With only weeks left until Justin Bieber kicks off the European leg of his ‘Purpose’ tour, it’s been revealed that Liverpool band MiC LOWRY are his support act.
Meet Delleile Ankrah, Akia Jones, Kaine Ofoeme, Ben Sharples and Michael Welch.
With half a million social media fans, accumulating plays on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra and being nominated for a BET award for ‘Best International Newcomer’, they most definitely look like ones to watch.
So who are they?
The five piece band from Liverpool all grew up within a mile of each other and started singing together in their early teens. They started performing at local gigs and even performed at Liverpool’s famous Cavern Club following in the footsteps of The Beatles.
What have they achieved so far?
They’ve won the MOBO Unsung Award and played the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury! Not only that but they’ve also secured several sell-out headline UK tours.
What can we expect to hear?
From upbeat songs to ballads with a blend of R&B and pop, it looks like Bieber fans are in for a treat!
Taking to twitter to share a video of them performing, it looks as though the boys are excited to have been asked to support one of the biggest names in pop.

After finishing their own sold out tour, they join Justin in Stockholm on 29th September followed by Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands before coming back to the UK playing to crowds in excess of 100,000!
Speaking about joining Justin on the tour, Delleile said: “We’re going to be visiting loads of countries that we’ve never visited before and we are dead excited”.
Justin’s European ‘Purpose’ tour starts on September 14th in Berlin, Germany.
