The Biebs is coming back to town. Justin Bieber has set a June 19 date at Target Center as part of a 58-city 2016 tour announced this morning ahead of Friday’s release of his new album, “Purpose.” Tickets to the Minneapolis show go on sale next Friday, Nov. 20, for $50.50-$126 via AXS.com, 1-888-9-AXS-TIX or the arena’s box office.
Bieber’s wide array of TMZ-reported bad-boy antics and sometimes cheesy persona in recent years has made him the subject of punchlines and career-dead-end speculation, but the 21-year-old Canadian pop star seems to be rebounding into adulthood with “Purpose.” The single “What Do You Mean?” became his first No. 1 U.S. single over the summer, and collaborations with electronic dance producer Skrillex and British pop star Ed Sheeran on the record have also earned it a buzz.
The Target Center date comes about three-quarters of the way through his North American tour, which kicks off March 9 in Seattle and includes a Fargo show the night before Minneapolis (June 18 at the Fargodome). He played Target Center on his last tour in 2012, an instantly sold-out show that included tons of dancing and ample lip-syncing.
Bieber is making the media rounds this week and announced his tour on Ellen DeGeneres' set. Here's the clip.
