TORONTO, June 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Global has the exclusive ticket to Justin Bieber! As one of the world's
hottest musical performers, Bieber is making his first-ever network
special, Justin Bieber: All Around the World. Part 1 premieres Wednesday, June 20 - 8pm ET/PT followed by Part 2 on Thursday, June 21 - 8 pm ET/PT, both in simulcast with NBC.
This unique special combines documentary footage and on-stage
performances by the award-winning and record-breaking artist as he
tours the globe for his latest album "Believe," which includes the #1 single, "Boyfriend."
The one-hour special goes behind-the-scenes, and for the first time
shows what life is like through the eyes of Justin Bieber with the
"Justin-cam." It's a grueling itinerary of seven countries in 12 days,
culminating in a special New York City performance.
With worldwide sales in excess of 15 million units, Bieber has dominated
pop culture and social media for more than three years. He has over 43
million Facebook fans, more than 22 million Twitter followers, and over
2.9 billion YouTube views. He is far and away the most popular YouTube
artist of all time, and received the 2012 Billboard Music Award for
Social Artist of the Year.
"Believe" follows Bieber's #1 Christmas album, "Under the Mistletoe," which was his third #1 Soundscan debut in just 18 months, making him
the first solo artist in Billboard history to chart three #1 albums
before his 18th birthday. Prior to "Under the Mistletoe," "My World 2.0" entered Soundscan at #1 in 2010 (containing "Baby," ranked the #1 most
viewed YouTube video, currently over 738 million views); and "Never Say Never: The Remixes" entered at #1 in 2011, the soundtrack to the highest domestic-grossing
concert film in U.S. history. "Justin Bieber: All Around the World" is produced by Ian Stewart with Done and Dusted Productions.
