50,000 fans at Tel Aviv Bieber show; over 150 require medical care

Concert-goers treated at venue for minor ailments, including fainting, dehydration; four hospitalized, and one woman goes into labor

Over 100 fans at a Justin Bieber concert Wednesday night in Tel Aviv received medical treatment at the packed-out show, which was attended by some 50,000 Israelis.

Four people were hospitalized at the city’s Ichilov Hospital, and over 150 others were treated for light injuries by Magen David Adom paramedics at the Ganei Yehoshua Park, reports in Hebrew-language media said.

Concert-goers were treated for minor ailments, including dehydration, exhaustion, and fainting.

A pregnant woman was taken to Me’ayanei Hayeshua Medical Center after her water broke during the concert.


Some 50,000 fans, mostly teenage girls and young women, packed the venue in Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Park for Bieber’s second concert in Israel.

The one-time teen heartthrob performed a single show in Israel as part of his worldwide tour for his album “Purpose.”
