FOXBOROUGH - This year's slate of live music performances throughout the state of Massachusetts is shaping up to be one of the best ever. While this particular concert which has been added to the lineup of Gillette Stadium performances in 2020 is not my cup of tea, there is no denying that a massive crowd is going to be drawn to see him.

That's right, if you know anything about artists who have egregiously large fan followings, then you might just be able to guess that the person I'm writing about is Justin Bieber. One of the biggest pop stars in the world, Bieber is getting ready to release his new album, Changes, on Valentine's Day. Just two weeks away! To celebrate the release of his fifth studio album, the 25-year-old is embarking on a tour that will see him perform in 45 different cities, Foxborough included. Bieber will perform at Gillette Stadium on his Massachusetts stop on September 17 later this year, per NBC.

For those of you keeping track at home, September 17 is a Thursday, so don't expect the New England Patriots to have a home game on Thursday Night Football that day. The Biebs will be in town.

Joining him on the concert circuit will be Kehlani and Jaden Smith. So if anyone of those three names interests you, then you will definitely want to keep an eye out for tickets, which are slated to go on sale on February 14, the same day his album will drop. However, there are various ways to get earlier tickets. Justin Bieber's online store has tickets available on February 3 (Monday!) and if you have American Express, there is currently a pre-sale option that lasts until Wednesday, February 13. This is the only New England stop for Bieber and a portion of the concert proceeds goes to mental health research if that makes you any more inclined to venture out early.

Personally, Bieber's music is not my thing. I'm anticipating Taylor Swift's Gillette Stadium appearance this year much more but there are many local people sure to be ecstatic about this and I am quite happy for them!
