It’s finally Bieber time! Get set to make the epic journey to Dubai’s Sevens Stadium to see the pop wonder on his Believe tour. Of course we’ll be watching to see if he arrives on time, brings a monkey, or sports a gas mask as he did in London. The 19-year-old is rumoured to be buying a home in Dubai, while it has also been reported his crew have enquired about booking the entire Aquaventure and Wild Wadi waterparks for his personal use. But whatever he does and wherever he goes, expect hordes of screaming girls to follow. The first show is totally sold out, while tickets are still available for the recently-announced second gig. Get your tickets while they last!
