He tried to appease fans with one quick song, but it wasn’t enough to quench their mad thirst for the Biebs!
Seriously, you guys — Bieber fever is getting dangerous! Eight of the Biebs’ female fans fainted and had to be hospitalized while camping out for his televised Apr. 26 concert in Sydney, Australia. The Huffington Post reports that fans were waiting as early as 2 a.m. to see him perform, and eventually created what police call a “mass scene of hysteria,” prompting them to pull the plug on the whole show. 5,000 fans were reportedly on the scene. “I love my fans….and I am just as disappointed as everyone else with the news from this morning,” Justin tweeted first-thing Apr. 26. “I want to sing for my fans.”
He eventually did get to perform “Baby” inside the TV studio, but was one song enough to appease those wild Biebettes?
“With everything that happened 2day i want u all 2 know i care and U all rule and if i could thank every 1 of u individually i would,” he continued. “I love my fans…I love it here in Australia…and I want to sing… Im very happy about the welcome and the love from around the world, but I want everyone to still remember my fans safety comes first.”
Watch the madness unfold below:
Of course, this isn’t the first time Bieber fever has led to a scary situation. His Nov. 20, 2009 appearance at Long Island’s Roosevelt Field Mall was canceled after an estimated crowd of 10,000 reportedly showed up to meet him.
But Justin’s trip to Australia wasn’t all bad. Just look at these photos of him having fun on Sydney’s Whale Beach!
