As has been heavily rumoured, Timberlake is set to play Auckland's Vector Arena on October 23 when he brings his FutureSex/LoveShow Tour down under.

It will be Timberlake's first time in New Zealand, and continues a strong run of pop acts to visit New Zealand in recent months - including Pink and Gwen Stefani.

Christina Aguilera, who used to be on the Mickey Mouse Club television show with Timberlake, pulled out of her two concerts at Vector last week due to illness.

Timberlake will perform with an 11-piece band during his critically-acclaimed show.

His second album - FutureSex/LoveSounds - was released last year and has spawned several hits, including Sexy Back, What Goes Around and My Love.

Timberlake started his pop career in boy band *NSync.

Tickets for the show will be available through Ticketmaster.co.nz.
