Tonight was the night! Beliebers were finally able to rejoice at Justin Bieber’s acoustic show at the Danforth Music Hall. An Evening with Justin Bieber was definitely one for the books. The event was to celebrate the release of Bieb’s album Purpose and all proceeds went to benefit the Stratford House of Blessings.
The entire show was totally authentic and Bieber seemed to freestyle his performances, which gave a genuine approach to this acoustic event. In his baggy sweater, Supreme toque, and black ripped jeans, Bieber’s casual laid back vibe gave the audience a unique and romantic experience. We felt like we were about to go make some popcorn and watch Netflix with the Biebs, while he serenaded us of course!
Bieber started out the show with “What Do You Mean” to get the crowd going and then he engaged with fans for a quick Q&A. His eyes were glossy when he began to sing “I’ll Show You” and told fans that he wrote the song at a very pivotal time in his life.
Justin sang beautiful acoustic versions of his fast pace songs while Dan Kanter killed it on the guitar. His heart-warming performance of “Purpose” had the crowd singing along to every word. He also wooed the crowd with some famous holiday melodies getting everyone into the spirit. It wouldn’t be a Bieber show without a performance of “Mistletoe” – Justin, I’ll meet you there!
Not to mention he brought out his little brother Jaxon a few times to say hello to the crowd! SO CUTE. As if the show couldn’t get any better, he sped things up with a little remix of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and had everyone dancing on their feet.

After a short break, Bieber seduced the audience with “All That Matters” and made every girl feel like he was singing the song about them! He brought back “Boyfriend” and the crowd went crazy!
Even though there was a lot of excitement in the room, Bieber kept things so real with his fans. “I’m going to keep messing up,” said Bieber. He explained to fans that he’s not perfect and he’s going to make mistakes, but he’s going to become better person by learning from them. “Be who you want to be,” said Bieber. “Let’s just crush this.” Continually throughout the show, Bieber was motivating the crowd and telling fans how to embrace individuality.“I want you to leave with something that’s going to inspire you,” said Bieber on what he hopes fans take away from his show.
At the beginning of the performance of “Be Alright”, Bieber said that it was a song he wrote for the girl he was with at the time. Hint, hint, Selena Gomez?
One of the many cool moments of the night was when he brought one lucky fan on stage and serenaded her with “One Less Lonely Girl”, and it was her birthday! Talk about an amazing sweet sixteen this fan had! The BestFan team had the chance to talk to the fan prior to the show, and she told us she had been waiting in line since 5pm the night before! It was totally worth it though, with all the hugs and love she got from Biebs on stage. Jealous is an understatement, but I’m glad she had an incredible birthday!
Bieb’s covered “So Sick” by Ne-Yo, and absolutely slayed a rendition of “Let it Be”, a Beatles classic, which he played on the piano.
During his performance of his famous hit “One Time” he grabbed a fan’s phone while she was FaceTiming her friend! Can you imagine FaceTiming with Justin Bieber during his performance?!
“So guys I have to apologize for this one,” Bieber said before busting out into his smash hit “Sorry“.
A crazy unexpected moment of excitement was when a fan threw her bra at the stage! Bieber held it up to this chest and laughed along with the audience and the rest of the world watching the livestream.
The fans chanted for Bieber to do an encore and he closed the show with “As Long As You Love Me”. It was such a special night for all of the Beliebers, and for Bieber himself. Being back home, performing an intimate show for the people who adore him most was nothing short of an amazing night.
