A furious Justin Bieber fan said her best friend’s dream turned into a nightmare after the global superstar stormed off stage in Manchester yesterday.
Jasmin Connor, 20, from Ellesmere Port waited almost a year to watch the Canadian heart-throb perform live with best friend, Kirsty Watson, 23, who had been given two tickets by her parents for Christmas last year.
But the two girls looked on in total disbelief and said it was the worst experience of their lives after Bieber threw his microphone and stormed off stage after he was booed for telling the crowd to stop screaming.
He told fans he was pleased to see everybody having a good time at his Purpose World Tour and ‘appreciated the support’ but said ‘screaming during the breaks has got to stop’.
Jasmine said she was in ‘so much shock’ following the incident.
“We were really excited to see him - it was the first concert I had ever been to and we had waited almost a whole year for this,” she told The Chronicle .
“We arrived as soon as the doors opened at 6.30 and when he made his first appearance at about 8.30, he didn’t even welcome anybody to the concert - there was no interaction at all.
“I was a little bit disappointed, but I thought it could only get better from there but it never did.
“After he came on, he sang about three songs and went off stage for another 10 minutes.
“After another two songs we had the interval and when he came back, that’s when he began talking and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
“He said he was glad everybody was having a great time but said the screams have got to stop during the break.
“I was in so much shock - he was being an absolute idiot.
“A few people began booing him so he threw his microphone across the stage and walked off.
“It’s so many people’s dream to see him live and he was behaving like a total idiot.
“He has got to understand thousands of girls see him as their idol and it’s a massive deal to them that they have finally been able to see him live.
“In my eyes it would be like going to a football game and the crowd not being able to cheer.”
Jasmin said a young girl standing in front of her began crying after Bieber stormed off, and started blaming the crowd for his behaviour.
Jasmine said she was ready to walk out and ‘couldn’t wait to go home’.
“We were really disheartened by it - when we got back in the car, Kirsty took his CD and said she will be putting it straight in the bin,” Jasmin added.
“It was her dream to see him live but it turned out to be a nightmare - it was the worst experience of our lives.”
Jasmin said everybody who attended the concert last night should be entitled to their money back.
“I used to think a lot of people slated him too easily, but he painted a picture for himself yesterday,” she added.
“He didn’t even apologise for his behaviour - he was very rude and he had no manners at all.
“I feel sorry for everybody who has bought tickets to see him - one girl I was chatting to told me she spent £400 on her ticket.
“I think everybody who went to that concert last night should get their money back - he really is what everybody has painted him out to be.”
Bieber fever gripped the region in recent days after it was rumoured the star was staying in Chester during his run of shows in the North West.
A trail of clues led The Chronicle to a £4.75m futuristic house on Helsby Hill, near Helsby , complete with helipad, indoor pool and football pitch, where it would seem the Canadian pop idol has been hanging around during his three-date gig at Manchester Arena.
