Justin Bieber’s three-concert run in Manchester got off to a rocky start this week when he stormed offstage mid-performance. But it appears JB is back in good spirits and making the most of his time in Europe by hanging out with the (lucky as hell) local folk.
A noted fan of crashing random sports practices, Bieber did the most Canadian thing ever by dropping in on the Manchester Storm ice hockey team yesterday (October 25). The team gifted Biebs an honorary jersey (hopefully his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs won’t be offended), and they even got to play a little pick-up with the pop star, who turned out to be pretty damn skilled.
After thoroughly kicking ass on the ice, Bieber joined the team at Tiger Tiger nightclub for the weekly student party Taboo. There, he mingled with fans and even previewed a new song (!) allegedly called “Close to You.” Check it out below, and feel all the FOMO:
The European leg of JB’s Purpose World Tour continues through the end of November — here’s hoping his time across the pond continues to be more fun and less scream-y.
