Justin Bieber is returning to North Texas for his biggest concert yet.
Just over a year after selling out the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Canadian pop superstar Bieber is bringing his “Purpose World Tour” to Arlington’s AT&T Stadium July 29.
Earlier this year, Bieber’s Dallas concert, which marked his first North Texas appearance in three years, was a fascinating glimpse of an artist in transition, as I wrote in April: “The nearly two-hour concert was stuffed to overflowing with a little something for everyone: lasers, pyro, more than a dozen dancers, a secondary stage with a trampoline embedded in it, and — why not? — a drum solo.”
“With the restless sensibility inherent in the fast-twitch, Adderall-stoked audience (which, perhaps unsurprisingly, cut a wide demographic swath — young and old alike were piled into the arena), Bieber flitted from electronic dance music to slow-burn R&B to elastic, perky pop to hip-hop and back again, trying on different styles like so many costume changes, of which there were also plenty.”
One of those found Bieber wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey with Dak Prescott’s No. 4 drawing cheers from the crowd.
