First in the queue, for tonight’s sold out Justin Bieber concert, was the Seager family - Bronte, aged 13, Venice, nine, mum, Jo, 43, and family friend Rebecca McDonnell, 14.
Bronte said: “It’s going to be loud inside tonight. When he comes on stage we’ll be screaming our heads off.”
They were practising their high pitch screams outside the Arena as they hoped to spot the 17-year-old Never Say Never and Baby hitmaker turning up for his sound check this afternoon.
“We got here early because we’re expecting it to get very busy. My girls think he’s the best thing ever - they’ve got posters all over their rooms. They are crazy about him,” said mum Jo, who had travelled from Stamford Lincolnshire.
Also at the front of the queue were pals Jessica Rose, 15, and Hannah Robinson, 15, from Kiveton Park.
Hannah said: “We’re so excited - it’s Justin Bieber.”
