Justin Timberlake will play his first concert in four years the night before the Super Bowl, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The singer will perform his new single, “Suit & Tie,” as part of “DirecTV Super Saturday Night,” to be held February 2nd in New Orleans.
The invitation-only event, a benefit concert for Shriners Hospital for Children, will also feature DJ sets from Questlove before and after Timberlake’s performance. The concert will take place at DTV SuperFan Stadium in New Orleans.
Timberlake debuted “Suit & Tie” on the new Myspace earlier this month, and this morning released a lyric video for the song, from the singer’s upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, which is due March 19th. The clip flashes lyrics on the screen while Timberlake makes himself correct in an array of well-tailored finer, sits at a piano and puffs on an enormous cigar during Jay-Z’s guest verse.
The album will be Timberlake’s first since FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006. Since then, he’s kept busy with acting roles in movies including The Social Network, Friends With Benefits and last year’s Trouble With the Curve.
