throw himself back into his music as he recently teased that he and his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears, whom he dated for three years in 1999, are hoping to collaborate on a new song in the future.
Asked if he had heard Britney has requested to work with him, Justin - who has 17-month-old son Silas with his wife Jessica Biel - said recently: "She did? Sure! Absolutely, absolutely.
"I have a 17 month old so I don't get the headline news. I apologise for not being in the know ... I'm accessible, give us a call!"
