Justin Timberlake Returned To His World Tour Following His DWI And Looked Like He Did ALL Of The Drugs

Jun 21, 2024

Justin Timberlake made his first concert appearance since his recent arrest for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Sag Harbor, New York. The 43-year-old pop star looked like he was on ALL OF THE DRUGS during his  “Forget Tomorrow World Tour” with  at the United Center in Chicago.  This time, he’s bringing a whole new meaning to “rock star lifestyle.” Just days after his arrest for driving while intoxicated in the Hamptons, Timberlake is set to perform in Chicago, looking like he just stepped out of a “Hangover” sequel.

The Arrest: A Rock Star’s Rite of Passage

Timberlake’s arrest on June 18, 2024, was the stuff of rock legend. The 43-year-old pop icon was pulled over for blowing through a stop sign and swerving into oncoming traffic. When the police approached, they found Timberlake with bloodshot, glassy eyes and a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. He reportedly told the officer, “I had one martini and I followed my friends home,” which is now the most rock star excuse since “the dog ate my homework” .

The Legal Drama

After failing multiple field sobriety tests and refusing a breathalyzer, Timberlake was taken into custody and held overnight. He was arraigned the next morning and released on his own recognizance. His attorney, Edward Burke Jr., is gearing up for a vigorous defense, but let’s be honest, Timberlake’s mug shot is already a collector’s item .

The Show Must Go On

Despite the legal hiccup, Timberlake’s “Forget Tomorrow World Tour” is rolling on. He’s set to perform at the United Center in Chicago on June 21 and 22, and fans are snapping up tickets faster than you can say “SexyBack.” Live Nation even released additional seats, proving that nothing sells concert tickets like a good scandal .

The Return: A Sight to Behold

As Timberlake takes the stage, fans are in for a treat. Sporting a look that screams “I partied with Keith Richards,” Timberlake is expected to deliver a performance that will be talked about for years. His slowed speech and unsteady gait might just add a new layer of authenticity to his hits like “Cry Me a River” and “Rock Your Body” .

The Aftermath

Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel, has been spotted on the set of her Amazon series, looking like she’s ready to audition for the role of “long-suffering rock star spouse.” Meanwhile, Timberlake is set to appear in court on July 26, the same day he’s scheduled to perform in Kraków, Poland. Talk about a double booking .

Justin Timberlake’s return to the stage is a testament to the age-old adage: “The show must go on.” Whether he’s crooning his way through “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” or just trying to remember the lyrics, Timberlake is proving that even a DWI can’t keep a good pop star down. So, grab your tickets, Chicago, because this is one concert you won’t want to miss. Just don’t forget to take a cab home.
