Several members of Justin Bieber’s stage crew have flat out refused to go to Japan for the two concerts scheduled for later this month. They are scared of the cancer risk created by the nuclear disaster and also worried about the possibility there will be another earthquake.
The two Japan concerts on this stage of the “Baby” pop star’s tour are scheduled to be in Osaka on May 17 and in Tokyo on May 19.
Scooter Braun, Bieber’s manager, is said to be furious at the anxious crew members. Just yesterday he told them to “Man the f__ up and do the right thing by these kids.”
There have been a series of meetings over the last few days regarding the Japan concerts. In them, crew members argued it was not safe to visit the country just now and pointed out that both Avril Lavigne and Slash had cancelled their Japan concerts.
However, Scooter remained adamant that Justin did not want to disappoint the kids who bought tickets and that the Japanese government had given an “all clear” to say that it was safe in both cities. He noted that Maroon 5 is still going ahead with its upcoming Japanese concerts.
Right now, Justin Bieber’s management and his crew are at stalemate. But whose side are you on? Would you be willing to tour Japan right now?
