About 50,000 people will be attending the Justin Bieber concert in Tel Aviv this evening (Wednesday). When the gates opened at 4:30 PM, thousands of fans flooded the area, racing toward the stage. This is Bieber’s second time in Israel. His previous performance was six years ago.

The young fans did not hesitate to purchase the expensive tickets in order to get to see their beloved singer in person. Reut Solimani paid no less than 4,000 NIS in order to be in the first row of the audience. “This has been my dream for a long time and it’s about time it comes true,” she said.

Aside from the fans, Magen David Adom teams will be in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park tonight. Although the concert has not started yet, 15 people suffering from dehydration and fainting spells have already received medical treatment.
