Justin Bieber - Was Justin Bieber Fined For Late Running O2 Arena Show?

Justin Bieber was not fined for showing up late to his London show.

The 'Boyfriend' hitmaker angered fans when he arrived two hours behind schedule for his gig at the O2 Arena on Monday night (04.03.13), causing the concert to end at 11.30pm on a school night.

However, despite reports the American heartthrob was fined £300,000 by Greenwich Council after running over the curfew of 11pm, a statement has been released from the office to confirm they have not taken action over Justin's late show.

They state: ''Contrary to the report, The Royal Borough of Greenwich has not taken any action against the owners of the O2 Arena in relation to Justin Bieber's recent performance, as no breach of our licensing conditions took place.

''It is simply a contractual issue between AEG and the artist involved, as there is no requirement for performances to finish by 11pm.

''The O2 is the world's most popular entertainment venue and sells over two million tickets each and every year as it plays host to many of the world's biggest names.

''We take any complaints made in relation to the venue very seriously, but it is an urban myth to suggest that we have ever levied a fine in relation to a performance there.''

The 19-year-old pop star was allegedly angry about the timing of the show, arguing, ''It's my gig, I'll go out when I want'' to his management and family.

But Justin explained the situation to fans on his Twitter account yesterday (05.03.13), blaming ''technical issues'' for making 20,000 fans wait for his appearance.

He wrote: ''Since i have been here it hasnt been easy with the press at times but I have loved it. so let me say this ... 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. (sic)''
