Netflix To Screen Justin Timberlake Concert This October
Oscar Winning Director films 20/20 Experience Tour Documentary
JT fans can take a front-row seat to the last two shows of his 134-date world concert tour, the 20/20 Experience, by subscribing to Netflix this October. Oscar winning director Jonathon Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Rachel Getting Married) has expertly captured the last two concerts of the tour at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, performed in January 2015.
It was at Timberlake’s insistence that the 72 year-old director got involved. “I basically stalked Jonathon Demme to do this” the performer said before the film premiered at the recent Toronto International Film Festival. Well known for redefining the concert film genre via his 1984 film ‘Stop Making Sense’, when he filmed American new wave band Talking Heads live in concert, and later a series of Neil Young shows, the film doesn’t solely focus on Timberlake. Allowed to shine also are his backing dancers and big band musicians who all get to take center stage, though, according to sources JT proves himself to be a magnetic performer once again.
Just as good as being there? We can’t wait to see it. Check out the trailer to Justin Timberlake and The Tennessee Kids below.
