Why is Justin Timberlake dressed like an Appalachian Trail hiker in the poster for his upcoming Man of the Woods tour? Well, we’re supposed to believe he’s a man who hangs out in the woods, I guess. Which seems unlikely for a guy who just turned up on a Pollstar list of top ten grossing touring performers of the past year, having performed for over a million and a half people. He’s hoping around 16,000 more will turn out for his February 21 appearance at the former Sports Arena, aka Valley View Casino Center, where advance press promises a “360-degree multistage layout featuring an extensive winding walkway simulating a path in the woods, which allows Timberlake and his dancers to get closer to fans on all sides of the arenas.” Yeah, that’s right, dancers in the woods. That, and “cutting edge lasers and 3D projections to bring to life the setlist filled with fresh takes on his slew of hit songs.” Yep, they said “slew.” And a walk in the woods. Could we be looking at an upcoming all-country album?
