Justin Bieber’s first-ever live concert in India for his “Purpose World Tour” took place at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on May 10 to a crowd of nearly 45,000 people.
Thousands of Beliebers eagerly anticipated the pop singer’s maiden performance in the country, with some fans reportedly shelling out nearly $1,165 for a single ticket. However, the elation was short-lived, as disappointed fans took to social media to express their discontent with Bieber’s singing — or lack thereof. Concertgoers accused the “Baby” singer of lip-syncing his songs.
One fan tweeted, “Is it too late to say sorry now?” while another wrote, “Bieber was so bad it was hilarious.”
Bieber was so bad it was hilarious. He had the stage presence of khichdi. Plus kaafi lip sync.
(Lucky that my tickets were free :D)

However, lip-syncing wasn’t the only thing that infuriated the Beliebers. Other fans criticized the “Love Yourself” singer for his wardrobe. One fan questioned why Bieber was “dressed so shabbily” and commented that he looked “like he is playing basketball in his driveway.”

Rolling Stone India wrote, “He performed the entire 90-minute set with the kind of enthusiasm you would expect from a robot, save for a couple of moments where he did seem to come alive and throw a magnanimous hello at the audience.”
Bieber’s next show is on May 14 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The tour concludes in September in Tokyo.
