ORIGINAL STORY: If you’re wondering what that unusual sound is in the distance, it’s most likely the screams of thousands of Aussie Beliebers simultaneously losing their shit, because Justin Bieber is pretty much 100 per cent gearing up to announce a new Australian tour.
Touring company Frontier are partially responsible for the tip-off that Biebs is returning down under for his first live shows since 2013’s Believe Tour, after sharing a not-so-subtle teaser on social media today.
The teaser comes emblazoned with the text “WHAT DO YOU MEAN?” (the title of the Biebs’ 2015 mega-hit, obvies) and contains a link to countdown clock at the address whereareyounow.com (the title of yet another Biebs 2015 mega-hit), which is ticking down the minutes until the big announcement is scheduled to go down, which by our calculations pins the news being unveiled at around 1am AEST Tuesday, 4th October:

What’s more, unapologetic surprise-ruiners Kyle & Jackie O are totally in on the news, and have uploaded an Instagram video which straight-up confirms a Bieber Aussie Tour is getting announced on Tuesday, 4th October.
While Nova have also confirmed the announcement and uploaded their own post, indicating that “something big is coming in 2017”.
In short, permission to squeal like a giddy schoolgirl = granted.
