Justin Timberlake Postpones Oakland Show Amid Ongoing Vocal Issues
Justin Timberlake has postponed another show on his Man of the Woods tour due to his ongoing battle with bruised vocal cords. The latest date to fall off the roster is a gig scheduled for Wednesday night (Dec. 5) at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. Promoter Live Nation encouraged fans to hold on to their tickets for the rescheduled date on March 15 at the same venue.
The tour hit a snag in late October, when Timberlake scrapped an Oct. 24 show at Madison Square Garden in New York, after the singer informed fans that "my vocal cords are severely bruised... I'm gonna make this up to you." That postponement was followed by a string of similar push-backs of shows in Buffalo, Tacoma, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Fresno and Portland. A spokesperson for Timberlake could not be reached for comment about whether the upcoming Dec. 8 show in Omaha, Nebraska, at the CenturyLink Center will go on as planned.
As of press time, Timberlake has seven more dates scheduled through the end of the year, with the tour slated to kick off again in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 4.
