Whether you're a Belieber or a Behater, there's nothing you can do. Justin Bieber is coming to Phoenix.
Bieber — who two years ago pissed into a mop bucket outside a New York City club and then acted like he did the restaurant a favor — will play a concert at Gila River Arena in Glendale on March 30, 2016.
The Purpose World Tour will find Bieber visiting more than 50 cities across the U.S. and Canada. He doesn't have an album out or anything, but he's still releasing music that for some reason gets attention. The Beliebers are a force to be reckoned with, apparently.
Hopefully Bieber's stomach will turn a little better this time around. In 2012, he vomited on stage at Gila River Arena (then known as Jobing.com Arena), and no one ever got the full story why. All Bieber gave was a cheeky Anchorman quote on Twitter: "And .... Milk was a bad choice! Lol."
