Beliebers rejoice — Justin Bieber is going on tour, coming to Wells Fargo Center.

In addition to his headlining slot at the Power 96.1 Jingle Ball next month at Philips Arena, Bieber will return to the venue April 12 as part of his 58-date “Purpose” world tour. With his days of egg-pelting his neighbors, driving too fast and European monkey abandonment apparently behind him, Justin Bieber is ready to launch his first major North American tour since 2013.The pop star announced his “Purpose World Tour” on Wednesday, which kicks off on March 9, 2016, in Seattle and wraps in New York City at Madison Square Garden on July 18, 2016. He has already teased an eclectic handful of singles off of the LP, including “Where Are U Now,” “What Do You Mean?,” “Sorry,” and most recently, “The Feeling” with indie pop star Halsey. Tickets go on sale Friday, when Bieber will release his new album, “Purpose.” Two songs from his album, “What Do You Mean” and “Sorry,” are currently in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

The tour, which concludes May 19 in Toronto, will include six California concerts, including a March 29 date at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center (formerly the San Diego Sports Arena). Now Beliebers can rejoice once more when the pop idol himself comes to the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, May 7 and Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on Friday, July 15 on his first tour in over three years. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets for the U.S. shows before the general public beginning Monday, November 16 at noon through Thursday, November 19 at 10pm. From celebrity plug-ins to graffiti signs to an entire week appearing on Ellen, fan excitement over the imminent album drop continues to reach new peaks.

However, Beliebers have been cued in for an additional surprise that revolves around the title track, “Purpose.” One of the producers credited on the record is 17-year-old Pittsburgh native named Stephen Philibin, better known by his stage name Steve James. However, in an unusual promotion, from Thursday through Nov. 19, Lyft users will be able to buy the album for $5 by “sliding into Bieber mode.” But first, they have to take a $5 ride with Lyft (one of Uber’s biggest competitors). The up and coming artist received his driver’s license only six months ago, but he and his team have confirmed that the opportunity “couldn’t have been any more perfect.” Steve spent his summer in Los Angeles with managers Jay Cao and Brett Bassock, who helped coordinate the studio sessions.

Bieber first became a star as a Canadian kid posting YouTube videos of himself playing music, which led to a record deal and his 2010 debut album “My World 2.0.” Since then, his music career and personal life have been followed with equal fervor, with the latter sometimes overshadowing it all. It also remains to be seen if Bieber will be less temperamental than at his Oct. 29 show in Oslo, Norway, where he abruptly ended his performance after one song, after concertgoers apparently got in his way when he tried to wipe up a liquid on the stage. I’m not doing the show.” Tickets for Bieber’s hopefully liquid-free stage March 29 San Diego concert are priced at $50.59 to $116 each, plus service charges.
