Global platinum selling megastar Justin Bieber, fresh from celebrating his no.1 album in the UK, Believe, has announced that he will return to the British Isles with his 2013 UK Tour.
The hearts of Beliebers across the country will be set aflutter as the ‘Believe’ tour, hits six UK cities, including a date in Sheffield at the Motorpoint Arena on Saturday February 23, 2013.
BELIEVE takes flight on the wings of “Boyfriend,” its first worldwide smash single, which set a world-record for debuting No.1 on iTunes in 32 countries. The “Boyfriend” video has shattered all YouTube records generating eight million views in its first 24 hours, and has garnered over 44 million views to date. BELIEVE is Executive Produced by Scott “Scooter” Braun and Usher Raymond IV, and track producers include Max Martin, Mike Posner, MdL, Diplo, Hit-Boy, The Messengers, Zedd, Rodney Jerkins, and Justin’s vocal producer, Kuk Harrell. The album features guest appearances by Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Big Sean.
The platinum selling pop sensation became a worldwide star in 2009 with his debut single ‘One Time’. He was the first artist to have seven songs from a debut album chart on the Billboard Hot 100 with his release My World. The Canadian superstar’s third studio album, My World 2.0 was released in March 2010 and spawned massive UK top ten singles ‘Baby’ and ‘Eenie Meenie’.
