Justin Bieber 2010 Concert Cancelled Due To Safety Concerns

Australian police Monday shut down a concert by Justin Bieber over crowd safety fears after young fans were injured in surges hours before the free event was due to start.

Sixteen-year-old Bieber had been slated to sing three songs from the Sydney Harbour foreshore venue early Monday but the event was cancelled after thousands of fans, many of whom had been camping out overnight, began pushing.

“Police at the event were concerned for the 4,000 excited people already in attendance with many more anticipated to arrive prior to the start of the performance,” New South Wales police said in a statement.
