Things have changed since this show was announced in January 2020.

The Biebs was originally supposed to take the stage at Raymond James Stadium alongside Poplyfe’s Kehlani and Jaden Smith, but now, numerous postponements later, the first Tampa engagement from Justin Bieber since 2013 is finally happening this weekend, at the smaller—yet very sold-out— Amalie Arena.

Joining him now will not only be Jaden, but also singer-songwriter Eddie Benjamin, and rapper ¿TÉO?.

And for the sake of everyone’s sanity, try to keep the Smith-Rock jokes—and Jaden’s mama’s name—out your fucking mouth.
