Justin Bieber is putting his big-boy pants on next summer and stepping into his first stadium tour, which will also result in the first major pop music concert at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Biebs’ Purpose Tour will land Friday, Aug. 18, at Minneapolis’ new football mega-palace. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for $44.40-$177.50 plus fees through Ticketmaster. Pre-sale offers begin Tuesday at 10 a.m.

Minneapolis is only the third stop scheduled on the former teen heartthrob’s 2017 outing. He got well past one-hit wonder status with last year’s album, “Purpose,” which has sold 5 million copies worldwide thanks to such hit singles as “Sorry?” and “Love Yourself.” The Twin Cities sure seem to still love the Biebs; his Target Center concert on the first round of the Purpose Tour this past summer (June 19) quickly sold out and saw a high demand on scalper sites.

The Bieber announcement capped off a busy morning at U.S Bank Stadium, which also announced a July 30 date with Guns N’ Roses around 7 a.m. Monday. U.K. rockers Coldplay also already have an Aug. 12 date on the books at the new Vikings stadium.

Bieber first mentioned his upcoming stadium trek on "Ellen" two weeks ago, an appearance that also included this live performance below.
