You better Beliebe it!
Grammy-nominated pop superstar Justin Bieber is coming to the Barclays Center this fall, according to arena officials who announced that the 18-year-old heartthrob — potentially the most famous Canadian of all-time — will perform at the Prospect Heights venue on Nov. 2.
“Justin Bieber is more than a great performer, he’s an icon for his generation,” said Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark. “Justin’s show at Barclays Center furthers our goal to deliver artists that reflect the diverse talent of Brooklyn.”
Bieber’s stop in Brooklyn is part of his “Believe” tour across North America to promote his latest album.
Fans afflicted with Biebermania can purchase tickets for the show online starting on June 2.
But the teen singing sensation — who rose to prominence after being discovered on YouTube in 2007 — won’t be the first A-lister to perform at the Brooklyn Nets’ future home on Atlantic and Flatbush avenues.
Eight-time Grammy award-winner and Brooklyn legend Barbra Streisand WIll play two homecoming shows at the $1-billion arena in October.
Other musicians coming to the 18,200-seat venue include rap mogul and Nets part-owner Jay-Z, who’ll open the Barclays Center on Sept. 28, Rush, and Leonard Cohen.
