The tour for Justin Timberlake's fifth studio album has been expanded to include a Nov. 18 stop at Golden 1 Center, he announced Monday. Presale tickets ranging from $47-$238 plus fees go on sale Tuesday ahead of a May 7 general sale.

Timberlake has released five No. 1 singles and had 19 songs peak in the Billboard Hot 100's Top 10 since 2002, when he broke away from *NSYNC and began recording as a solo artist. He's also starred in movies such as "Friends With Benefits," "The Social Network" and "In Time."
The rustic, flannel-rich "Man of the Woods," however, was released in February to lukewarm reviews. Pitchfork called it "a huge misstep," Esquire dubbed it "a mess" and Stereogum posed the query "Has a pop megastar ever released such a noncommittal shrug of an album?" Rolling Stone, on the other hand, gave "Man of the Woods" 3.5 stars out of five and noted "it's not perfect, but you can't raise a barn without getting your hands dirty."
Timberlake won't be the only big-name artist dropping into Sacramento during the week of Thanksgiving, as Fleetwood Mac announced a Nov. 23 show at Golden 1 Center last week.
Also on Monday, Bonnie Raitt announced she would cancel several summer shows in which she was scheduled to perform alongside James Taylor, including a June 3 show at Golden 1 Center.
