YES I SAW BIEBER
So on 8 May 2013 – it was the best day of my life to date! Justin Bieber finally noticed South Africa after all the nagging on Twitter and various other social media. Justin was scheduled to perform at Cape Town stadium on the 8 May. All the local Beliebers created such a vibe and some of them even slept outside the stadium in order to get front row golden circle. In December 2012 the tickets went on sale and within 4 minutes they were all sold out.
So on the day – I walked from the CBD with my sister and brother and behind the stadium (where he was performing) a car drove by and the window was rolled down and OMG GUESS WHO SAT IN THE BACK SEAT?! YES IT WAS JUSTIN!
The atmosphere was such a vibe though. We entered the stadium with bated breath and you could feel the “gees” of the crowd. I saw so many familiar faces – which I thought was strange and not so strange in its own right. I thought – what are the chances of seeing people I know amongst 40 000+ people – but on the flip side – most of my friends are beliebers.
Before Justin came on stage there was a 10 minute countdown. The crowd went absolutely mental! The excitement as the crowd counted down every minute. Justin then came on and the crowd roared and totally erupted! Justin performed all the songs that were said to be on his set list with the exception of 2. It was an exciting performance with crowd interactions. The videography and the stage set up worked in tandem with each other. For example, at the end of his first song, he jumped on the stage and below the stage there was a screen. So he jumped on the stage and the screen below him showed that he jumped into a pool and swam with all his dancers as well. It was a different, yet fantastic, visual.
The concert was thoroughly enjoyed with masses of people smiling, dancing and singing as they left the stadium. Thank you Justin. Please come back to CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA.
