Justin Bieber has once again hit troubled waters during his run of shows in Dubai this weekend. The first show, taking place on Saturday, 4th May, saw the pop sensation arrive 2 hours late to an angered crowd, with the 2nd performance on Sunday being marred by an onstage attack, with a man jumping The Biebs from behind and toppling his piano mid-performance.
Both fans and parents in Dubai are fuming after being held up until the wee hours of the morning after Bieber simply failed to show up on time on Saturday. Much like his hellish tour through London, he rocked up on stage 2 hours after he was supposed to. As Sunday is a school day in Dubai, many were left seeing red when the show didn’t wrap up until well after midnight.
Their tempers are sure to have cooled down somewhat following the poetic justice the following night. During his performance on the Sunday, an attacker, described only as a “youth in a white shirt” ran on stage and grabbed Bieber from behind. The incident lasted only seconds with the singer carrying on as though nothing had happened but the fan footage below shows how crazy those few moments really were. Security was on the case within the blink of an eye but that didn’t stop his piano from being knocked over in the melee.
No word from Bieber or his people on either of the incidents – and there probably won’t be – but it seems that drama will find The Biebs no matter which country he performs in.
