Friday, Dec. 5

Only a year ago, Justin Timberlake’s name was on every tongue in Tulsa. The suave entertainer and inheritor of soulful suit-and-tie appeal was set to play the BOK Center. Hotel rooms booked up, and fans – dressed to emulate the sophisticated vibe of Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience album – went out on the town to live the good life. Tulsa welcomed it and talked about it for days after the final encore. Oklahoma City is hoping to repeat the experience when J.T. brings his extended 20/20 Experience World Tour to the Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave., this month. Oklahoma City is one of several major cities added to the tour “due to popular demand.” Timberlake goes on stage at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 5. Tickets are available for $49.50-$175 at www.chesapeakearena.com, but if his 2013 Tulsa show is any indicator, don’t be surprised if the remaining passes are swooped up quickly.
