Justin Beiber show cancelled

Muscat: Disappointing ‘Beliebers’ in Oman, Alive Entertainment, the local organisers of the Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber, have cancelled Oman edition of singer’s ‘Believe’ World Tour’.

In a statement released yesterday, the event organizer has announced that the Oman show will no longer take place. Due to overwhelming regional demand, a second show in Dubai has today been announced for May 5.

“Ticket holders for Oman who purchased online from Box Office ME will be contacted directly and will either be able to avail of swapping their tickets to equivalent concert tickets to the new Dubai date or get a full refund. Valid tickets purchased from other channels can be exchanged or refunded at MacKenzies Cafe Deli in MQ before April 22,” the statement adds.

Bieber’s show was slated to be held on May 6. The Muscat show was part of Bieber’s Believe Tour and was supposed to take place two days after the teen idol’s Dubai concert. Tickets were issued in three categories — regular standing (OMR35), premium standing (OMR50) and Fan Pit Standing (OMR100) were available at the Muscat Grand Mall Atrium.

According to ‘Believe’ World Tour’ organisers in Dubai, due to overwhelming demand and with thousands of regional Justin Bieber fans, they have announced a new second show on May 5.

Tickets for the new Dubai show May 5 will be available from www.justinbieberdubai.com and all usual ticket sites and starts at AED 350.

Based on the rapid sell out of the premium categories when the first show went on sale Done Events, the organizers, have urged fans to get their tickets as there will be no more regional shows put on sale on this tour.

“As if selling out the biggest concert ever to be staged in Dubai wasn’t enough the Beliebers just won’t let us off the hook” says COO Done Events Thomas Ovesen “adding a second show to his first ever Middle East visit gives Justin Bieber and our team another great opportunity to accommodate the huge demand from Middle East fans wanting to see the show and so we are very excited that Justin Bieber has agreed to extend his Dubai stay by another day to help fulfill the dreams of more regional fans.”

Laila Suhail, CEO of Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment, said “2013 has begun with a series of high profile acts performing in Dubai. Adding a second Justin Bieber concert is further demonstration of our reputation as a leading events destination and of the thirst in the region for such performances. As a city we will continue to seek to satisfy this thirst and to increase Dubai’s inclusion on the world tour schedule of major artists.”
