Justin Bieber's 'Believe' tour to take influence from Michael Jackson
Justin Bieber's upcoming 'Believe' tour will take influence from King of Pop Michael Jackson, according to his manager.
Scooter Braun revealed that Bieber has been studying Jackson concerts from the 1980s and 1990s as he prepares for his 'Believe' world tour, which is due to begin in North America in September.
Braun said that Bieber wants to include some Jackson style "magic and pyro" into his concerts as he looks to emulate the legendary singer's famed showmanship. He said:
"He has been watching a tremendous amount of Michael Jackson concerts from the '80s and '90s. And he has been talking to me about how Michael incorporated magic and pyro and reveals and he wants to bring in that. [But] still do that acoustic thing, but he wants to take it to a whole new level."
Braun added that he feels his client's "dancing and musicianship" have come on leaps and bounds in the past few years. He said:
"It's just really exciting. Nothing makes him happier than being onstage. So it's gonna be fun to get back onto the road. I think he was an amazing performer before, but his level of dance and musicianship and his range [has grown]. He's a veteran now. I think he wants to take it to a completely new level."
