Justin Bieber Will Perform At Last London 02 Show Despite Collapse, Say Organizers

Justin Bieber will perform at his last show at London’s O2 Arena tonight after he experienced breathing difficulties on stage and collapsed backstage last night, say event organizers.

Promoters of the 02 venue posted a message on their official twitter feed this morning, which reads: “Good morning everyone. As things stand Justin Bieber is still set to perform the final night of his shows at The O2 this evening.”

The 19-year-old interrupted his Thursday night show — his third in a four week run at the 02 — after feeling light-headed on stage, representatives for the Canadian pop star said.

The singer rushed off stage to the backstage area where he collapsed. On-site medical staff gave him oxygen to alleviate his shortness of breath. While the star was absent, Jaden smith and Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun explained to the audience why the show had come to a halt. Braun told fans:

“Justin got very light of breath, the whole show he’s been complaining. He’s backstage with the EMTs [emergency medical team] and the doctor.

“They’re telling him they want him to go and see somebody and find out what’s going on with his lungs, he’s just told me that in five minutes, if it’s OK with you guys, he’s going to come out and finish the show.”

“So he might not be jumping around as much and everything else, if you guys will be patient with us, we’re not trying to be disrespectful, we’re not trying to have you guys get home late, we’re truly trying to put on a show for these beautiful people in London… he’s going to come back out here very soon and we’re going to do the best job to finish the show as best we can. Thanks guys for bearing with us. “

Bieber returned to the stage after a 20 minute break to huge applause from the crowd and completed the show. He was taken to a nearby hospital immediately afterwards.

Around 1 am [UK local time], the teen star posted a message to his 35.6 million followers on Twitter, in which he said: “Getting better. thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love.”

He then uploaded an Instagram picture of himself from his hospital bed, saying he was listening to Janis Joplin, also posting a picture of the hospital corridor which he captioned as “creepy.”
