Secrets From The Experts: Inside 2 Years Of Justin Timberlake’s Epic ’20/20′ World Tour


-By Rosalia Cefalu

It’s February 11th, 2013. Only a month prior, Justin Timberlake had announced his first album release in seven years, a move that sparked shrieks and trembles in the homes and offices of fans worldwide.
