Pop singer Justin Bieber is set to begin his “Believe” tour in September in North America as tickets went on sale this past Saturday, but the sale didn’t last long for all 45 shows in Canada and the United States.
All 45 shows were sold out in record time, which was less than an hour. Two shows to be held at Madison Square Garden in New York actually sold out in 30 seconds.
A happy Scooter Braun, Bieber’s manager, tweeted about the tour selling out so quickly this past weekend. “What!?! Just found out @justinbieber sold out the entire #BelieveTour North America in 1 Hour and both MSG shows clean in 30 seconds!!!!” he wrote. “Blown away. Now we are gonna make sure the #BelieveTour is as epic as possible. Thank u for supporting the kid. Amazing.”
Though one single, “Boyfriend” has already been released from it, the “Believe” album that the concert tour is to promote, isn’t even going to be released until June 19th. For the tour alone, that will also stretch globally for 125 total shows, Justin has been guaranteed a minimum $80 million-dollar pay day with possibly more to come with merchandising deals.
Back in May Bieber told MTV that his fans won’t be disappointed when they show up at one of his upcoming concerts. “There’s a lot of fun stuff. I’ve been really hard at work in the studio, in the dance studio, just kind of figuring out what I want to do as far as choreography and whatnot,” he said. “I think the tour’s going to be really special. We got a lot of surprises.”
