[artist id="1231683"]Justin Timberlake[/artist] always lines up a star-studded roster for his annual Justin Timberlake and Friends benefit concert in support of the Shriners Hospitals for Children, and this year is no exception.
The October 23 show at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Theatre for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas will feature pal Christina Aguilera, Lady Antebellum, Diddy and his Dirty Money crew , Selena Gomez & the Scene, T-Pain, hip-hop icons Salt-N-Pepa and one of the bands signed to JT’s label Tennman Records, FreeSol.
JT will, of course, perform at the show as well in his only official concert appearance of the year. Tickets for the show go on sale on August 21 and cost between $100 and $350. Last year’s benefit featured appearances by Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, Ciara and TLC.
The event will again be accompanied by the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open golf tournament, which will take place at the TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas from October 21 to October 24. With a purse of more than $4 million, the tournament will feature 132 PGA tour professionals.
Though Timberlake has been lying relatively low on the music scene over the past year, he’s been working hard on the acting side, signing up to portray a “singing booger” on the “Family Guy” spin-off “The Cleveland Show” , filming the flick “Friends With Benefits” with Mila Kunis in New York. He’ll also appear in the David Fincher-helmed movie “The Social Network.” In that flick, he plays Napster co-founder Sean Parker, who had a hand in the launch of the social-media phenomenon Facebook.
