Justin Timberlake Bringing ‘Old School Jam’ Benefit Concert to Vegas in October
On Oct. 1, Renaissance man Justin Timberlake will co-host the fourth annual Justin Timberlake & Friends concert. EW reports that the event, christened 'The Old School Jam,' will benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children. So JT, 30, is using his many powers for good. Since JT has won our hearts with his ability to sing, dance, act and laugh, we don't doubt his 'Old School Jam' will be a good time. It's also taking place in Las Vegas, ensuring the fun quotient.
The show is slated to take place at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The show is part of the quadruple threat's weeklong men’s pro golf tournament which also benefits the hospitals.
Comedian Wayne Brady is also on board to co-host with JT. As for the lineup? It's a mélange of artists, personally selected by Timberlake due to the influence they impart on him. Are you sure you're ready for it? Because it's eclectic! It includes Earth, Wind & Fire, Charlie Wilson, Vanilla Ice, the Commodores, the Sugar Hill Gang, Sister Sledge and Color Me Badd. Yo, Vanille Ice and CMB? JT is not ashamed of showing his roots, at all.
Tickets go on sale on Monday, Aug. 15 at 10AM PT. Prices range from $100 to $500. So remember, it's all for a good cause. The past three old school jams have earned over $1 million for the hospitals, so if you want to contribute to a worthwhile charity, this is the way to do it.
