While out on a boat with friends and fellow tour member Alfredo Flores, Bieber injured his back wake-boarding.
Bieber took to twitter saying,
“Crazy 24 hours of travel...back is messed up....but we are smiling. We finally made it. AUSTRALIA we are here. Brisbane Leggo!”
After his show he posted,
“back is in ALOT of pain but incredible show tonight. BRISBANE was #BEAST - Australia is about to be a party the next 2 weeks”
Bieber is in Australia finishing the last five shows on his My World Tour.
After Justin saw a back specialist, the doctor insisted that the teen sensation cancel his Brisbane concert. Bieber did not agree and performed anyway. He is next due to perform Thursday, April 28 in Sydney.
A back specialist told us,
“The type of injury from wakeboarding needs rest to heal. If he performs he runs the risk of exacerbating the condition and making it worse. If it gets better he should be alright, but if it gets worse than he may have no choice but to cancel to prevent permanent damage.”
Fortunately, Bieber only has a couple of more shows before he is back in the United States for a little relief from his touring schedule.
After returning to Atlanta, Bieber plans to start work on his third album expected for release in late fall.
