Pop superstar Justin Timberlake is planning to quit touring for good after one final global trek.
The SexyBack hitmaker last hit the road for the FutureSex/LoveShow, spending almost the whole of 2007 performing to fans across the globe.

He has since taken a step back from his music to concentrate on his acting career with roles in movies such as The Social Network and the forthcoming Bad Teacher and Friends With Benefits.

Timberlake has yet to start working on a follow-up to his 2006 release FutureSex/LoveSounds and, although he hasn’t given up on pop just yet, he admits he can’t imagine touring for much longer since turning 30 in January.

Asked whether he plans to release another album soon, he tells Vanity Fair magazine, “I really don’t know. I wouldn’t say I’m not going to put out another one. I would say that would be a bad bet, if you were betting. But I could see myself only doing one more big tour.”

Timberlake is currently enjoying a rare long break in his schedule and insists he’s enjoying doing nothing – because it gives him the space to do whatever he wants.

He says, “Right now, I’m not in the mood to work. I want to not have a schedule. I want to go to the Dodgers (baseball) game if I feel like it. ‘Hey, do you guys want to play basketball today? Cool, let’s do that.’ I’ve never really given myself the opportunity to be spontaneous.

“I figure I can go on like this until the end of the year. I don’t have anything I have to do. The only job I have to do is promote the films that are coming out, and I’m really looking forward to that. It will be fun. I’ll get to go to a bunch of countries, hang out.”
