A tour titled Justified and Lovin' It Live was included with the deal, following his initial Justified World Tour.[3] For the release of his sophomore record FutureSex/LoveSounds, Timberlake embarked on his second worldwide tour FutureSex/LoveShow in 2007, which eventually became the third highest-grossing concert tour of the year. During the tour, he visited Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania.

In 2013, Timberlake took part in his second collaborative tour, Legends of the Summer, in which he was co-headlining with rapper, frequent collaborator Jay Z.

This made Timberlake the highest-grossing solo touring artist of the year. Timberlake's televised performances include his debut at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, the controversial Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show as a guest act, his comeback performance at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, his medley number at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, and several appearances on Saturday Night Live.
