Exploring NJ ties to Justin Bieber amid his axed tour
There's thousands of disappointed New Jersey fans, after Justin Bieber abruptly cancelled the rest of his tour this week. While refunds are being processed for the pair of August MetLife Stadium shows, there's a good chance 'the Bieb' might pop back up in a different north Jersey area.
Back in May, Bieber was spotted all over Montclair. The pop superstar even cheered on a young Jersey girl while she was performing for a sidewalk crowd along South Park Street.
It has gotten to the point where fans have dedicated their summer to tracking down Bieber for a New Jersey encounter of their own. There's been tweets inviting the pop star out for coffee or playa bowls in Montclair.
Montclair is where pastor Carl Lentz leads Sunday services for his Evangelical church, Hillsong NYC. He also lives in Upper Montclair, after moving this summer from neighboring Glen Ridge with his wife and three children. There's been conflicting rumors that a focus on his faith sparked Bieber to cancel his remaining tour dates.
So, there's still a strong chance Jersey fans will be seeing Bieber in the Garden State before Labor Day. It just won't be on stage as many ticket holders had planned.
