Justin Bieber adds more Glasgow shows

Justin Bieber has confirmed that he will perform an additional two gigs in Glasgow next year as part of his Purpose World Tour due to phenomenal demand.

The Canadian superstar will now perform at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Thursday 27, Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October as part of the UK leg of his 2016 tour. He will also perform dates in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Dublin.

The 21-year-old will be touring in support of his latest album, Purpose, which was released last month and has shot straight to top of the charts in over 100 different countries.

Demand for tickets has been exceptionally high as the dates will mark the first time the Sorry hitmaker has performed in Scotland since he played a small acoustic show for 40 school pupils at Bellshill Academy in January 2010. He hasn’t toured the UK since he brought his Believe tour to the country in 2013.

The announcement comes after Bieber delighted fans with his performance at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday. He headlined the festive concert, which also featured performances from Little Mix, Coldplay, Jason Derulo and Ellie Goulding.

Tickets for Bieber’s gigs at The SSE Hydro will cost from £56.75 – £130.20 and will be available via www.ticketmaster.co.uk . Members of his Fahlo fan club will have access to an exclusive presale which will give them the opportunity to buy tickets from 4pm on Friday 11 December. A separate O2 Priority and SSE Rewards presale will be held at 9am on Wednesday 16 December before the general sale at 9am on Thursday 17 December.

Full UK and Ireland tour dates are as follows:

  • Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12, Friday 14 and Saturday 15  October – The O2, London
