Justin Bieber Causes Riot in Australia

Posted by Randy

Hot pop star Justin Bieber was supposed to perform a mini-concert for the morning TV show, Sunrise, in Sydney last weekend, but the Australian police had to order the cancellation of the show after thousands of teenage fans suddenly went crazy and started causing some serious security issues.  Almost 4,000 screaming fans came to watch Justin, some of them camping out as early as 3:00 in the morning.

When the rumor that the Canadian teen-idol came early in the venue spread through, the crowd started rushing to the stage, pushing each other and eventually breaking down barriers. The riot caused atleast 10 girls to pass out, one of them even had her knee fractured.

Justin reacted to the incident via twitter, saying,

“I am just as disappointed as everyone else with the news from this morning. I want to sing for my fans… I woke up this morning to the police canceling the show for safety reasons. … I love my fans … I love it here in Australia … and I want to sing…. 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.”
