Justin Timberlake will be performing a solo live concert for the first time in years during Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans, as he’s scheduled to headline DirecTV’s Super Saturday Night concert on February 2. The event will benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children, and Questlove of The Roots will open and close the show with a couple DJ sets.

The next day, Timberlake’s maybe-collaborator Beyonce will perform at the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show. Of course, JT is no stranger to the crazy festivities of Super Bowl weekend: he performed at the big game in 2004, playing an integral part in Janet Jackson‘s infamous “wardrobe malfunction.”
