Get ready for a cacophany of teenage shrieking as the Justin Bieber tour to South Africa draws near.

Big Concerts have now officially confirmed the tour dates, with this pop sensation scheduled to play Cape Town stadium on May 8, and then the FNB stadium in Johannesburg on May 12.

Tickets for the Johannesburg show will go on sale on Monday, December 10, at 9am. Booking your spot to see Bieber live will set you back between R315 and R750. Tickets for the Cape Town show will go on sale the next day, with the price range being R315 to R700. All tickets are available either through Computicket, or online through Children 14-years-old and under must be accompanied by a legal guardian, giving this award-winning star the chance to make Beliebers out of a few parents as well.

Justin Bieber is the first artist to have seven songs from a debut album chart on the Billboard Hot 100. That 2009 album ‘My World’ spawned the hits ‘Baby’ and ‘Somebody to Love’. His most recent album ‘Believe’ debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200 and has reached number one in 30 countries. The hit singles ‘Boyfriend’, ‘As Long As You Love Me’ and ‘Die in Your Arms’ have all charted in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Bieber is a social media phenomenon as well, with over 44-million Facebook fans and around 23-million Twitter followers.
