Justin Timberlake returns to Verizon on Monday

Justin Timberlake 20 20 Experience 510x510

After taking a seven-year hiatus from music, the now-proven movie star and superb Saturday Night Live host came charging back in a big way in 2013, with not one but two albums in his The 20/20 Experience. Yes, it’s true both sets were a bit half-baked, and more evidence he’s not as inspired and driven by music as he used to be, such as when he gave us 2006’s Future Sex/Love Sounds, a brilliant, meticulous exercise in pushing pop’s boundaries yet remaining accessible. That said, The 20/20 Experience is also evidence that he remains one of the most talented of today’s pop superstars. And he’s still a consummate performer. Monday, Feb. 24, at the Verizon Center, 601 F St. NW. Tickets are $52.50 to $178. Call 202-628-3200 or visit
