Justin Bieber has apologised to his fans for turning up late for his concert at The O2 last night, blaming “technical issues” for the delay.

The teenage superstar has come under fire from parents after disappointing the hundreds of children who travelled to the Greenwich arena to watch the show.

Taking to Twitter more than 12 hours after the event, the Canadian promised there would be repeat at The O2 this evening and admitted he had no excuses.

But he also blamed the media for “exaggerating” how long it took for him to turn up.

He wrote: “Last night i was scheduled after 3 opening acts to go on stage at 935 not 830 but because of some technical issues i got on at 10:10.

“So i was 40 min late to stage. there is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset. However it was great show and Im proud of that

“And tonight we will run on time and look forward to putting on an amazing show for everyone in attendance.” (sic)

He added: “My relationship with the media is not always easy but im trying. Im all about the music and the performance and i respect my fans.

“I never have any intent to upset or let anyone down. and Im not okay with things being exaggerated. once again sorry for anyone upset.

“Now we have a show to do today and Im gonna focus on the positive and put on a great show tonight here in London. NIGHT 2 at the 02 is gonna be even better. get ready. thanks”.
