Justin Beiber Helps Christen Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn

Tween heartthrob Justin Beiber made an angelic entrance to the screams of adoring fans at the new Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn during the latest stop on his “Believe” tour Monday night.

The 18-year-old pop star donned a gold hooded vest with studs and matching gloves over all-white jeans and a tank top as he descended on stage while attached to giant metallic wings made of musical instruments.


“Brooklyn, are you ready to believe?” Beiber asked as he took the stage. “I go by the name of Justin Bieber. Let’s party.”

Beeb’s appearance in New York comes shortly after reports that he and girlfriend Selena Gomez have broken up—news that was surely music to the ears of Beleibers in attendance.

After Jaden Smith and Cody Simpson warmed the crowd up, Beiber didn’t disappoint. He sprinkled much of his catalog throughout the performance, generated “aws” with the scrapbook montage and ended the set with his biggest hits, “Baby” and “Boyfriend.”

Afterward, Beiber headed to Pennsylvania to perform Tuesday, then Michigan before touring his homeland of Canada. But New York fans who missed him this time around–or just can’t get enough–will have another chance to get their Beeb on when he plays Madison Square Garden on Nov. 28 and 29. He’ll play MSG again the following week, Dec. 7, along with Taylor Swift and One Direction for Z100′s Jingle Ball.

The Barclay’s Center, new home of the Brooklyn Nets, opened seven weeks ago with a week-long string of Jay-Z concerts followed by similarly big-name acts before the New York Islanders announced last month they would ditch Nassau Coliseum for the new digs in 2015.
