Justin Bieber asked his fans to keep quiet before singing a song at Thursday night’s concert in Manchester.

“Try and stay as quiet as possible,” he said. “You can scream as much as you want afterwards but while I’m singing try and stay quiet.”

It was the first of three dates in the city for the Canadian pop star.

Later, the 22-year-old cut a chat with the crowd short while trying to explain why his trek across the globe was called the Purpose World Tour.

“I just thought I could have a moment to say something. I can cut it if you want,” he said.
