SALT LAKE CITY - Best-selling pop artist Justin Bieber is in Utah for his "Believe" tour on Saturday, and the streets of Salt Lake City are filled with Justin fans.

The 18-year-old Canadian-born singer was discovered on YouTube in 2008 and has risen to international fame with hits like "Baby," "Never Say Never" and "Boyfriend," racking up more than 32 million Twitter followers and more than 3 billion plays on YouTube.

Justin's opening act is fellow Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen, who rose to fame thanks to her single, "Call Me Maybe."

Restaurants and stores near EnergySolutions Arena in downtown Salt Lake City were packed with "Beliebers" before the concert on Saturday night.

The concert is sold out, but tickets can still be purchased online; they're selling for upwards of $300.
