A ‘Belieber’ rushed the stage at Justin Bieber’s concert in Dubai last night (Sunday May 5).

Despite reports than the teenage star was attacked, concert organisers insist it was a fan eager to make physical contact with the object of their adoration.

YouTube footage posted by fans shows Bieber sprinting to the side of the stage following the intrusion, while security guards grapple with the stage jumper, knocking over the piano. After a short delay Bieber returned to the stage, closing the show with ‘Baby’. The 19-year-old Canadian later tweeted: ‘Dubai. Nothing stops the show.’

With a capacity of 50,000 over two nights, Justin Bieber’s ‘Believe Tour’ shows at The Seven Stadiums have been billed as the biggest single artist music act the UAE has hosted.
