Timberlake concert to partly close Hollywood Blvd. for second day

September 24, 2013|By Angel Jennings

Drivers who dealt with the traffic mess caused by a partial closure of Hollywood Boulevard for Paul McCartney’s concert Monday night would do well to remember an alternative route for Tuesday. This time, the stage will belong to Justin Timberlake.

The free concerts are being put on by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” outside the show’s studio, closing down a roughly quarter-mile stretch of Hollywood Boulevard between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive.

Thousands of fans who were able to secure tickets for the outdoor staging area turned out Monday to hear McCartney play a mix of classics and fresh material as the ex-Beatle promotes a new album. Timberlake, also promoting a new album, is set to take the stage Tuesday evening.

Fans interested in seeing Timberlake up close can still get on a waiting list online. For those who don’t secure tickets, fans can still line the sidewalks, as many did for McCartney Monday night.

As for the street closure, crews plan to tear down the staging and reopen Hollywood Boulevard in time for the Wednesday morning commute.
