The singer has vowed that he will continue with his tour despite his legal troubles, with his two shows in Chicago later this week set to go ahead.

Now, it’s been revealed that tickets for one of Justin’s shows in Pennsylvania on July 4 are available for as little as $11 (£8.67) on the resale site Seatgeek.

The tickets, which are for seats at the top-right section of Hersheypark Stadium are among others for the same section, which are priced up to $19 (£15) each.

Other tickets for Justin’s show are also available from primary retailing Ticketmaster, though they are priced far higher at $55 (£44).

Justin’s next show is scheduled to take place at Chicago’s United Centre on June 21, and he will play two nights at the venue before heading to Madison Square Garden in New York next week.

It was reported on Wednesday that Justin apologised to his tour crew in a lengthy conference call, after his arrest sparked concern that is upcoming shows would be called off.

After he was released in the early hours of Tuesday morning, the 43-year-old singer reportedly contacted his team to reassure them that his world tour would not be affected.

This comes after he was arrested in the Hamptons for driving while intoxicated and running a stop sign.

In exclusive images obtained by DailyMail.com, he was seen in handcuffs and being led out by police officers after his arrest.

A source told the U.S. Sun that he had a long conference call in the hours following his arrest, because members of his crew were worried about the future of the world tour and said the incident ‘wasn’t the best thing to happen.’

After he was released on bail, Justin reportedly acted like a ‘very solid leader’ and impressed his team by ‘owning’ the situation.

‘He made sure that this arrest didn’t create tension in the crew,’ the insider revealed to the outlet. ‘He reacted like a boss, like someone who owns his s***.’

The source also added that the star ‘said sorry for bringing this kind of attention to the team’ and his crew ‘was happy to hear what he said.’

‘We were quickly told nothing was going to change,’ another insider revealed to the outlet.

According to the same source, he was in ‘great spirits’ and told everyone ‘with a big smile that he was sorry.’

He then admitted to his crew that ‘he shouldn’t have done that.’

‘We are 110 percent motivated to put everything behind us and put on some fantastic shows,’ his tour coordinator also revealed. ‘He is a responsible guy who made a mistake.’

The Grammy winner is due in court next month on July 26; meanwhile, he’s hired Sag Harbour lawyer Ed Burke Jr.

Justin’s lawyer has since broken his silence on the singer’s DWI arrest and suggested there is more to the story.

‘Mr. Burke looks forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake on these allegations,’ a statement from attorney Edward Burke’s office said.

‘Mr. Burke will have a lot to say at the appropriate time; he is currently awaiting full discovery from the District Attorney’s office.’

This comes shortly after the local police department in Sag Harbor, New York reported that Timberlake was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday morning and had a ‘strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath.’

After a brief arraignment where he was banned from driving for a year in the state of New York, he was released without bail.

The singer emerged from court wearing a baseball cap.

Timberlake had been drinking with friends at The American Hotel bar in Sag Harbor on Monday night when he decided to get behind the wheel of his BMW X7 shortly before 12:30 a.m.

The father-of-two was also said to have been unsteady on his feet and ‘performed poorly’ on a field sobriety test, which he ultimately failed.

After being arrested and taken to a local police station, he also refused to take a breathalyzer test.

For refusing the breathalyzer test, Timberlake had his driving privileges in the state of New York suspended.

Timberlake could potentially face being jailed for a year, having to pay a hefty fine or losing his license for six months.
