Justin Timberlake’s live return set for Super Bowl weekend

Justin Timberlake is set to return to the live concert stage.

Billboard reports Timberlake will perform his first solo concert in several years at a New Orleans charity concert during Super Bowl weekend.

Justin will be the man of the hour at the DIRECTV Super Saturday Night event, being held February 2 at DTV SuperFan Stadium and hosted by Mark Cuban's AXS TV. Questlove of The Roots is DJ'ing before and after Timberlake's set.

The event will benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children and is tied in with the 7th Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl, which as the name suggests is a football game between celebrities. This year, the roster includes Snoop Dogg, Chace Crawford of "Gossip Girl" and Olympian Lolo Jones.

Timberlake’s new single, "Suit & Tie", is expected to hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
