Justin Bieber announces Columbia concert date

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - If you hear screams coming from homes, schools and workplaces in the Midlands today, it's likely girls young and old are celebrating the news that Justin Bieber is coming to Columbia next summer.

Yes, it's true. The 18-year-old has added a stop for his "Believe" Tour at Colonial Life Arena on Monday, August 5, 2013.

The marketing team at Colonial Life Arena announced the news via Twitter this morning. "Huge News! @justinbieber is coming to Colonial Life Arena on Aug 5! Tickets on sale Friday, Dec 14! More details to follow! #BieberSC," wrote @CLAmktg.

"We will have many, many screaming ladies for sure, maybe some screaming guys," said Abey Foster, a worker at the arena.

Foster says it tooks some convincing. Bieber's promoters always go for the big cities like Charlotte and Atlanta first, but they made the pitch and the thick of summer on Aug. 5.

"We were just joking with our receptionist. She goes, 'It's Bieber Fever today!' She's definitely gotten many calls since we announced it this morning in the area," said Foster.

The young Canadian crooner quickly rose to international stardom after being discovered in 2007 when he posted several homemade videos on YouTube.

For those who can't wait until August to see Bieber, he's playing a concert at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena in late January. Tickets are still available.

Tickets, which range from $39.50 to $95.00, go on sale for the Columbia show on December 14 at 10 a.m. online through www.LMCtix.com,the Lexington Medical Center Box Office at Colonial Life Arena, Play It Again Sports in Columbia, or by phone at 1-855-4-LMC-TIX.

Fans interested in purchasing a ticket in person must claim a numbered wristband from the Lexington Medical Center Box Office at Colonial Life Arena on Friday, December 14 at 8:00 a.m. A random wristband number will be drawn at 8:30 a.m. The customer holding the number selected will be the first person inline to purchase tickets, followed by the individuals holding subsequent numbers. Anyone without a wristband will go to the back of the line.

Colonial Life Arena is not allowing any overnight camping. A wristband does not guarantee a ticket to the concert, merely a place in line. The wrist bands are only for the on sale at the Lexington Medical Center Box Office at Colonial Life Arena.

A number of VIP packages will also be offered on the upcoming tour.  In addition to great seats, VIP packages can include Meet & Greets and photo opportunities with Justin Bieber, autographed memorabilia, exclusive VIP merchandise and much more!  For more information on VIP packages, visit www.aeglive.com.

$1.00 from each ticket will be donated to Pencils of Promise, a charity which works to build schools and increase educational opportunities in the developing world. The charity's goal is to build 15 schools around the world for needy children. Details at www.pencilsofpromise.com
