(Getty Images)On Monday, it was reported that fans were forced to leave Justin Bieber’s concert at London’s O2 Arena in tears after the singer took the stage two hours after his scheduled 8:30 set time. Within hours, Bieber took to Twitter to address the headlines, insisting that he was only about 40 minutes late due to “technical issues.”
since i have been here it hasnt been easy with the press at times but I have loved it. so let me say this… last night i was scheduled after 3 opening acts to go on stage at 935 not 830 but because of some technical issues i got on at 10:10..so…i was 40 min late to stage. there is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset. However it was great show and Im proud of that. and tonight we will run on time and look forward to putting on an amazing show for everyone in attendance. my relationship with the media is not always easy but im trying. Im all about the music and the performance and i respect my fans. i never have any intent to upset or let anyone down. and Im not okay with things being exaggerated. once again sorry for anyone upset. now we have a show to do today and Im gonna focus on the positive and put on a great show tonight here in London. NIGHT 2 at the 02 is gonna be even better. get ready. thanks.
So don’t trust the ticket time, guys, because no one has any intention of actually sticking to it. Even though London’s Tube only runs until a certain hour, putting many young fans in danger of getting stuck somewhere without any way home.
