South African fans will be delighted to know that Justin Bieber’s Justice World Tour is back on! Big Concerts and AEG Presents confirmed today that Bieber will be in Cape Town at the end of September, followed by Johannesburg in October (sorry, no Durban!).
In June, the American pop star announced that he was cancelling a series of concerts and appearances as he had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome which caused paralysis of one side of his face.
Today, publicists said the World Tour will resume at Lucca Festival, Italy on 31 July and that his long awaited and much-anticipated concerts at DHL Stadium, Cape Town on 28th September and FNB Stadium, Joburg on 1st October will go ahead.
Justin announced yesterday that he will resume his Justice World Tour and set off across a run of European Festivals and continue on his international world tour performances in South America, South Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, and then head back to Europe in 2023.
Tickets are available exclusively from ticketmaster.co.za.
Fans are reminded not to purchase tickets from secondary sites such as Viagogo as these tickets are not valid for entry into the venues.
In an unprecedented career that started when he was 13 years old, Bieber has released 6 studio albums and holds 32 Guinness World Records, 21 Billboard Music Awards, 2 BRIT Awards, 18 American Music Awards and 21 MTV Europe Music Awards. He has sold over 80 million albums and recently broke Elvis Presley’s record as the youngest solo artist to have 8 albums reach Number 1 on the Billboard 200 charts. In August, he broke the all-time record for monthly listeners on Spotify with over 83 million.
Promoted by AEG Presents, The ‘Justice World Tour’ is named after Justin’s latest smash hit album ‘Justice’. Released in March 2021, it debuted as the most streamed album in 117 countries. The album and its tracks have taken the already global pop phenomenon to new heights.
‘Justice’ has amassed nearly 9 billion streams worldwide, arriving on the back of huge international hits ‘Anyone’, ‘Lonely’ and ‘Holy’, which had already gathered 2 billion streams prior to the album’s release. Another breakout smash hit from the album immediately followed, with ‘Peaches’ racking up over 2.5 billion streams so far. The Kid LAROI duet ‘Stay’, was released in July this year and became the fastest song ever to hit 1 billion streams on Spotify.
This is Justin’s first global outing since 2016/2017’s ‘Purpose World Tour’. Described by The Times of London as “mesmerising”, Bieber played to 2.7 million fans over the course of his 2016-2017 run, with the finale seen by 65,000 fans at London’s British Summer Time Hyde Park festival.
