Justin Bieber Will Head to Japan on My World Tour Despite His Fearful Crew
Justin Bieber will 'Never Say Never' when it comes to performing for his fans, even if his crew doesn't want to come along for the ride. Despite the fears many of his crew members express on visiting Japan, Bieber has confirmed that he will not be canceling any of his scheduled gigs in the devastated country.
A few days ago, TMZ released a report saying that members of Bieber's tour crew were scared of heading to Japan because of the threat of radiation and another possible earthquake. In addition to the obvious reasons, the crew members also cited Avril Lavigne's and Slash's canceled tour dates as examples as to why they should steer clear of the Asian country.
After the crew members began voicing their concerns, Bieber's manager Scooter Braun told them to "Man the f--- up and do the right thing by these kids." Braun also attempted to squash their fears by explaining that Maroon 5 would be touring Japan as well.
Bieber himself also refused to side with the worrisome crew, tweeting, "5 shows left of this leg of the #myworldtour! Manila, Hong Kong, Taipei, Osaka and Tokyo! Like I said...we are going to JAPAN! #supportjapan," on Sunday.
Bieber will be hitting the stage in Osaka on May 18 and will entertain fans in Tokyo on May 19.
