Justin Timberlake has announced five UK dates for March and April 2014 as part of his 20/20 Experience World Tour.

The first of his UK shows is in Sheffield on 30 March followed by gigs in London, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham.

The 32-year-old singer's latest album The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2 was released in the UK on 30 September.

It's the second part of a double album which came out earlier this year.

It's not my first rodeo. It's my favourite part of what I get to do is to be on the road

Justin Timberlake recently played at the iTunes Festival at London's Roundhouse and performed a special live lounge show as part of Even More Music Month on Radio 1.

During the session with Fearne Cotton the former 'N Sync singer was asked about his fans in the UK.

"We've grown up together," he said. "I think the first time I came over here [the UK] as a solo artist I was 21, something like that. So, we're all adults now right?"

Justin Timberlake, who says he had too many new songs not to do a double album, was also asked if he was daunted by the upcoming world tour which starts in America in October.

He said: "It's not my first rodeo. It's my favourite part of what I get to do is to be on the road.

"That's the real pay-off. You spend all this time making all these songs and then you put them out and obviously you have no control over them at that point and getting to go on the road is the reward I think."

Tickets are on general sale at 9am on 4 October.
