Justin Bieber in Concert

Bieber Fever set to hit Cape Town shores in May 2013


Brace yourself, girls, the rumours that swirled through the Mother City mid-2012 have finally been confirmed: teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber will be making his way to Mzansi shores and performing live in concert at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday, 8 May 2013 and at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday, 12 May 2013.

Hailing from Canada, the pin-up pop star has gone from strength to strength since he was first discovered on YouTube (courtesy of a few homemade videos) at the tender age of 13. His 2009 debut album, ‘My World,’ met with unrivalled success, with a whopping seven of its songs charting on the Billboard Hot 100 (a record for a first release). The much-loved singer-songwriter has since sold more than 15 million records worldwide and spawned countless hit singles (think  ‘Baby’, ‘Somebody to Love’, ‘Boyfriend’ and ‘As Long As You Love Me’), several of which come off his most recent 2012 release ‘Believe’, which topped the charts in the US and claimed the number one spot in 30 other countries.

Not to mention, the pop culture icon and social media superstar – he boasts more than 44 million Facebook fans and over 23 million followers on Twitter – has also raked in an almost endless array of prestigious accolades during his relatively short spell on the global music scene. In addition to being awarded Artist of the Year at the 2010 and 2012 American Music Awards, the teen sensation has also received two Grammy nominations, claimed a number of coveted titles at the MTV Europe Music Awards, and has ultimately been named the third-most powerful celebrity in the world by Forbes magazine.

Perhaps Justin’s greatest achievement, though, is that he’s managed to garner an impressively large following of fiercely loyal, adoring female fans (so adoring, in fact, that his love interest, actress and singer Selena Gomez, receives daily threats). And it’s no doubt to the great delight of masses of Mother City girls (and a whole number of guys too) that the gifted, young artist has committed to perform in South Africa for the first time in the coming year. Offering local supporters a rare chance to catch him and his famed infectious tunes live, his Cape Town concert will certainly be one for the books.

'Baby'                                                                                 'Somebody to Love'

   

'U Smile'  

‘Boyfriend’                                                                        ‘All Around the World’

‘Die in Your Arms’                                                          ‘As Long As You Love Me’ 


Supporting acts for the Justin Bieber Concert in Cape Town

The opening acts for the Justin Bieber concerts are South African Music Award (SAMA)-winning duo Locnville and SAMA-nominee ChianoSky.

The identical twins, Andrew and Brian Chaplin, from local group Locnville rocketed onto the music scene with the hit summer single ‘Sun In My Pocket’ in 2009, effectively capturing the hearts of music lovers; the dynamic duo have yet to put the brakes on their runaway success.

Five-time SAMA-nominated 19-year-old songstress, ChianoSky took the airwaves by storm with her haunting single ‘Walking Away’. The young starlet currently has three songs play listed at local radio stations, and her debut album, “Hungry”, was released in mid-2012.
