Justin Bieber: On the Circuit, Making Amends
By Emily Kopac
Justin Bieber’s 2016 Purpose world tour will be at Madison Square Garden on July 18 and 19. The tour will also be in our area May 4 and May 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and July 9 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
The Purpose world tour starts March 9, 2016 in Seattle, Washington and will end in New York City at Madison Square Garden. Justin Bieber has not been on tour since his Believe tour, which started in September 2012 in Glendale, California and ended in December 2013 in Perth, Australia.
On August 28, Justin’s new single “What Do You Mean?” was released, followed by “Sorry,” which was released on October 23. The full album, Purpose, was released on November 13. Tickets went on sale for the Purpose world tour on November 20.
The Purpose tour is to stop all around the United States and Canada, including Vancouver, Los Angeles, Nashville, Orlando, Miami, Chicago, Baltimore, New York City, and many others. Justin has been all over promoting this album and tour; stopping at the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and even doing the first ever Justin Bieber week on the Ellen show. Justin was a guest on all of her shows during that week, Monday through Friday. Justin ended the week by doing an outdoor concert for the audience.
Along with promoting his album and tour Justin Bieber has been talking, wanting people to know that he has changed and he is sorry for everything he has done in the past and is truly grateful for his fans and everything they do for him. The tour was originally scheduled to end on July 18, 2016 at Madison Square Garden but because of the popularity of the ticket sales another date was added for Madison Square Garden on July 19. As of now there are announced to be a total of 64 shows around North America.
