Despite tweeting about his postponed Madison Square Garden show on February 19th, Justin Timberlake reigned supreme in New York nonetheless. The Pop crooner tweeted, "Hey NY. There is never an easy way to do this... Unfortunately, I have to postpone tonight's show to Friday due to health reasons. I am truly sorry to everyone that have tickets for tonight. It kills me to have to do this. I hope to see you all on Friday. --JT" Aside from the setback, Timberlake took the stage that Friday, the 21st and gave fans the ultimate "20/20" experience.
New York wasn't the only city suffering from the sudden changes in Justin's tour dates. He recently reached out to his fans in Buffalo, NY and alerted them that he would also be postponing his shows in that city from Saturday, February 22nd to July 9th due to the abrupt schedule change in NYC. Talk about a major jump in dates. One can only hope that Justin gives it his all when the time comes to perform in Buffalo, that's quite a long time to wait.
Amidst his tour and illness, Timberlake showed no signs of poor health when he appeared as a guest on Jimmy Fallon's first week of hosting "The Tonight Show." Among the show's highlights included Justin's witty apology to his Buffalo fans as he said, "I tell you what I'm gonna do. I'm coming back July 9th and you better be ready because we're gonna party hard. That's a guarantee." Another highlight was the hilarious 5th installment of Justin and Jimmy's ongoing musical series, "History of Rap." The duo paid tribute to many artists ranging from LL Cool J, Salt N’ Pepa and N.W.A. to Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Kanye West.
Timberlake's "Tonight Show" appearance aired just moments before his '20/20 Experience' concert performance at Madison Square Garden...talk about true showmanship.
