Justin Bieber's most recent album, Purpose, was released 21 months ago in November 2015, a period I'm very tempted to wistfully categorize as a simpler time. He's kept busy since then, hopping on plenty of No. 1 singles as a featured artist ("Despacito," "I'm the One," and "Cold Water") and a few that came close ("Let Me Love You" and "2U").
Despite all this, the man is still on his 164-show, continent-sprawling Purpose world tour, the one that kicked off back in March 2016 and flooded the world with all that metal-inspired merch. And somehow, he is not even done yet. Bieber announced on Monday (July 17) that he's got a run of stadium dates lined up over the next few months — and he's bringing your faves along to open for him.
Bieber has tapped Migos, Vic Mensa, Kehlani, and Martin Garrix for his upcoming North American shows beginning July 29 and running through September 6. In other words, if you still haven't seen Biebs on the Purpose tour, he's giving you one final shot, and the A-list openers are there to ensure you come out for the show.
Maybe Bieber and Quavo can enlist Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne (and DJ Khaled, if he ever has a free minute) to get the "I'm the One" band back together onstage. We'll see. Via Billboard, check the dates and openers below.
