Bieber fever is coming to Houston. The pop star with seemingly a zillion young pre-teen and teenage fans will appear in concert at the Toyota Center on Oct. 30 as part of the first leg of his 45-city "Believe" tour, officials announced early Wednesday morning.
The tour will kick off Sept. 29 in Glendale, Ariz., and end on Jan. 26, 2013 in Miami. It follows on the heels of the release of Bieber's new CD, also titled Believe, on June 19.
Carly Rae Jepsen will open for Bieber.
"I think the tour's going to be really special. We got a lot of surprises."
At the recent Billboard Music Awards, Bieber told MTV News that there will be "a lot of fun stuff" in the new show.
"I've been really hard at work in the studio, in the dance studio, just kind of figuring out what I want to do as far as choreography and whatnot," he said. "I think the tour's going to be really special. We got a lot of surprises."

Fan will receive a pre-sale access code which allows the purchase of up to four tickets for up to four shows on the tour plus some exclusive Bieber merchandise.
