Justin Bieber Drops Mic, Walks Off After Urging Fans to Stop Screaming
Justin Bieber took the nuclear option when screaming fans in Manchester, England wouldn’t settle down: he walked off stage.
The Canadian pop star’s frustrations came to a head during the last of three Purpose tour dates at Manchester’s Arena
Bieber walked after pleading with fans to quieten down in the pause between songs (to no effect). "I appreciate all the support, I appreciate love I appreciate the kind things,” Bieber told fans Sunday night (Oct. 23). “But the screaming in these breaks has got to stop. Please and thank you. I don't think it's necessary when I'm trying to say something and you guys are screaming."
When his Beliebers continued to squeal, he dropped his microphone and left the stage. Some fans booed as he walked off, the BBC reports.
Bieber has struggled with the noise from his fans during the U.K. leg of his tour. He made headlines last week when he told fans at a show in Birmingham to "take a chill pill" after insisting, "the screaming is just so obnoxious."
At another show, he tried -- and failed -- once more to have a deep conversation with his audience as they continued to holler.
The pop star’s tour moves on to Birmingham’s Genting Arena on Monday night (Oct. 24).
