These Justin Bieber fans are camping out for a concert five months away because why?
Let the record show that Justin Bieber’s Brazilian fans are one seriously dedicated bunch.
Outside of Rio de Janeiro’s Sambadrome, the site of Bieber’s March 2017 Purpose concert, some young Beliebers have set up a campsite where they wait — day in, day out — for their idol to hit the stage. The catch is, the concert they are camping out for isn’t until March 2017! 😯
According to Brazilian news outlet Globo, the group began their campout on Wednesday and they take turns holding down the fort while each attends school or work. They say they’re out there for their “idol” and are willing to go through just about anything to see him live in concert.
His Brazilian tour dates sold out quickly when tickets went on sale last month, so fans are hoping they’ll be able to get last-minute access to the show by camping out.
Bieber hasn’t visited Brazil since 2013, when he cut short a concert after getting hit by a bottle on stage in São Paulo.
That was also the trip when he was allegedly spotted leaving a “brothel,” and a video — shot by a fan on her cell phone in the singer’s hotel room — was released showing Bieber sleeping after a seemingly long night of entertaining.
Even back then fans were camping out for tickets, though. In 2013, Beliebers lined up two months before his Believe show in Rio at a campsite that was monitored closely by police and open strictly to those over age 18.
Even though Justin walked off stage at a recent show in Manchester, England because, he said, audience members were screaming too loudly during breaks, Brazilian fans continue to *belieb* in their man. Now that’s loyalty!
