Justin Timberlake Announces Monumental Us Tour!

It’s next to impossible to go anywhere these days and not hear about Justin Timberlake.  Between his Super Bowl Pre Game spectacle which marked his highly anticipated return to music, the incredible show-stealing performance at the Grammy Awards, a week-long residency on Jimmy Kimmel, and the constant radio airplay of his current chart topping hit singles, “Suit & Tie” and “Mirrors”- Justin Timberlake is everywhere…and that’s not even the half of it.  With the release of his new album, The 20/20 Experience- which just fell short of going platinum in its first week on the shelves- Justin Timberlake has announced his 2013 Summer Tour plans, and it’s shaping up to be the biggest tour of the year.  Teaming up with his “Suit & Tie” counterpart, Jay Z, Justin Timberlake has announced 14 dates spanning from mid-July through mid-October, which will be bringing this must-see co-headlining run to the biggest stadiums and arenas in North America.  The current tour schedule can be found below.

As he has since the start of this calendar year, newly acquired Pearl artist, Brian Frasier Moore will be bringing his fantastic flair to Justin Timberlake’s awe-striking stage, as he has throughout his impeccable career for some of music’s biggest names.  For Brian Frasier Moore, playing giant, massive sold-out stadiums is nothing new.  Having just spent the last year providing the backbeats for Madonna, and having also toured with the likes of Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Usher, and several other pop superstars, Brian views playing a packed house of 20, 50, or even 100-thousand people as normal an occurrence as most drummer’s view playing the kit in their own garage or basement.   The only difference between Brian and most drummers is his ability to do just about everything imaginable behind a drum kit- tastefully, precisely and flawlessly.  On this absolutely massive run of tour dates with Justin Timberlake, Brian will be banging around on his stunning Reference Series drums, the kit he revealed upon signing onto the Pearl Drums Artist Roster earlier this year.  With the Reference Series, Brian uses the innovative Reference Series Recipe to achieve the preferred and fully-produced tones heard on the 20/20 Experience, with a 20-ply standard Reference Series snare drum to top it off.  Brian’s full specs are as follow:
Reference Series:
