Justin Bieber recently made his debut in Mumbai, India. While the initial response was excitement from the pre-teen and teenage audience (as well as groans from their parents), the concert has since been met with an enormous backlash. From the alleged lip-syncing to wearing baseball shorts, Beliebers were left disappointed.
Well, we were at the gig and it’s silly to claim that the entire concert was a lip-sync performance. Here’s this: Justin Bieber is a performer who is here to put up a great show and some quality entertainment. Unfortunately for Biebs, it seems like he fell short in that department with many stating he seemed uninterested and low on energy. Also, the baseball shorts seem to bother people for some reason (!!).
While the alleged lip-syncing hogged the media limelight, there seems to be no end to the list of complaints that came along (after that baseball shorts). Thirsty Beliebers had to spend Rs 100 (later Rs 200) for a 1-litre bottle of water and adding to the woes was that water wasn’t allowed inside the stadium. So, well, chug-it-all then.
While everyone attends concerts for different reasons, most will agree that they are pursuing a memorable experience. In a way, Justin Bieber fulfilled that expectation with an experience that fans are unlikely to forget anytime soon. And well, Global Citizen set the tone, Bieber came along and soon Sheeran… We’d just like to soak in some more international act magic.
