Cavs playoff game could bump Justin Bieber’s Cleveland concert
The Cleveland Cavaliers may unfortunately be forced to do something that is wisely best-avoided: Upset a rabid pack of Beliebers.
A scheduling snafu may result in Justin Bieber’s Cleveland stop on his “Purpose World Tour” — scheduled for April 26 at Quicken Loans Arena — having to be moved to another date, as Game 5 of the Cavaliers’ first-round series against the Detroit Pistons is also scheduled for that night.
All the Cavaliers would have to do is sweep the series in four games, thereby opening up The Q for the Bieber show. But that may prove trickier than it seems as the Pistons did defeat the Cavs twice during the regular season.
The Cavaliers are working with the Bieber tour organizers on a contingency basis to find an alternate date when the pop star could return to Cleveland should a Game 5 be necessary.
Bieber of course is a big-time sports fan who attended LeBron James’ first game back in Cleveland upon his return to the Cavaliers in 2014. But his allegiances to a particular team seem to change with the passing seasons, so it’s unknown if he’s currently a Cavaliers fan or not.
One thing is certain, though: Should Bieber’s concert need to be rescheduled, there will be thousands of very vocal and incredibly overemotional Beliebers who won’t consider themselves Cavaliers fans any longer, if they ever were one in the first place.
