Have you got the fever? Justin Bieber comes to UK arenas for spring 2011 tour

Justin Bieber

Yes, the most Googled man (or boy) on the planet is Justin Bieber and he is finally coming over to the UK for a tour to cause murmuring hearts and trembling knees to the female fraternity (and quite possibly some lads as well, possibly for different reasons). He has just announced four UK dates for March next year, potentially the fastest selling concert-tickets since Take That. Think I'm kidding? Check this out - he's already released an autobiography (he's 16) and has caused panic amongst several police chiefs across the States, not because he's a gun-totin' homie, but simply because of the sheer volume of kids trying to get into his gigs. Better tell the Met then.

The first dates are in Birmingham on the 4th and 5th March, Liverpool is next on 11th, Newcastle on 12th, then a double-double in London (14th and 16th) and Manchester on 20th and 21st March, with Sheffield getting some Bieber action on 23rd and Nottingham's Trent FM Arena on 24th March. Tickets go on sale this Friday (19th November) at 9am, priced at £29.50 upwards plus fees.

Although he has notched up two Top 10 hits with "One Time" and "Baby", Bieber has yet to 'break' the UK in the same way as he has in the States, Canada, Australia and, curiously, Germany (apparently, according to one report of a TV interview he hadn't heard of 'Germans'), but give it time - watch those tickets fly out.

Update: Third O2 Arena date added!

Due to demand, an extra O2 Arena date has been added for 17th March. Tickets go on sale this afternoon at 1pm.
