Pop legend Justin Bieber has announced the dates he'll be performing in Scandinavia in 2016, as he attempts to woo back Nordic fans left devastated when he walked off a stage in Oslo earlier this year.


The 21-year-old Canadian heart throb announced on Twitter on Wednesday that he would be heading to the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm on September 29th next year, along with venues in Helsinki (September 26th), Copenhagen (October 2nd) and Oslo (September 23rd). 
The dates form part of the European leg of his Purpose World Tour which will see him performing in more than 30 world cities.
Tickets for the concerts in the Nordics are set to go on sale on December 17th at 10am, ten months ahead of the scheduled gigs.
Bieber will be attempting to win back the hearts of his Scandinavian fan base after causing a huge stir in October this year when he cancelled a performance in Oslo after singing just one song. He was apparently annoyed at a fan who spilled water on the stage.
“I’m done with this,” he told his audience after throwing his hoodie on the floor, video evidence of the incident showed. 
Many fans thought his swift exit was a joke and ended up in tears when they realized it wasn't.
The star later apologized on Instagram, saying he didn't always “handle things the right way”. He blamed a difficult week and lack of sleep, adding that he stopped the show because “the people in the front row would not listen”.
The singer also walked out of a Spanish interview during the same week, apparently frustrated at the language barrier. 
But his outbursts so far seem to have done little to damage his global fan base. 'Purpose', his fourth studio album, racked up 200 million Spotify steams in its first week when it was released last month.
