What year is it? 2019? Because artists are once again announcing offline gigs — including Canadian pop superstar Justin Bieber, who has been confirmed for a concert in Jakarta on Nov. 3.
The 28-year-old singer will be performing at Madya Stadium, Gelora Bung Karno, as a part of his Justice World Tour to promote his latest album of the same name that was released in March of last year.
The tour’s Asia leg will kick off on Oct. 22 in KL. After Jakarta, Bieber is set to perform in Nagoya on Nov. 9 and Osaka on Nov. 12, while Tokyo will host back-to-back shows on Nov. 16 and 17.
Tickets for the Jakarta show will be available to purchase starting Tuesday, March 29 at 10am on the official website. You can only purchase the tickets using a BCA credit or debit card, as well as via a BCA virtual account transfer.
Ticket prices range from IDR1.5 million for category 5 to IDR6 million for category 1. If you’re a truly dedicated Belieber, you can opt for one out of three VIP packages: Hold On at IDR5.25 million, Peaches at IDR6.25 million, and Ghost at IDR8.5 million — which include reserved tickets for category 3, 2, and 1, respectively, limited edition tour memorabilia, and “exclusive Justin Bieber VIP merchandise.”
Bieber entered the music industry with an EP titled My World in 2009 and released a debut studio album My World 2.0 a year later. The strong debut, which saw everyone singing his songs such as Baby and That Should Be Me, established him as one of the world’s most popular teen idols.
He was involved in multiple controversies as well as legal issues over the course of 2013-2014, which heavily impacted his public image. Bieber experimented with different genres over the course of his career, including EDM and R&B, which also reflected in his collaborations, notably his remix to Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee released in 2017, which won him a Latin Grammy Award.
Today, Bieber is one of the best-selling music artists of all time and has won multiple accolades, including two Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards, 21 Billboard Music Awards, and MTV Video Music Awards. His latest works include the R&B-influenced fifth studio album Changes in 2020; Stuck With U, a standalone duet with Ariana Grande; and his sixth album Justice in 2021, with hits including Peaches and a collaboration with Australian rapper and singer The Kid Laroi for a single titled Stay.
