Bieber fever hit Dundalk last Wednesday and Thursday when tickets for Justin Biebers concert in the O2 went on sale on Thursday morning

The three girls were Jade Woods, Keadie Gartland and Saoirse McGee who spoke to the Dundalk Democrat and told us that they were prepared to stay there all day and all night to ensure they got tickets for the concert that will take place in February 2013.

The dedicated fans came prepared and had blankets and pillows for their overnight stay, during the day they were joined by numerous other local Bieber fans who were just as eager to secure tickets for the teen sensation’s show in the O2.

The Bieber fans withstood the adverse weather conditions all day Wednesday which was a day of strong winds and torrential rain, weather forecasts had predicted a storm to rival Hurricane Charlie but even that was not enough to deter these determined Bieblers.

Justin Bieber became a worldwide phenomenon in 2008 when the young teens YouTube videos captured the eye of a talent scout. He was then introduced to Usher and shortly afterward was offered an Island

Records recording contract by record executive L.A. Reid.

Bieber performed in the O2 in March last year and fans crowded the streets trying to catch a glimpse of him shopping on Grafton Street, which had to be closed off because of the impending chaos.

Next years concerts looks set to be the same with tickets for his first concert selling out in under 30 minutes after which a second date was added and sold out just as quickly.

Thankfully all the Dundalk fans that queued for tickets received one and nobody was left disappointed.
