Justin Bieber absolutely thrilled Brazilian fans at Rio De Janeiro’s Praca da Apoteose downtown venue with his “Purpose World Tour” on Wednesday night.
Justin performed for over 40,000 fans in a hit-packed, visually sumptuous concert, which included amazing fireworks throughout, an “I love my Beliebers” declaration, and an emotional highlight when the pop icon wrapped himself in a Brazilian flag before singing his faith-inspired “Purpose” ballad.
Watch the clip below for a taste of how fans reacted to the Biebs’ arrival onstage.
An engaged Bieber delivered bangers such as “Where Are U Now,” “Sorry,” “What Do You Mean,” and a slew of older chart-toppers to the rapturous Brazilian audience, who sang along with every song and screamed excitedly throughout the Canadian’s 90-minute extravaganza.
Fans’ participation was particularly moving during the numinous “Life Is Worth Living” and the acoustic segment of the Grammy winner’s show when he performed “Cold Water” and the worldwide smash “Love Yourself.”
As one might expect in the concert of a former teenage idol, the younger generation got their traditional moment to shine during “Children,” a Skrillex-produced track that also features on the Biebs’ six-million-selling Purpose album.

At one point during the sold-out show, Justin told the audience, “Been an amazing crowd tonight, the energy is unbelievable. Today has been one of the best nights of my life.”
Then, at another poignant moment, the singer said, “Thank you, Brazil! I love my Beliebers!”
There might not have been a dry eye in the house when the Biebs performed “Purpose” while wearing the Brazilian flag just before the concert encore.
When the pop star signed off at the end of his “Purpose” show, the evidently happy singer reportedly told the ecstatic crowd, “Tonight was one of the best nights of my life! Thank you for having me, Brazil!”
To date, Bieber has performed over 125 “Purpose Tour” concerts during his global trek. At the start of 2017, he upgraded to stadiums, reflecting the record-breaking success of his latest album. And it definitely seems as if the superstar loved every minute of his Rio show.
The Biebs’ manager, Scooter Braun, raved afterwards in an Instagram post.
“He is a light. Proud of him. Incredible show and reaction in Brazil,” he wrote.
After the show, Justin met two youngsters and their families through the Make-A-Wish foundation. The star has supported the organization since the start of his professional career back in 2009.
In a comment posted on Instagram, the girls described the Biebs as an “angel.”

Local reports say the two females, who attended Bieber’s show, were invited to an after-party held in the singer’s honor with about 700 VIPs present at the Hotel Fasano in the South Zone of Rio De Janeiro.
Both ladies then went on to a private party with the singer and his friends at a luxe mansion in the Joatinga neighborhood. It is claimed Marina left the residence alone at around 8 a.m., and Luciana stayed on at the house.
Naturally, the rumor mill and fans went into overdrive since Justin Bieber is apparently not allowed to stand, sit next to, or talk to the opposite sex without thousands acting as if the sky has caved in.
