Justin Bieber is headed to Atlanta for two concerts soon, but don’t count on any backstage time. The pop star says he is done meeting and greeting with fans. “I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression,” he posted with the photo below.
Not that he doesn’t love his fans, but Biebs says encountering them individually is just too emotionally taxing:
“I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy,” Bieber posted on Instagram. “The pressure of meeting people’s expectations of what I’m supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders. Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised.”
Bieber will play Philips Arena April 12 and 13, with the second show added due to advance ticket demand. From the Ticketmaster site it looks like only a few sections are available for just the April 12 show, and they are not cheap. This screen grab shows availability as of 12:30 p.m. April 1, but who knows how long they’ll be available at any price:
So while Biebs won’t be spending any individual time with fans, he’d still love to see you at his concerts: “I want to stay in the healthy mindset I’m in to give you the best show you have ever seen,” he wrote.
