Summerfest today revealed more than 100 headliners for this September's three-weekend festival – but unfortunately one of their previously announced main acts won't be amongst them. Justin Bieber officially pushed his upcoming "Justice" tour back to 2022.
Making his first appearance in Milwaukee since 2012 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, Bieber was originally scheduled to open Summerfest 2020 and serve as the first show in the newly revamped American Family Insurance Amphitheater. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the tour and his Milwaukee stop was rescheduled from 2020 to June 26, 2021 – a date no longer a part of this year's Big Gig.
But never say never, Beliebers, because even though the pop star won't make it to the Big Gig this year, Bieber rescheduled his Brew City Amp show for next summer: Friday, June 24, 2022, the final stop on his 52-date North American tour.
Tickets for the new date are on sale now at Ticketmaster. As for those who already bought admission, "Hold On" ... to your tickets because they will be honored for the new date. Ticketholders should receive an email with more updates, but for more information, visit Justin Bieber's website.
Is it too late now to say sorry ... for delivering this bad news?
Well, if you need to feel better, just take another look at the newly released Summerfest lineup, which may not have Bieber but is still "Yummy" nevertheless. (OK, that's all the puns I've got.)
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
