Justin Bieber Announces Latin America Tour Dates, Sparks Outrage Over Skipping Venezuela
Justin Bieber has announced the Latin American leg of dates for his global Believe Tour, but it was not without controversy.
The Biebs is hitting some big venues on this run, but then again, he's Justin Bieber and he has millions of Beliebers, so he'll no doubt be filling the seats! He is slated to hit a dozen countries in Latin America, from Brazil to Paraguay from Oct. 19 through Nov. 19.
However, the fact that Venezuela was left off his itinerary led Beliebers to voice their displeasure on Twitter, and made it a trending topic.
The #Venezuelawantsbelievetour hashtag trended on Twitter, according to Billboard. Fans in Uruguay and Peru, other countries not on the tour routing, also used the social media site to protest.
Biebs is very active on Twitter, so perhaps he saw the chatter and is working with his team to add those countries to his future tour plans. Fingers crossed!
