Stratford, Ontario’s Justin Bieber kicked off the first Canadian show of his Purpose World Tour last night at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. A number of international fans handed over their savings to airline companies and scrambled for passports and visas to be able to attend. Jared Thomas snapped this photo of sweethearts who travelled all the way from Brazil!
Francois Marchand of the Vancouver Sun stated, “The couple of years that preceded Bieber’s poised Purpose were made of tumultuous tabloid fodder. Purpose changed everything: a new image, a new sound, a new pop.” And how was the concert? Well, in the aforementioned journalist’s words, “there was nothing [Bieber] or his fans had to feel Sorry about on their way out.” Quite the spectacle for sure. Track “Company” from the album has been released as a new single and is heading on up the Nielsen BDS charts.
