You know what they always say about Justin Timberlake? That he’s a man of the woods.
Actually, I have no idea if that’s true — not a big fan — but many people are thus may be interested to know he’ll return to Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena on his “The Man of the Woods” Tour on March 31.
The pop superstar, who, I’m led to believe, already brought sexy back, possibly including when he played The Q in December 2013, will be on the road to support his next album, “Man of the Woods.” It drops Feb. 2.
“The new material will give a self-reflective look at his journey into fatherhood,” concert promoter Live Nation states in a news release, “and offer up personal insight into his layered life experiences.”
That sounds great.
Tickets the Cleveland show on the tour — which starts March 13 in Toronto and hits 27 cities — go on sale Jan. 22. However, American Express Card Members get early access, being able to scarf up tickets starting at 10 a.m. Jan. 17. (As as long been the case, there is nothing more rock ’n’ roll than a partnership with a credit card company.)

If you need a taste of JT to tide you over till the show, he is set to headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show during the big game on Feb. 4.
Sounds like the ideal time to go on a pizza run.
Stream of the week: To be honest, I’ve been to busy devouring my pick from last week to really get into something else, but have taken a couple of more runs at the enjoyable full-length debut from Michigan rock act Greta Van Fleet, “From the Fires.” The album was released in november and adds on to the four tracks from the EP dropped in April, “Black Smoke Rising.” When you listen to the band, you’d estimate the hours the members have listened to the music of rock gods Led Zeppelin at roughly 100 million. There is some serious Robert Plant aping by lead singer Josh Kiszka on killer tracks “Safari Song,” “Edge of Darkness,” “Highway Tune,” “Flower Power” and others. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It also can be pretty entertaining, as Greta Van Fleet proves. Unfortunately, many of us missed the band’s Grog Shop show in August. They’re next listed Ohio gig is a slot during Rock on the Range in Columbus on May 18.
Mark Meszoros, has never — and apparently will never — forgiven Justin Timberlake for NSYNC. Follow him on Twitter @MarkMeszoros.
