Hi! I am the mom of a die-hard Justin Bieber fan! Right now she is at the fair and just finished waiting in line for 2 and one half hours just to get a wrist band to get in! She already has tickets(which we had to buy for more because they were sold out!). After waiting for that long she is sad to be one of the later ones let in. Friends of her started waiting at 5a.m!!

Heather is 12 and her sister Kelly is 18. They had a great idea for the day. Kelly in her Senior Year of high school interned at Clear Channel. She still helps out at concerts when needed. She just finished helping out at the Gretchen Wilson concert at the fair and offered to help the Bieber concert with her sister!(They both helped out at the Wilson concert!) They were told , yes that would be great, they could use the help! Well, I guess because security is tight they may not be able to help because of the wristband situation. Of course, they have their radio station shirts on as they were told and are ready to go...but, it may not work now. Heather's frends are all getting in sooner because they got their early. Heather did not because Kelly and Heather were supposed to help set up at 8am and would be able to get VIP passes to help and work the station booth etc.

Now, Heather is a little devastated but I told her to just be thrilled to be able to hear him and love the experience. She has her CD ready in case "she can get his autograph..." Biebermania anyone!!!!
