In his first performance in three years, Justin Bieber is ready to kick the year out the door with an epic livestream on New Year’s Eve with T-Mobile.
Has it really been three years since Justin Bieber last took to the stage? Technically, yes, because while it was all systems go for his Chances Tour early this year, the mighty pummelling of the pandemic said, “Nope, not this time, buddy.” From optimistically downsizing the effort to outright canceling it, better believe it has been that long since the multiple Grammy Award nominee made the fans go wild at his energetic performances, his musical explorations, and of course, his signature sound. However, there has been no lack of his presence over the blurred out stretch that is the year about to end, because while keeping us up to date on his social media, popping up on talk shows, and gushing over the love of his life, Hailey Bieber, Justin Bieber has been dishing out collaborations (Lonely with Benny Blanco, Holy Feat. Chance The Rapper, and Monster with Shawn Mendes) to at least in his own way, help air out the collective dread and doom that have been the desensitized norm for everyone.
“See you on NYE,” he teases in an Instagram Story, taking us behind-the-scenes of his befitting punctuation to the year. A holiday gift to his fans and to finally end the years-long drought of his performances of epic proportions, T-Mobile is presenting New Year’s Live with Justin Bieber to rock out to what has to go and ring in a fresh new start, which we are all in dire need of. “I can’t wait to partner on this epic New Year’s Eve concert with them, and give everyone a safe way to kick 2020 out the door, together,” says the pop star in a statement detailing his return to the live stage. “We’re working on more surprises to watch out for during this special night.”
While the larger-than-life coming together that is typical of counting down from New Year’s Eve to New Year’s Day is out of the question for the time being, Justin Bieber and T-Mobile are mounting a full-length livestream event on December 31 at 10:15 ET through JustinBieberNYE.com, with re-airings on January 1 at 5:00 AM and 3:00 PM ET.
