Justin Bieber closes first weekend of BST Hyde Park 2017

Justin Bieber closed the opening weekend of British Summer Time last night, hot on the heels of acclaimed headline performances by Green Day and Phil Collins.

Bieber played the 65,000-capacity AEG Presents-promoted concert series with support from Martin Garrix, Tove Lo, Anne-Marie and Naughty Boy.

He followed Saturday night headliners Green Day, who played a career-spanning two-and-a-half hour set, and Phil Collins, who opened this year' BST Hyde Park on Friday. Both concerts sold out.

BST Hyde Park resumes on Thursday with a Kings Of Leon/Pixies double bill, with The Killers and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers to headline Saturday and Sunday respectively. There are also a series of free events held at the venue throughout the week.

Festival director Jim King said: “To have sold 350,000 tickets and have probably the best part of half a million people coming across the 10 days, including midweek, that's phenomenally successful for us and we couldn't have asked for any more.”
