Justin Bieber Turns Up Late But The Fans Don’t Care REVIEW

by Cristi Smirnakos on December 4, 2013

There has been a lot of criticism of Justin Bieber’s tardiness with his late shows during his Australian tour but frankly the kids don’t care. The audience were hardcore Beleibers.

Bieber’s heir-apparent Cody Simpson kick started the show with enough energy pure pop for the young hysterical fans waiting to see Justin Bieber. Australian born, California based Simpson earned the fans respect and kept their attention before Bieber finally arrived.

Was he late for every concert in Australia? Yes. Did the fans mind? It didn’t show… Was there hysteria? Most definitely yes.

Bieber appeared on stage to thousands of screaming fans, starting the show with his new song “All Around The World”. Nothing definitively new or inspiring about this show in terms of live acts but then again the crowd weren’t looking for that. They had waited so long for their idol to appear on stage that this was satisfaction enough.

Bieber blazed through some of his old favourites, mixed in with his new album Believe. He seemed in control of the crowd and always keeping the interaction in check.

Halfway through the show, Bieber wound down his performance when he did his acoustic set, showcasing where his true talent really was at in his vocals.

And true to form invited one lucky young fan on stage whilst singing his classic “One Less Lonely Girl”. Which now seems a trademark thing to do for live acts.

Regardless of his offstage antics, Bieber still has the ability to deliver a crowd-pleasing performance to his legion of loyal fans. When the fans like it, the critics don’t really matter.

The Justin Bieber setlist from Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena December 2, 2013:

All Around The World
Take You
