The crown-price of pop, Justin Bieber's date with India is sealed! The Grammy-winning singer is all set to embark on his maiden trip to India this May. Coming as a part of his Purpose World Tour, Justin will be performing in the country for the first time ever. The speculations around Bieber's Purpose World Tour to be extended to India had been doing the rounds for a couple of weeks. And we just couldn't contain our excitement when White Fox India, the sole official promoter of Bieber's Purpose World tour confirmed the maiden Justin Bieber concert in India, to be held at Navi Mumbai's DY Patil stadium on May 10th.
Bieber's Purpose World Tour is to promote and celebrate his fourth album, Purpose, in which he has experimented with electronic sounds. The organisers have already announced that this extraordinary, lager-than-life show will be of a magnitude that the country has not witnessed in a long time. It will be propelled by state-of-the-art production. And if sources are to be believed, many top celebrities from Bollywood, corporate houses and the sports world will also grace the concert. Apart from India, the Asia leg of the tour will also see him performing in Tel Aviv and Dubai. The Purpose World Tour was kicked off in March 2016 in Seattle and will conclude in September in Toronto.
The 22-year old pop sensation won his first Grammy Award last year for his popular hit, Where Are You Now (Best Dance Recording Category). He recently broke the Beatles' 1964 record by topping the American Billboard 17 times. Purpose is Bieber's first album in two years. And, right after its release, it became the most streamed album on Spotify in one week. “What Do You Mean” from the album became the most-played song.
Last year, when Chris Martin and Coldplay arrived in India for their first ever concert in the country, we thought it just can't better than this. Now with Justin Bieber sealing his date with Beliebers in India, we just couldn't ask for more! It's been phenomenal how the world sees India as the next big destination for international music concerts of such stature. Mumbai, of all the cities, has become a dream destination now for most of the International music sensations!
Phase 1 tickets for the concert will go live on Feb 22 at BookMyShow. But to get yourself an early access to the ticket sale, pre-register here.
