Justin Bieber — who took to Twitter to announce he’ll release his new album Nov. 13 — is keeping mum about a massive worldwide tour that will follow, a source tells Confidenti@l exclusively.
“The whole thing will hopefully end in several (U.S.) stadium dates with special guest Ariana Grande, ” said our insider. “This is in the very early stages but serious conversations are taking place.”
We hear nothing has been finalized yet, but both camps have told their people that they want to make it happen.
“They would both perform their solo hits then team up together for several duets,” says the source.
In April, Bieber and Grande performed during her “Honeymoon Tour” at the Forum in L.A. The twosome sang “Love Me Harder” and “As Long As You Love Me.” They also made a surprise appearance together at her show in Miami.
“There is a ton of crossover in their fan base,” another music source says. “If it does happen, it will be the top tour of 2016, pulling in hundreds of millions for the two singers.”
There has been no official word yet on details from either artist’s camp, but we’re told discussions have been moving forward fast.
“It’s Justin’s tour, so he would open the show. Then they can decide what they’ll perform together and what they’ll do solo. They’d likely unite at the end of the show for a hit.”
Meanwhile, Bieber’s latest pot stunt didn’t seem to faze his fans — the singer smoked weed and drank Hennessy on stage during a recent gig in New Zealand, reports TMZ. He was performing at a show in Auckland with hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd when he lit a joint and poured booze on the stage.
A source told the site that Bieber “did it on a dare.” He’s been in Australia and New Zealand to promote the album, reportedly titled “Purpose.” Its release date of Nov. 13 coincides with when One Direction will drop “Made in the A.M.”
