Mumbai Mirror reports that Bieber will perform live in a concert held in DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai this May. The visit to India will be a part of his Purpose tour in Asia. The other cities where he is scheduled to perform as a part of this Asia tour are Tel Aviv in Israel and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to a report by Elle India.

While his visit to India will be just for a day for the concert, it is nonetheless a great development. Last year, the British band Coldplay performed at the Global Citizen Festival in Mumbai, much to the delight of music buffs.

A report by the Times of India last year suggested that Bieber and Miley Cyrus may perform in a gig in Nagpur in May 2015 but clearly, that did not work out.

Now, the Times of India confirms that Bieber will indeed be performing live at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on a yet to be decided date between 10 May and 20 May this year. Beliebers, rejoice!

It will be an exciting event to look forward to, not just for the Beliebers but also for Bieber himself. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon in 2012, Bieber had explicitly stated his love for Indian food. He should be looking forward to gorging on some spicy delicacies when he visits the country this May.
