Justin Bieber’s notoriously dedicated fan base was none too happy with the 19-year-old Monday night, when his London fans reportedly started booing him after he started his concert inside the O2 Arena nearly two hours late.
The opening acts performed until 8:50 p.m., and it wasn’t until 10:20 p.m. that Bieber appeared on stage, the BBC reports.
Justin addressed the incident Tuesday morning on his Twitter, apologizing for his tardiness.
“Since I have been here it hasn’t 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 9:35 not 8:30 but because of some technical issues I got on at 10:10..so…i was 40 min late to stage,”; he explained. “There is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset. However it was great show and I’m proud of that.”;
“My relationship with the media is not always easy but I’m trying. I’m all about the music and the performance and I respect my fans,”; he added. “I never have any intent to upset or let anyone down. And I’m not okay with things being exaggerated. Once again sorry for anyone upset.”;
Justin’s concert drama has been the latest in what’s turning out to be a less than stellar London trip, when he tweeted “worst birthday”; after his birthday bash was cut short over the weekend.
Still, Justin’s already looking on the bright side of things.
“Now we have a show to do today and I’m gonna focus on the positive and put on a great show tonight here in London,”; he tweeted. “NIGHT 2 at the 02 is gonna be even better. Get ready. Thanks.”;
