OC Register " ... Working his way across every inch of a magnificent in- the-round stage that grants an up-close experience for those positioned either at center ice or at the goal-ends of the arena, Timberlake was positively commanding from the opening 'FutureSex/LoveSound' through the closing 'SexyBack' ... "
Arizona Republic " ... This wasn't just a concert; it was an event ... and mere in-between-song banter from Timberlake left many only able to respond with deafening, Beatle-mania shrieks ... "
The Press-Enterprise " ... The popping and locking, the otherworldly falsetto, the enthralling stage persona ... Just two albums into his solo career Timberlake has shed the trappings of teen-idol-boy-band cog and emerged as pop music's premier live performer ... "
