Singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake will be performing on Hollywood Boulevard today, the second consecutive night of free performances presented by ABC's “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that have shut down a portion of Hollywood Boulevard until Wednesday morning.
Beatles legend Paul McCartney, whose album “New” is due to be released in October, kicked off the season Monday night by making his first appearance on the late-night talk show and then performing some of his greatest hits on the boulevard afterward.
Tuesday's taping begins at 5:30 p.m., with Timberlake's concert starting at about 6:30, according to a representative of the show who asked that her name not be used. Timberlake released his third studio album, “The 20/20 Experience,” in March.
All lanes of Hollywood Boulevard between Orange Drive and Highland Avenue have been closed since 8 p.m. Sunday night and will remain shut until 6 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Los Angeles Department of Transportation.
“These types of events are not unusual — just plan ahead, give yourself more time,” said Jonathan Hui, a DOT spokesman, of the closure.
McCartney and Timberlake fans are jazzed about the open-to-the-public concerts, with some taking to Twitter to express their appreciation.
“Traffic nightmare in #Hollywood 9/23, 24 but can't think of better reason than free concerts w @Paul McCartney & @jtimberlake!” tweeted Rita Tateel, president of the Celebrity Source.
“This is another example of why I wish I lived in Hollywood & not Phoenix,” wrote comedian Mike Simpson in another tweet.
