Justin Bieber’s fans are known for their enthusiasm and how they bring their all for the Biebs. When Bieber played Buffalo on Saturday night off the heels of an absolute tragedy, he asked for a moment of silence. This request hushed the crowd in a powerful display.
Bieber took the stage at the KeyBank Center and let his fans cheer for him before addressing the situation at hand. He gave a powerful speech about how they will honor those who lost their lives with a moment of silence. This concert took place just hours after the heinous attack.
The once-cheering crowd was hushed into absolute silence. There was also a professional camera crew present filming the entire event for all to see. Bieber then uploaded it on his Instagram page to let everyone in on this memorial.
The Justice Tour is still on-going, and Buffalo just happened to have a date on Bieber’s schedule this weekened. That concert was not a spur-of-the-moment booking, but instead of cancelling Bieber carried on and made sure he included a fitting tribute.
At least 10 people were gunned down after an 18-year-old made the trip into the city for a clearly race-driven attack. He has since pleaded not-guilty, but even more aspects of his life before the tragedy paint a picture of extremism. Our thoughts are with everyone involved in this terrible situation.
