Popstar Justin Bieber sold out two nights in Dublin’s O2 yesterday within minutes – as his eager fans rushed to get their hands on the tickets.
The first concert went on sale at 9am yesterday morning and minutes later another date was announced due to the huge demand from the Beliebers.
But both dates sold out almost immediately solidifying the18-year-oldís status as one of the biggest stars in the country amongst Irish teens.
Fans queued overnight to buy the tickets and they revealed their huge excitement about the concert online.
One fans said: “Justin Bieber. 17th February. Dublin. Me and Justin Bieber in the same room, I can’t even breathe right now.”
And another added: “I want Justin Bieber to notice me for my birthdaay! What a birthday present. Dublin tix in 4 hours and havnt slept a wink!”
The young Canadian has a vertigo inducing 127 million YouTube hits for his recent hit song Boyfriend. But his biggest hit Baby which he released two years ago has an incredible 769 million hits.
The singer is fresh from celebrating his number one album Believe and his song Boyfriend set a world-record for debuting at number one on iTunes in 32 countries.
Justin is currently in rehearsals for the world tour which kicks off at the end of September in the US and finishes up in April in Finland.
The two dates in Dublin mark the start of the tour in Europe and the day after his concert on the 18th of February he will play in the Manchester Arena.
Bieber, who is dating Disney babe Selena Gomez, visited Ireland last year and caused chaos in Dublin as his fans chased him aimlessly around the capital.
His fans surrounded the O2 for hours before he was due to perform and he was thrilled to be in Ireland to perform for them.

“I want to say thank you to all my Irish fans for all the support and love. You are awesome.
“It’s really nice here, it’s my first time. I love it, it’s been amazing. Everyone has been great, the fans have been amazing.
“Making music is something that I love and my fans are really involved and love my music. It’s great to see new fans and be a part of it. I’m always excited about performing, I love performing.”
