Justin Bieber Makes Fans ‘Believe’ with Extensive Fall Tour
To support his upcoming third studio release, Justin Bieber has announced a very extensive North American tour that will begin this fall and run into early 2013.
Bieber will kick off the trek on September 29 in Glendale, Ariz. and the tour is scheduled to run through January 26, 2013 when it will close out with a performance in Miami, Fla. In between those dates, Bieber will visit arenas in just about every region of North America, and will hit cities including Los Vegas, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Memphis, New York, Toronto, New Orleans, Nashville, Atlanta and Orlando.
Throughout that time, Bieber will be on the road fairly consistently, though he will take a break between his December 1 show at the Rogers Arena in Canada and a January 5 show at the EnergySolutions Center in Salt Lake City. YouTube sensation Carly Rae Jepsen is expected to provide support for all of the shows.
A press release notes that one dollar from each ticket sold will benefit the Pencils of Promise charity. According to the statement, the organization “works to build schools and increase educational opportunities in the developing world. The goal is to build 15 schools around the world for needy children.
The tour will support Bieber’s next album, Believe, which is set to be released June 19 on Island records. The album contains the Canadian pop singer’s current single, “Boyfriend,” which debuted at number one on iTunes in a record 32 countries. The video for the song has garnered more than 44 million views since it was released on May 3.
The album will follow Bieber’s most recent album, Under the Mistletoe. As the name would suggest, the record is a collection of Christmas songs and was released last year. Bieber’s last non-holiday collection was his 2010 debut, My World 2.0. That album was preceded by the EP, My World.
