Justin Timberlake to Perform in China for First Time

By Andrea Dresdale

ABC/Matt BrownJustin Timberlake may be a worldwide superstar, but there’s a huge part of the world in which he’s never performed — until now. The singer will make his first-ever appearance in China on June 14.

Justin will appear as the special guest of Chinese pop star Wang Leehom at Beijing’s Bird Nest National Stadium, which holds 91,000 people. Their collaboration is described as a “once in a lifetime performance.” A statement posted on Justin’s website notes that he and Wang “share many similarities in their respective markets. Both are actors, songwriters and musicians who dominate pop charts and social media.”

Tickets for the joint appearance are on sale now.
