Muscat: Disappointing "Beliebers" in Oman, local event organisers Alive Entertainment has cancelled the Oman edition of Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber's 'Believe' World Tour. In a statement released yesterday, the event organiser announced that the Oman show will no longer take place. Due to overwhelming regional demand, a second show in Dubai has been announced
for May 5.
"All tickets will either receive a full refund or concert-goers will be able to swap their Oman tickets for the Dubai show on May 5, so it is up to an individual to decide what they want to do. If they would like a refund, they can visit Mackenzies Cafe & Deli between 9am and 6pm from Saturday to Wednesday. For those who want to exchange their tickets, we are arranging for new tickets to be sent to Muscat, so concert-goers can exchange their old tickets for a valid ticket for the event in Dubai," a statement from the event organisers noted.
Bieber's show was slated to be held on May 6.
The Muscat show was part of Bieber's 'Believe Tour' and was supposed to take place two days after the teen idol's Dubai concert. Tickets were issued at Muscat Grand Mall Atrium in three categories: regular standing (OMR35), premium standing (OMR50), and fan pit standing (OMR100).
'Believe World Tour' organisers in Dubai, in response to the overwhelming demand from thousands of regional Justin Bieber fans, have announced a new second show on May 5.
New tickets for Dubai
Tickets for the new Dubai show will be available on www.justinbieberdubai.com and all the usual ticket sites and will start at AED350.
Based on the rapid sell-out of the premium categories when the first show went on sale, Done Events, the Dubai-based organisers, have urged fans to get their tickets well in advance since there will be no further regional shows on sale for this tour.
"As if selling out the biggest concert ever to be staged in Dubai wasn't enough, the 'Beliebers' just won't let us off the hook," said the COO of Done Events, Thomas Ovesen.
"Adding a second show to his first-ever Middle East visit gives Justin Bieber and our team another great opportunity to accommodate the huge demand from Middle East fans, who want to see the show. And so, we are very excited that Justin Bieber has agreed to extend his Dubai stay by another day to help fulfil the dreams of more regional fans."
