“Good things come to those who wait.” The saying was made famous by an old Heinz ketchup ad, but the sentiment surely applies to those who have been tapping their fingers in anticipation of seeing Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience World Tour. JT is no stranger to playing the waiting game—the 20/20 Experience album itself arrived a cool seven years after his massively successful sophomore release, FutureSex/LoveSounds. This week, the pop star made eager fans at Madison Square Garden wait just a little bit longer, as he canceled Wednesday night’s performance due to health reasons (the concert has been rescheduled to tonight).

On Thursday night, Timberlake did his best to make up for it with an energetic 30-song set, running through new material from both volumes of The 20/20 Experience, mixed in with a bevy of earlier career highlights—“Rock Your Body,” “Cry Me a River” and “SexyBack” among them. Enthusiastically supported by the Tennessee Kids—his crew of backup singers and horn players—Timberlake also dropped in covers of Elvis Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel,” Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” and Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison.” And a special bonus for the MSG audience: a rendition of Sinatra staple “Theme from New York, New York” (one of our 100 best NYC songs). With Timberlake dressed to the nines in a tuxedo and bowtie, a Rat Pack tribute seemed only fitting.
