Beliebers have lined up and rolled out sleeping bags outside Rockefeller Center days ahead of the 'Boyfriend' singer's free mini-concert on Friday, June 15 morning.
Bieber fever strikes New York City as the Canadian teen heartthrob is scheduled to visit NBC's morning show "Today". While Justin Bieber is not going to appear until Friday, June 15 morning, a bunch of fans have camped out outside the show's studio at Rockefeller Center since earlier this week.
One Belieber, a 16-year-girl named Amina, came from Brooklyn and arrived on the spot Tuesday at 6 o'clock in the morning. "He's an inspiration to us all to live our dreams and 'never say never'," she told Celebuzz which visited the site.
17-year-old Hayley, meanwhile, came with her sister. "We came to the 'Today' show last November, but we were way, way in the back, so we got out front this time," she shared to MTV. "And we're going to see him this time because he's amazing and beautiful."
Though a little rain fell on the city Wednesday afternoon, Hayley and her sister wouldn't leave the place. "The rain has been a big issue because I really don't like getting my hair wet, honestly, but everybody here has been pretty good. We just have umbrellas, because we're not allowed to have tents," so she explained.
The 18-year-old singing sensation caused a hysteria when a car that carried him drove down West 48th street where his fans were camping out. Hyping up his upcoming performance, the "Baby" hitmaker wrote on his Twitter, "great day of press...great seeing the fans...Everyone come to NYC tomorrow for the @TodayShow Concert!! see you there!"
Bieber has been traveling around the world to promote his new album "Believe", which is due to come out in the U.S. on June 19. As of late, he threw a free concert for around 300,000 of his devotees in Mexico City.
