Justin Timberlake Postpones Concert; Offers ApologyBy: Brian Powell - February 24, 2014
Whether you admit it or not, you are a fan of Justin Timberlake. Hell, everyone is – whether it be a deep fandom rooted in his N’Sync days or a recently found admiration of the new and improved classy-version of JT; Justin Timberlake is one of the hottest tickets in show business today.
Thus, whenever Timberlake announced that he must reschedule his Wednesday night show at Madison Square Garden due to health reasons, thousands of fans were extremely disappointed:
Unfortunately for fans, JT’s rescheduling of his concert at MSG on Wednesday day also forced him to reschedule a concert in Buffalo previously scheduled for Sunday: “I thought everyone who played hockey was still in Sochi, but apparently they come back pretty soon and the Buffalo Sabres… we have to deal with so many schedules… and so I had to move the show, like, all the way to the summer. I feel really bad.”
Timberlake felt so bad, in fact, that he offered a public apology to the city of Buffalo during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Friday night:
(Here is a convenient transcript of his apology for those of you unfortunate enough to not have access to sound):
“Hi, Buffalo. I’m Justin Timberlake and I want to say I’m sorry for postponing my concert this Saturday. And I know what you’re thinking: ‘I don’t want an apology, I want a concert.’ Trust me, I hear you Buffalo. But there’s no reason to raise your voice. We’ve got a good thing going, and I don’t want to mess that up. So I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. I’m coming back July 9th and you’d better be ready. Because we’re going to party – we’re going to party hard. That’s a guarantee. And if for some reason, you’re not satisfied, Jimmy Fallon will come to your house and give you a full body massage. I’m talking hot stones, wax, everything! So I’ll see you this summer, Buffalo!”
JT and Fallon followed-up the apology with their version of the “History of Rap: Part 5.” Last March, fans of Fallon might have thought they had seen the last of such antics from Fallon and Timberlake after JT stated that “…this is the last time,” when Fallon asked if he would perform the skit with him once again, to which Fallon responded, “Until the next time we do this.”
Timberlake and Fallon are known for their variety musical skits, such as their Evolution of End Zone Dancing:
All of these routines make one wonder when JT and Fallon will go meta-skit and film an evolution / history of their oddly, and sometimes awkwardly, close relationship. Only time will tell.
