Justin Bieber’s hugely successful Purpose Tour continues to soar amid news of a North American stadium tour next year.
The pop prince confirmed he’ll be bringing his hits-packed, visually sumptuous spectacular back to the U.S for a second leg during an onstage Q&A session at his concert in Hamburg, Germany, on Monday night.
Named after Bieber’s acclaimed, multi-million-selling latest album Purpose, the global tour kicked off on March 9 in Seattle, Washington, before packing out arenas across the U.S.
The superstar is currently steaming through his European leg. He made the second leg announcement by chance when a fan asked, “Is there going to be a Purpose Tour movie?” as the last question of the now traditional Q&A’s Justin hosts during his shows.
Replying to the question, the 22-year-old replied, “I don’t know yet.”
“We haven’t really discussed it yet,” he continued, “But, I still have another year to talk about it because I’m on tour for a while.”
Justin then changed topics, adding, “I’m doing stadiums in North America which is going to be pretty awesome,” before jokingly telling the Hamburg audience that was the part of his answer they could scream over.
Returning to the film question, the Grammy winner went on to say, “Yeah. So, hopefully we do a Purpose Tour movie.”
For Beliebers eager to see their idol on a celluloid screen, there was also a tantalizing hint of more.
The Biebs said, “If not, I’ll be doing other movies, which will be pretty cool.”
Watch the moment on the video below.
Back in October, it was announced that Bieber would play stadiums in Australia and New Zealand for the first time when his Purpose World Tour heads down under in early 2017.
That solidified into five dates, which the Canadian star and Dutch buddy and EDM producer DJ Martin Garrix will fulfill in March between concerts in South America.
The run opens on March 6 at Perth’s nib Stadium. The Purpose Tour then goes to Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney, before wrapping up on March 18 at the Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.

For anyone excited about the prospect of Bieber stepping up his concert game when he performs in stadiums for the first time, the singer’s teases about a Purpose Tour movie and other films add to the good news.
While the heartthrob only expressed hope about a tour movie, footage of shows reveals professional cameras are recording every concert. So, while discussions are ongoing, it is clear Team Bieber is making sure the raw material for a potential film is being gathered.
Back in 2011, the Biebs’ first movie, Never Say Never, went on to make over $100 million worldwide and is still the most successful film of its kind, setting a precedent for modern concert documentaries.
2013’s successor, Believe, based on the same name album and tour, pulled in a fraction of that and was widely panned. For context, it opened during Christmas and followed a difficult few months for the singer.
However, as Bieber and others in his circle have said in multiple interviews, the star subsequently turned his life around with the help of his renewed faith in God and friends and literally found his purpose.
Fast forward to today, it’s clear the Biebs is keen to explore the acting world.
