Box office counts have been reported from the first five weeks of Justin Timberlake’s new world tour in support of Man of the Woods, his latest album released in February. Grosses totaling $36.6 million earn the pop superstar the No. 1 ranking on Billboard’s latest weekly recap of Hot Tours (see below) based on 255,780 sold tickets at 16 shows. 

The Live Nation-produced tour — dubbed the Man of the Woods Tour — is booked through the end of next January with treks through both North America and Europe. It began with performances on March 13 and 15 at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, the first of 27 arenas in U.S. and Canadian cities scheduled through June 2. United Center in Chicago produced the top box office results during this opening string of 11 venues. The arena logged a two-night gross of $5.3 million, based on a total attendance count just over 33,000 for shows on March 27 and 28.

T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Boston’s TD Garden and Bell Centre in Montreal have also hosted the tour for two nights. Madison Square Garden was originally booked for two shows during the tour’s opening leg, but a March 21 event at the New York arena had to be postponed due to a heavy snowstorm. It was rescheduled in October during the tour’s fall trek.

In addition to jaunts through North America this spring, this coming fall and next January, Timberlake will also take the Man of the Woods Tour to Europe this summer. Kicking off with a three-show stint in Paris on June 22, 23 and 25, the European leg will run through late August. The tour will visit 10 countries with shows planned in 18 cities, 11 of which will host the tour for two nights. Paris is the only market that has three performances scheduled.

The Man of the Woods trek marks Timberlake’s first major touring effort since his 20/20 Experience World Tour that spanned 14 months beginning November 2013. That tour visited five continents, racking up $232 million in revenue from 1.9 million sold tickets at 128 concerts. Overall grosses from the current tour could potentially reach as high as $275 million by the time it wraps. With 112 concerts booked worldwide, overall attendance could be close to the 2 million mark based on sold ticket tallies at the venues that have already hosted the tour.
