Get out your suit and tie: Justin Timberlake’s debut concert in Israel will be May 28, 2014, in Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon.

PR guru Rani Rahav and his team, at a press conference packed with video, flash and softball questions, announced the details of the pop prince’s much-anticipated concert on Sunday morning.

JT, who will be arriving in the Holy Land from Turkey as part of his 20/20 Experience World Tour, is expected to stay in Israel for two days. The concert is expected to run 90 minutes, and producer Udi Applebaum insists the performance will be standard and match Timberlake’s other global performances during the world tour.

The team was mum on whether or not he will indulge in a bit of sightseeing while here. Neither is there any word yet on who has been booked as his opening act.

Tickets for the show will go on sale at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, January 22, and they won’t come cheap.

Cheap seats at the outdoor Tel Aviv venue will start at NIS 370 ($106), VIP tickets will go for NIS 1,250 ($358), and for big spenders willing to shell out, access to the so-called “Golden Ring” up front will cost NIS 1,450 ($415). Fans can either dial *8780 within Israel, or grab tickets online.

Hardcore JT fans who belong to the Tennessee Kids, Justin Timberlake’s fan club, as well as MasterCard holders, will get early access to tickets, with purchasing open to them on Monday, January 20.
