Justin Bieber The Wait Is Over – Believe Tour to Visit NZ

EMBARGO 5AM THURSDAY 20th JUNE

Justin Bieber
The Wait Is Over – Believe Tour to Visit New Zealand!

The wait is over! The Frontier Touring Company is thrilled to finally confirm that the one and only Justin Bieber will be bringing the Believe tour to New Zealand this summer.

New Zealand Beliebers have been eagerly awaiting news of a tour that has already amazed audiences across more than 150 shows throughout North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

The lead up to the tour saw Bieber bunkering down for two months of ten-hour long rehearsal days. The final result is nothing short of incredible:

‘Hundreds of thousands of shrieking fans, many donning homemade T-shirts, singing, crying, dancing and, yes, wearing out their vocal cords with screams, turned the downtown L.A. arena into a virtual spaceship from another planet.’ – Hollywood Reporter

‘It was nothing if not spectacular - and just what we have come to expect... He rose on a podium to a new high and that looks like that’s just where he is going to stay - at the top.’ – Liverpool Echo

Bieber is an artist that needs no introduction with two Artist Of The Year American Music Awards, two Grammy nominations, more than 40 million Twitter followers and 15 million albums sold worldwide to his name.

The Canadian superstar has come a long way from the teenage sensation who racked up more than 10,000,000 views on his YouTube channel from word of mouth alone.

Discovered and signed by his manager Scooter Braun thanks to his spectacular cover videos of the likes of Justin Timberlake, Ne-Yo and Stevie Wonder, Bieber’s talent also earned him a mentor in pop icon Usher and a record deal with Island Def Jam Records.

Three studio albums, 3.3 billion VEVO video views and a box office smash feature-length film later, Justin Bieber’s Believe tour offers fans a glimpse of their idol in his finest form yet.

Inspired by Michael Jackson’s concerts from the 80s and 90s, Bieber aims to make you ‘believe in magic again’ with a show filled with lights, sounds and pyrotechnics.

The elaborate stage production of Believe is lead by the show’s director Jon M. Chu, the name behind Bieber’s smash hit bio-doc Never Say Never as well as the Step Up franchise. This is Chu’s first stage show and promises to be the Hollywood-worthy extravaganza that ups the ante on Bieber’s previous My World tour.

The Believe tour features more than a dozen dancers, feature-film quality video segments and a triple-level stage with wind machines, cranes and runways. Show director, Jon M. Chu, lets fans know what they have to look forward to:

"The show starts before the show even starts. We had a cinematic score composed for when people take their seats, and there are other (pre-show) elements I can't talk about. When people walk in, we want them to feel like they're about to take a ride at Disneyland. They will let go of their everyday cares."

There are no further dates to be added to Justin Bieber’s Believe New Zealand tour. Be quick to grab your tickets as these shows are sure to sell out!
