“It feels like only a short while ago when Justin Bieber suddenly emerged from the world of social media and hit the charts big time exposing us to ‘Biebermania’ for the first time,” said Thomas Ovesen, COO Done Events. “Now that we know the phenomenon is also an amazingly talented superstar, we look forward to welcoming Justin Bieber to Dubai for the very first time and for what will hopefully be his first of many concerts performing his hits to the legions of regional Beliebers.”
The announcement is likely to please Bieber's thousands of fans – often known as Beliebers – in the city. Many have been campaigning on social media for many months for star to visit the Middle East.
