Bieber Fever Reaches Miami’s American Airlines Arena

Having become the 21st Century’s biggest pop heartthrob, Justin Bieber has admitted that he wants the ‘Believe’ tour to silence the critics who have questioned the longevity of his career. However, the army of “Beliebers” who attended the final dates of his first North American leg at Miami’s American Airlines Arena had no such concerns. They responded to each and every one of the 20 songs with an array of ear-splitting screams and squeals that bounced around the 20,000 seat venue.

With an average price of $382 & $419 on TicketIQ, Bieber tickets for the shows on January 26th and 27th were slightly higher than the tour average of $284. Although there were seats available in some sections for as low as $72. However, with such a visually spectacular and hit-packed two-hour set, few fans went home disappointed with what they got for their money.

After entering the stage on a giant pair of flying metal wings to “All Around The World,” the 18-year-old rarely paused for breath in his quest to entertain, plucking a girl out of the crowd for a serenade of “Beautiful.” He also performed “As Long As You Love Me” shirtless atop a tower at the end of the catwalk and inviting fellow teen idol Jaden Smith on stage to revisit their hit collaboration, “Never Say Never.”

The Canadian star also utilized a plethora of video screens on “She Don’t Like The Lights,” which was accompanied by footage focusing on his relationship with the paparazzi, while a series of behind-the-scenes clips documented his remarkably rapid rise to fame.

Amidst the dazzling display of pyrotechnics and lasers, a futuristic sci-fi backdrop, and the troupe of dancers selected via a YouTube competition, Bieber was also keen to prove his musical credentials. He reeled off album tracks “Fall” and “Be Alright” with an acoustic guitar all while suspended fifty feet above the stage.

Unsurprisingly, his recent sophomore album, 'Believe', made up the bulk of the set list with the Justin Timberlake-esque lead single, “Boyfriend,” and a solo version of Nicki Minaj duet “Beauty And A Beat” receiving the most rapturous response. His 2010 debut, My World 2.0, was also represented with a medley of “One Time,” “Eenie Meenie” and “Somebody To Love” and an encore of its signature track “Baby.”

Bieber now moves onto Dublin’s The 02 ($751 avg) arena on February 17th for the first of 40 European dates, but will return to the States on June 22nd at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center ($290 avg). A huge number of Justin Bieber tickets are still available on TicketIQ for most of his remaining North American shows including nearly 8000 for his gigs at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on June 25th ($343 avg) and Washington’s Verizon Center on August 3rd ($341 avg). While the get-in price for Justin Bieber tickets are the lowest at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on August 8th and Atlanta’s Philips Arena on August 10th (both $72), the August 5th date at Columbia’s Colonial Life Arena currently has the lowest average ticket price at $196.
