Justin Bieber had his show yesterday in Dubai halted after a male fan attacked him on stage.
The Daily Mail reports Bieber was performing the title track of his "Believe" album seated at piano when the fan approached him from behind. The fan jumped on a small riser and tried to hug the singer. Fortunately, a roadie/security guard intervened, grabbing the fan as the seated Bieber quickly escaped the fan's grasp and moved to another side of the stage. The male was pushed down and quickly dragged away from the stage.
Bieber, who appeared unhurt in the fracas, quickly got away from the fan, but the ruckus caused the piano to be knocked over on its side. The musician continued singing and was very the-show-must-go-on about it afterwards.
One of Bieber's longtime touring musicians Dan Kanter fleshed out a bit more of the story regarding what happened via Twitter.
"It wasn't a prank," Kanter said in a series of tweets. "Someone ran on stage during Believe and the piano got knocked off its platform. Everyone is fine. No need to worry! and for those of you worried about the piano... That piano was rented locally. It wasn't the piano in DTE from My World Tour or from the Believe Tour. We didn't fly with it."
This is the second show-stopping incident on Bieber's middle eastern tour as his Istanbul, Turkey show last week was also halted momentarily, either due to things being tossed on stage or to respect a Muslim prayer call.
The world tour continues Wednesday in Cape Town, South Africa.
