The Believe Tour is the second world tour by the Canadian singer-songwriter who famously rose to global superstardom after cultivating a dedicated fan base of 'Beliebers' on YouTube. On the road since Sept. 2012, the Believe Tour follows the release of Beiber's third studio album, the June 2012 platinum-selling Believe. To date, the tour has played 100 cities across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, generating over US$67 million in ticket sales, largely through sold-out arena shows.
With worldwide album sales in excess of 15 million units, the multi-award winning Bieber has dominated pop culture and social media, attracting more than 55 million Facebook fans and over 41 million Twitter followers - the most in Twitter's history, catapulting him to its coveted No. 1 spot. With his YouTube page approaching 4 billion views, he is one of the most popular YouTube artists of all time. Not surprisingly, the Billboard Music Awards selected Bieber as the 2012 Social Artist of the Year. In 2013, he was honoured with three more Billboard Awards: Top Male Artist; Top Social Artist; and Billboard's first-ever Milestone Award, selected by fans for musical innovation and ingenuity.
With January's No.1 debut of his third remix album, Believe Acoustic, the Canadian recording artist made history by becoming the first-ever artist to earn five No.1 albums before his 19th birthday. First week sales of Believe Acoustic totaled 211,000 units, and the album was also No.1 on iTunes in more than 60 countries. Separately, this accomplishment makes him just the 10th act to achieve a No.1 album in four consecutive years, putting him in the company of a handful of artists holding that rare distinction, including Jay-Z (7 years), the Beatles (6 years), and Paul McCartney/Wings (5 years).
