Justin Bieber can usually do no wrong with his fans, but the pop star has caused upset for some devoted Beliebers. The Sorry singer is reported to be charging around $2,000 (£1,314) for a special meet-and-greet package on his upcoming Purpose tour and not everyone is happy with the price.
Bieber, 21, embarks on a 58-date tour of North America from 9 March 2016. Several US ticket-selling websites have begun advertising packages, including one titled the Ultimate Purpose Experience, which offer fans the chance to take a selfie with the Canadian singer, a tour backstage and an official tour plaque to take home.
Altitude Tickets is offering this package for $2,000, while the I'll Show You VIP Purpose Experience is priced at $925 and the Where Are You Now VIP Purpose Experience is $375.
Clearly unable to afford the meet-and-greet prices, many of Bieber's young fans have expressed their anger on Twitter, using the hashtag #justiceforbrokelieber.
One wrote: "I'm less excited for the purpose tour because of the prices.They are ridiculous and the meet and greets will flop bye#justiceforbrokelieber."
Another said: "I WANNA EXPERIENCE THIS WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY LIKE A RICH MAN #justiceforbrokeliebers," while yet another chimed in: "Justin: wants people to treat him like a normal person but wants $2000 for a selfie."
The What Do You Mean hitmaker is set to perform in cities including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia and his native Canada before rounding off the tour with a show at Madison Square Garden in New York on 18 July.
Bieber's album soared to the top of the iTunes chart in the US within hours of release, but in the UK, 1D appear to be winning the race with their fifth studio album – which is currently 14,000 copies ahead of Purpose in combined sales.
Tickets for Bieber's tour go on sale in the US at 10am on 20 November.
