JUSTIN Timberlake is set to return to the stage.

The 'Suit & Tie' singer - who released his first new single in six years earlier this month - has confirmed he will perform live for the first time in more than five years a pre-Super Bowl party next month.

The 'Friends with Benefits' actor - who married his girlfriend of four years Jessica Biel in Italy in October - will appear at an invite-only charity bash, which will benefit the Shriners Hospitals For Children - hosted by cable company DirectTV, at the DTV Superfan Stadium in New Orleans on February 2.

The concert comes just weeks after the six-time Grammy Award winner - who took a break to focus on his acting career - released his new collaboration featuring Jay-Z and confirmed he plans to release his third album 'The 20/20 Experience' later this year.

Justin, 31, wrote an open letter to his fans announcing 'Suit and Tie' and talking about his inspiration and the making of the album.

He wrote: "So, here goes: This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the 'grapevine,' I'm gearing up for a big 2013.

"Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now, my next journey with that thing I love called MUSIC (sic).

"The inspiration for this really came out of the blue and to be honest, I didn't expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs.

"It was probably the best time I've had in my career... Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process (sic)."

The 'SexyBack' hitmaker previously hit the headlines at the Super Bowl in 2004, when he ripped off part of Janet Jackson's corset while performing the high profile half time show and exposed her breast.

He was later forced to apologise at the Grammy Awards for the controversial "wardrobe malfunction".
