Justin Timberlake put on a free concert at the Southern Hospitality barbecue restaurant last night after tweeting an invitation earliery in the day. Southern Hospitality is actually Justin’s own restaurant…. what a great way to get a spike in business! What better way to market your restaurant than to perform a free show there!?
The bar and restaurant was filled to capacity by 9 p.m. for the 11 p.m. show, and fans packed the streets outside. New York’s finest were on hand to monitor the crowd.
Timberlake, 30, took the stage with the rock/hip-hop band FreeSol to perform a few new songs, including a rap ballad called “Don’t Give It Away.” He also treated fans to a soulful a capella performance of “What Goes Around … Comes Around” and finished with another new song, whose chorus was “Your body’s like a fast car/I’ve got the keys.”
The guests included some famous fans, including Kim Kardashian, her sister Kourtney and husband Kris Humphries, and Timberlake’s “beautiful” In Time costar Amanda Seyfried.
Sad you missed the show? You’re in luck – if you can get to New York’s Irving Plaza on time. The singer will take the stage for another free concert with FreeSol, whose album is out on JT’s Tennman Records label, on Thursday, he Tweeted more than a week ago.
Following Wednesday’s 45-minute performance, Timberlake reminded fans about the pre-planned show, asking, “Are y’all coming?”
