Justin Timberlake fans have several reasons to be happy today, and we can count 11 of them. The first 10 reasons: 10 new songs on the upcoming "The 20/20 Experience" Vol. 2, due out on Sept. 30. The last: a world tour to follow the release.
"The 20/20" tour will come on the heels of "The Legends of the Summer" stadium tour that Timberlake is co-headlining with Jay-Z. Timberlake and Hov will play a pair of shows at Fenway Aug. 10 and 11, but Mr. "Suit & Tie" won't make any additional stops in the Hub on his solo bout around the globe.
