Justin Bieber Late for London Show, Issues Apology
On March 4, Justin Bieber reportedly showed up two hours late for a performance, angering fans and their parents in the process. In response, the “Boyfriend” singer issued a statement on March 5, in which he mentions technical issues and his uneven relationship with the media.
Writing on Twitter, the pop star opened with: “Since i have been here it hasn't been easy with the press at times but i have loved it. so let me say this…”
Bieber then explains that he was scheduled to go on at 9:35 p.m., after three opening acts. However, “technical issues” delayed his appearance to 10:10 p.m., giving many concertgoers a choice to see his show or miss the train after paying over $100 for tickets. Reports of the incident include fans booing at 9:30 p.m. Because of this, he said: “[T]here is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset. However it was great show and Im proud of that.”
Bieber closed with: “I never have any intent to upset or let anyone down. and Im not okay with things being exaggerated. once again sorry for anyone upset. now we have a show to do today and Im gonna focus on the positive and put on a great show tonight here in London.”
Tonight is the singer’s second night out of four total performances at the O2 Arena. Adjustments to the set time have apparently been made. Since the incident, the venue apologized on its Twitter page.
