SOME 25,000 people are expected to watch the Justin Bieber concert tonight at the Mall of Asia open grounds, said a source in the production team, who added that tickets are sold out, except for the Bronze and General Admission sections.
Another source claimed that Smart, the country’s leading telecom company, bankrolled the event, spending at least P50 million to bring in Bieber and hiring a production outfit to mount the show.
“He’s a clown, like any other teenaged boy,” Poreotics dance crew member Lawrence Devera said of Bieber, in an interview with the Inquirer on Friday.
Devera and the rest of Poreotics first met Bieber when they appeared on the music video of “Somebody to Love,” the second single off the Canadian teen pop star’s “My World 2.0” album.
Composed of three Filipinos (Devera, Jet Li Valles, Chad Mayate) and three Vietnamese (Dumbo, Can and Charles Nguyen), Poreotics will open Bieber’s concert.
“We’re not celebrities. We’re just normal, regular guys who love to dance,” they said, brushing aside their newfound fame after winning America’s Best Dance Crew season 5 last year.
