Justin Bieber tours into 2013 with "Believe"
Teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber will make fans dreams come true later this year as he canvases North America through early 2013 behind his forthcoming studio set, "Believe."
The 18-year-old pop superstar kicks off excursion in support of his fourth album with a Sept. 29 performance in Glendale, AZ. Thirty-one shows scattered across the continent are slated through year's end, with the multi-platinum artist wrapping up for the holiday season with a Dec. 1 concert in Toronto.
After the New Year, Bieber will return to the road, beginning with a Jan. 5 performance in Salt Lake City. That leg pushes through a dozen major markets before concluding Jan. 26 in Miami.
The full North American trek will feature YouTube sensation Carly Rae Jepsen as opening support.
Tickets for Canadian shows begin June 1, while U.S. dates go on sale June 2. Fan club members will have first dibs beginning today (5/23), and American Express cardholders can enjoy a pre-sale opportunity from May 24 through May 31.
One dollar from each ticket sold will benefit Pencils of Promise, a charity that "works to build schools and increase educational opportunities in the developing world. The goal is to build 15 schools around the world for needy children," according to a press release.
Bieber will release "Believe," his fourth studio effort, June 19 via Island Records. The new collection includes the chart-topping single, "Boyfriend," which set a world record by debuting at No. 1 on iTunes in 32 countries. The video for the track has received more than 44 million YouTube views since its May 3 premiere.
The impending release, which was produced by an array of established professionals, features guest appearances by Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, Drake and Big Sean.
