Could the Bieber tide at long last be turning?
Justin Bieber fans in London are venting their anger at the tiny teeny-bopper, after a concert scheduled for last night started more than two hours late.
Exhausted mothers and fathers (his fans are barely old enough to stay up past 9 p.m., let alone drive) are also expressing their anger at having to wait around for the Beeb to finish up his set.
Concertgoers said the the diminutive Canuck finally showed up onstage at the O2 Arena on Monday at 10:30 p.m., when the start time had been listed as 8:30.
There were teenage girls crying outside. The ladies sitting with us had to leave after 20 minutes and they had spent 70 quid (£70, about $106) each on a ticket, which is really bad. It's one thing if your demographic is 50-year-olds, but his demographic is lots of little girls who need to go home and go to bed.
Bieber himself seems to be in denial though (maybe it's the weed?) and maintained on Twitter that he was only 40 minutes late.
i was 40 min late to stage. there is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset. However it was great show and Im proud of that

The response was less than generous.
Can't believe Justin Bieber was an hour and a half late for his 02 London gig cause he was playing on his Xbox #TopTwat

Parents of Justin Bieber fans were "horrified at wasting hundreds of pounds on tickets" when he turned up on time and started singing

Justin Bieber was 2 hours late to a concert in London last night. I guess even Justin Bieber doesn't want to go to a Justin Bieber concert.

Justin Bieber gets booed for being 2 hours late for his own concert... By the time he arrived, many fans had gone through puberty.
