The Show Must Go On:
Addresses Fan Attack
in Dubai (VIDEO)
Justin Bieber is a firm 'belieber' of the motto "the show must go on"— not even a fan attack can stop him!
Following a scary incident — in which a fan rushed the stage to try and touch Justin while he performed in Dubai on May 5— the teen heartthrob took to Twitter to address the situation.
Dubai. Nothing stops the show. 2 more to go. #BELIEVEtour— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) May 6, 2013
Biebs, 19, was in the middle of performing "Believe" on the piano, when a man made his way onstage and tried to grab the singer. During the situation, the piano was knocked over by the stranger in an attempt to avoid being caught. Luckily, security grabbed the crazed fan and Bieber escaped to side of the stage.

Several people close to the singer — including film director Jon Chu and his musical director Dan Kanter — confirmed that the incident was very real...and very frightening.
It wasn't a prank. Someone ran on stage during Believe and the piano got knocked off its platform. Everyone is fine. No need to worry!— Dan Kanter (@dankanter) May 5, 2013
Wow. @justinbieber was the ultimate professional again as he is almost tackled on stage by a fan and keeps performing. Nice work my friend!— Jon M. Chu (@jonmchu) May 5, 2013
After a brief break, Justin returned to the stage to sing "Boyfriend" and "Baby."
At the end of the day, the show must go on— and Justin is looking forward to his next concert:
