While in Vienna, Austria, on his “Believe” European tour this Saturday, Justin Bieber managed to get banned from the city’s trendiest nightclubs, “Passage.” According to the club’s manager, Joachim Bankel, the 19-year-old pop sensation came to the club accompanied by his bodyguards who ended up smashing a handful of cameras that belonged to fans. Other reports claim that the entourage also destroyed cell phones and even groped young female fans who ending up going home in tears that night.
Bankel confirmed the banning by saying:
“Justin Bieber is no longer welcome here.”
This is not the first time Bieber has been turned away or banned from a nightclub. On his birthday earlier this year, Justin claimed he had the “worst birthday ever” after being sent away from London’s Cirque Du Soir due to underage friends coming along with him. Also, in February Justin was not allowed into a Manchester nightclub called Sankeys since the management was afraid that his presence would tarnish the establishment’s “edgy image.” Shortly after the snub, Sankeys’ Twitter read:
“Yes the rumours are true, we turned Justin Bieber away. He shuffles on stage and we can’t be having that in Sankeys now can we!”
This ban also comes in the same week that the pop star faces criminal battery charges filed by his neighbor after an incident on his property.
Justin’s incident at “Passage” came after his performance at the Vienna Stadthalle, which apparently involved a number of fans needing medical attention. According to the Austrian Times:
“The sell-out concert at the Vienna Stadthalle was also marked by a large number of hysterical fans needing medical treatment including one that was hospitalised overnight suffering from what is described as “hysteria”. In total medics on duty at the concert had to treat 178 fans who were suffering from lightheadedness and feeling faint as the start of the concert approached.”
