Justin Bieber Headlining Believe Tour Kicks Off September
While Justin Bieber fans are awaiting the June 19 release of Believe , perhaps they can slake their fever by snatching up some tickets to the singer's upcoming North American tour.
Bieber will hit the road for a headlining tour in support of his fourth album on September 29 with a show in Glendale, Arizona, with fans who purchase tickets to the shows getting a chance to pre-order the disc. The 'Believe' outing will hit 45 cities before wrapping up in Miami on January 26, 2013, with protégé Carly Rae Jepsen on board as the opening act for the entire run.
'There's a lot of fun stuff,' Bieber promised earlier this week about what fans can expect to see on the tour. 'I've been really hard at work in the studio, in the dance studio, just kind of figuring out what I want to do as far as choreography and whatnot. I think the tour's going to be really special. We got a lot of surprises.'
The presale for the Fan Club will kick off on May 23, which gives diehards first crack at tickets and some exclusive merchandise. General public tickets will go on sale on June 2 in the U.S. (a day earlier for Canada). VIP packages will also be available, including premium seats, as well as potential meet-and-greet and photo opportunities with Bieber, autographed memorabilia, exclusive VIP merchandise and other perks. Also, from each ticket will be donated to Pencils of Promise , a charity that works to build schools and increase educational opportunities in the developing world, with a goal of building 15 schools around the world for needy children.
While he may be cooking up ways to surprise his fans on the road, Bieber was recently surprised when his video for 'Boyfriend' broke a record for the most views in one day on YouTube. 'It's crazy,' he said. 'Hopefully it just keeps getting more views and more views. My fans are amazing. I'm very blessed.'
Bieber just released the track list for Believe , confirming that duets with Drake, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean and Ludacris all made the album's final cut. His mentor, Usher, serves as the executive producer for the album.
