UPDATE: Cavs Sweep Pistons, and Justin Bieber's Show is Back On


  • Joe Kleon

The show will go on!

Justin Bieber and the Cleveland Cavaliers won't have to figure out how to share the Q after all.

Now that the Cavs have swept the Detroit Pistons in the first round of the playoffs, the date set aside for Game 5 is now free and clear. It was unclear whether's Bieber's "Purpose World Tour" would change venues, concert time, or both if the Pistons had been able to squeeze out an extra game in the series.

If you're still interested in going there are still some tickets floating around...starting at $400 a pop.

Uh oh.

The Cavs' newly released playoff schedule means Justin Bieber fans in Northeast Ohio might have to wait longer than they expected to see Bieber in concert: On Tuesday, April 26th, he's listed to perform at The Q... the same day the Wine and Gold would play a possible Game 5 against the Detroit Pistons in the first round of the playoffs.

Right now the team and the Biebs are working on a way around the problem. If someone needs to go, it looks like it will be Justin who will need to schedule a new performance date. But Game 5 might not even be necessary if the Cavs take care of business with a sweep. Also, while the concert is slated to kick off at 7:30 that evening, tip time for the Cavs is still TBD.
