The 2003 MTV Video Music Awards after-parties will have to wait for Justin Timberlake. The 'N Sync star will head directly from Thursday's (Aug. 28) event at New York's Radio City Music Hall to the nearby Roseland Ballroom for a special concert. Tickets go on sale tomorrow via Ticketmaster.

Timberlake is in the midst of his Justified and Stripped tour with Christina Aguilera, which was briefly derailed earlier this month after a rigging accident in Atlantic City, N.J. More than $1 million in damage was caused to the tour's stage and lighting and video equipment. The trek is now back on the road and will play tonight in Hartford, Conn.

"Senorita," the latest single from Timberlake's Jive solo debut, "Justified," is making gains on several Billboard charts. The cut is up 43-38 this week on the Billboard Hot 100, 31029 on the Rhythmic Top 40 chart and 13-10 on the Top 40 Mainstream tally.

The Timberlake show joins a growing list of VMA-related concerts. On Monday, Lil' Jon and the Eastside Boyz and the Ying-Yang Twins will play a free show at Los Angeles' House of Blues. The following day, Simple Plan and Fountains Of Wayne will perform at Rumsey Playfield in New York's Central Park. Both shows are sponsored by Cingular. On Aug. 27, Iggy Pop and the Stooges will play a Lifebeat benefit at New York's Roseland Ballroom.

While in town to perform at the VMAs, Metallica will play a rare club show Aug. 29 at New York's 500-capacity Bowery Ballroom.
