Timberlake’s outing launches Wednesday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The Weeknd will appear on the tour’s first six dates, which include Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Nashville.

The Weeknd just wrapped a sold-out headlining tour, which included a two-date stint at the Greek Theatre.  In February, Tesfaye will join Drake for the European leg of the rapper's Would You Like a Tour arena trek.

Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience will stop at Staples Center on Nov. 26 and the Honda Center on Nov. 27. The pop singer will also be one of the first acts inside the revamped Forum when it opens in January when his tour returns for a second leg on Jan. 20.
