LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – With back-to-back worldwide smash hit singles and anticipation for his new RBMG/Def Jam Recordings album Purpose this Friday hitting an all-time high, Justin Bieber has announced his 58 city ‘Purpose World Tour’ beginning March 9, 2016 in Seattle, WA.
The 58-date tour, promoted by AEG Live, hit arenas across North America; including markets such as Denver, Las Vegas, Dallas, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Chicago, Boston and Miami as well as all throughout Eastern and Western Canada.
Bieber will play two-night runs at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center, Chicago’s Allstate Arena and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. The tour will conclude on July 18, 2016 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
The hype around Bieber’s new music continues with the smash successes of “Sorry” and “What Do You Mean?” which was crowned Justin’s first #1 on Billboard’s all-format airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot 100 the week of its release, selling over 335,000 units digitally in the U.S. that week. “What Do You Mean?” also went to #1 in Justin’s native Canada, and became his first #1 UK national chart hit. The song, which hit #1 at iTunes within five minutes of its release, and reached #1 at iTunes in more than 90 countries, went on to easily break the Weekly Global Spotify streaming record with over 41 million streams, reaching 100 million Global streams in less than one month out. This week, Bieber premiered the tracks “The Feeling” and “Love Yourself”; the former features indie breakout pop singer Halsey and the latter was co-written with Ed Sheeran.
With the launch of the iTunes pre-order last month, Purpose skyrocketed to #1 on the iTunes Top Album chart in over 90 countries worldwide.
