Justin Bieber adds new Jakarta concert after first date sells out in an hour

Indonesian fans now have another shot at catching the pop star live this November

Justin Bieber has announced a second show in Jakarta, Indonesia this November after the first reportedly sold out within an hour.

The show is set to take place on November 2, one day before its previously announced and now sold-out November 3 show at Stadion Madya, Gelora Bung Karno. The concert venue has a maximum capacity of 20,000.

Ticket sale dates have yet to be announced, although ticket prices are expected to match that of the November 3 date. A maximum of eight regular tickets can be purchased at once, while the limit for VIP tickets is four.

The additional show comes due to an “overwhelming demand” for tickets, with the November 3 show selling out within an hour of going on sale on March 29, per a Coconuts report.

Fans who were unable to snap up tickets took to social media to air their grievances, some blaming ticketing site Blibli for not being able to handle the traffic and crashing, leading to hour-long queues.

The November 2 show marks the third Southeast Asian show that Bieber is set to perform this year, following an October 22 show in Kuala Lumpur and the sold-out November 3 show in Jakarta.

Promoters have teased more Asian dates to be announced.
