Just days after getting into an altercation with a persistent paparazzo, Justin Bieber is making headlines again, and unfortunately, they’re still not the good kind. Last night, Justin performed a free concert in Oslo, Norway in preparation for his TV special, Justin Bieber: All Around the World, when things got a little bit out of control. According to TMZ, 49 girls were injured and 14 of them had to be taken by ambulance to be checked out. Luckily, no one was seriously hurt, but even the Biebs knew that his Beliebers were getting a little too crazy. He tweeted before taking the stage :
“…for the show to happen u must all listen to the police. we are all concerned for your safety and i want what is best for u. please listen and tonight we will have some fun. love you and im excited to see you all. NORWAY…THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME!
Apparently the crowd got so rowdy that Oslo’s Mayor, Fabian Stang, who was forced to hide behind a tree to avoid being trampled, has reached out to the Emergency Planning Agency to figure out what went wrong. Yikes, that doesn’t sound good, Norway.
You know what they say, though, the show must go on. Despite all the drama, Justin took the stage and performed old favorites as well as two brand-new songs, “All Around the World” and “As Long As You Love Me,” from Believe. Yep, we’re obsessed already.
So, what do you think, Beliebers? Did the fans go crazy or do the authorities need to chill? What would you do to see Justin perform a free show?
