Justin Bieber Stops Concert For Muslim Prayer

Justin Bieber Performs At The Telenor Arena In Oslo

Justin Bieber stopped his concert in Istanbul, Turkey on Thursday night during the Muslim call to prayer.

According to E! Online, Bieber paused his show at Istanbul’s sold-out Technical University sports arena to allow for audience members to pray (a practice Muslims observe five times daily). Bieber’s gesture was met with many positive notices on Twitter.

The goodwill Bieber engendered by pausing the show helped offset some of the trouble he and his entourage reportedly got into earlier on Thursday at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport. According to ABC News, Bieber and his crew did not present any of their travel documents to security officials as they left the airport. As a result, Bieber was checked by security outside of Sabiha Gökçen Airport and allowed to go on his way.

Bieber’s current tour has not been without some controversy. His planned show in Oman was reportedly canceled because the Muslim nation deemed his stage act too sexy and debauched.
