It is general knowledge that Justin Timberlake can do no wrong. If you disagree, I kindly invite you to click out of this window and take a moment to reevaluate your existence. Last night, Justin finally took the stage at Montreal’s Bell Centre after a excruciatingly long rescheduling of his shows (8 months and 25 days, to be precise). With his second show tonight, I can promise that the audience will be met with high expectations from JT, I quote “I don’t blow smoke but tonight’s one of the best crowds of the tour so far”. This statement is nothing new to us Montrealers, as we are known for being extremely enthusiastic hosts when it comes to anything music related. That being said, it’s not very difficult to be a good crowd when faced with the legend that is Justin Timberlake. If you were foolish enough to doubt he would deliver an amazing show, you were proven wrong within the first few minutes. If Justin were deemed worthy of one attribute above all else it would be the one of entertainer (and total babe, but that’s for another post).
As you may have noticed, I’m not much of a big arena and elaborate production type of girl. I much rather the small venue, sweaty pit and non-stop jumping around atmosphere that comes with most rock alternative concerts. However, after yesterday night’s 20/20 experience, I find myself being converted to arena tours if they manage to live up to what went down last night. Justin Timberlake and the Tennessee Kids brought us an impeccably engineered set list featuring our favorite old school jams like “Señorita” and “Rock Your Body” as well as newer material from both parts of the 20/20 Experience album like “Let the Groove Get In” and “Murder”. Accompanied by the flawlessness of The Tennessee Kids live band and amazing choreography featuring JT himself, there wasn’t a still body in the room. Timberlake brought the party to Montreal and Montreal couldn’t be more ready to get crazy. After nearly losing hope in this concert when waiting for over a year, all is forgiven and there’s no hard feelings. If you’ve got yourself some tickets for tonight’s second performance or to any other tour date, give yourself a pat on the back for your wise decision and get ready to have the time of your life.
