Picture this: Today is a very big day. The most coveted tickets for a global world tour are on sale. I call in sick for work pretending I'm gripped by a mystery flu. My work friends all do the same thing.
The day might be understaffed, but we have other things to worry about.
Today is all about lining up to secure the best seats for a once-in-a-lifetime extravaganza.
The biggest pop star in the world is coming Down Under.
No, I'm not hoping to score Taylor Swift's Eras tickets.
It's 2007 and Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveShow tour is coming to Australia.
I'm not kidding.
In the noughties, Timberlake was widely considered "the world's biggest male pop star", off the back of multiple Grammy awards and years of consecutive chart-topping singles.
This was a vastly different pop culture landscape. Justin Timberlake was untouchable.
