Justin Bieber shows in Dublin sell out within minutes

Fans queue all night for tickets to Dublin shows at 3Arena on November 1st and 2nd

Justin Bieber fans, known as Beliebers, queued overnight for tickets to his 2016 Dublin concerts, both of which sold out within minutes.

Tickets for his Dublin dates at the 3Arena on November 1st and 2nd went on sale at 9am from recognised Ticketmaster outlets and justinbieber.com.

About 100 fans began queuing from the early hours outside the Ticketmaster outlet in the Thurles Shopping Centre.

“It lashed rain all night,” said a cold Lisa Fogarty, who started queueing outside the Eason in the Co Tipperary town at 4pm on Wednesday, as soon as they finished school. “But it’ll be worth it to get the tickets.”


“We had one umbrella between three of us,” said Emily McGuigan. “But we’re all happy.”

Bieber’s latest album Purpose was released on November 13th and went to No.1 in more than 100 countries including the United States.

The Purpose tour starts in Seattle, Washington, on March 9th.
