Justin Timberlake partners with Verizon to give back to fans


Justin Timberlake is giving fans the chance to get up close to him after partnering with U.S. telecommunications company Verizon.

The SexyBack singer is currently on his new Man of the Woods Tour, which is taking in dates around America before heading to Europe for the second leg of gigs.

Justin says when he was asked by the phone company to be a part of its new rewards program Verizon Up, he couldn’t say no.

“My favorite part of being on tour is getting to see my fans up close and give them a night they won’t forget,” Justin said in a statement. “When Verizon approached me with the opportunity to thank them by providing special access to my tour, I couldn’t pass it up.”

Maroon 5, Luke Bryan and Demi Lovato have also signed up, and will be giving their fans the chance to get closer to their idols with stage side tickets and meet and greets.

On why he got involved, country star Luke smiled: “My fans are the most loyal around and I couldn’t be more thankful for them.”

Verizon Up members will also have a chance to meet Interscope Records recording artists Rae Sremmurd, Daya, Skylar Grey, Rich the Kid, Kali Uchis and X Ambassadors.
