Phoenix, AZ — According to Fox News, Beliebers around the world can finally breathe a sigh of relief as Justin Bieber has officially announced a new album which will be released to the world on the 13th of November.
“I have a new album ready to drop and a world-wide tour for all my true fans who have stuck with me through thick and thin, I couldn’t have done this without yall! This album is for you!” Bieber told reporters, “Just always remember, stay true to yourself and you’ll always be true.”
A spokesmen for Bieber, Paul Horner, spoke with NBC News detailing information about where the album’s release concert will take place.
“So far there is no working title for Bieber’s new album as of yet, but I am more than happy to give you details about the upcoming show,” Horner said. “The concert will be held at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona on November 13th. The venue only seats 2,650 and this was done on purpose. Justin wants an intimate show with his real fans before his his world-wide tour begins January 9th, 2016 in Los Angeles, California. Tickets in Phoenix will go on sale the day of the concert and there will be no scalping or hoarding. We will have plenty of security and police in place to watch for this. Their main job is to keep concert-goers safe, but we want no one illegally profiting off this.” Horner continued, “In addition to the price of admittance, it is imperative for those those attending to show proof that they have donated to the Red Cross within the last six months. This is as simple as making a $10 donation and printing it out on a piece of paper. The Red Cross is a charity close to Justin’s heart and he wants this show to be about love and compassion.”
#1 Over this past year, Justin’s whole direction changed and now has a more positive outlook on things. Justin said he “lost hope” for awhile, but it is all about “getting out that rut.”
#2 It’s Selena-Inspired: With a roller coaster romance spanning several years, it’s no wonder that Justin admitted that a lot of his inspiration comes from Selena Gomez. “It was a long relationship and a relationship that created heartbreak and created happiness and a lot of different emotions that I wanted to write about, so there’s a lot of that on this album.”
#3 Justin has teamed up with none other than Kanye West to help bring is vision to life, revealing that Kanye has been pushing him. “He pulls something out of you that other people don’t,” Bieber said.
#4 Justin’s manager Tom Downey teased that JB’s music will “shock some people and make others really happy.”
#5 Back in January, Justin posted two snippets of songs on his Instagram where he was asking himself some pretty tough questions. “How do our lies become lighter?/ How do our eyes become brighter?/ You gotta believe in something higher,” he sings.
#6 Justin performed a surprise show in Los Angeles back in January, getting on stage with just his guitar. Could it be an acoustic album?
#7 Justin’s mentor, Usher told us that he wants to see his protege go back to his roots on his new music, “‘Cause when I found him, he had a guitar in his hand — I want to see that.”
#8 Bieber was not messing around when he brought in Rick Rubin to help produce his album, marking the first time these two have worked together.
#9 Justin has been in the studio with so many different people over the past year, from Chris Brown, to Austin Mahone, to Lil Wayne to Ariana Grande. However, as of today, there is still no word who will end up on the album in December.
#10 If you like Justin’s collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo on their Jack Ü project, you’re in luck. Bieber told a Miami radio station that the three are “going to collaborate on my next album and do something really special.”
Come November, if you are one of the extremely lucky individuals to get a ticket to this intimate show with Bieber, you can also expect local music from The Insects and Riverside Cathedral. They will be performing at The Lost Leaf in downtown Phoenix on August 27th if you would like to watch them beforehand. Live art will also be going throughout the night by local muralist Benji Sakoia and JJ Horner, who also does all the artwork for the skateboard company Pyramid Country.
To see Justin Bieber live in concert, tickets range in price from $44.95 to as high as $849.95 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster at approximately 11:00 PM MST the day of the show. It is on a first come, first serve basis. Proof that you donated to the Red Cross will be required at the gates of the Celebrity Theatre or you will not be admitted into the show. Bieber’s camp said to just print out a copy showing your donation to the Red Cross and that will suffice.
“We’re not looking for anything fancy, just something printed out from the Red Cross website so we know you made a donation to such a great cause.”
$10.00 is the minimum online donation and is tax deductible. You can donate to the Red Cross by clicking here.
So I guess the million-dollar question on everyone’s mind is; will the new album and tour be a success or a flop? Will Bieber fade away just like so many others before him, or is this just the beginning? I guess we will have to wait until November to find out.
