Justin Bieber’s concert in Sydney was cancelled over safety concerns.
Fans of Justin Bieber may have booked flights to Sydney in order to see the teen pop sensation sing, but anyone arriving in the Australian city ahead of the concert would have been disappointed.
Organisers decided to cancel the event on Monday morning due to safety concerns.
Thousands of teenage girls arrived at the Overseas Passenger Terminal near Sydney Harbour for the show where the 16-year-old star was due to perform three songs.
Although the original concert was cancelled, Justin made an appearance to fans and sang one tune for them.
The American star commented that he “loves Australia” in a Twitter post, adding that he was also disappointed about the cancellation of the gig.
Adam Boland, director of morning television at Channel Seven, told the Sydney Morning Herald that he believed the company made the right decision about Justin’s performance.
“We understand the frustration of some of the kids. A lot left more satisfied [after the Martin Place performance] but ultimately the safety of them must come first,” he stated.
