LOS ANGELES — The Justin Bieber celebrity train isn’t slowing down. The pop singer’s new album comes out June 15 and one week later, he’s set to star in his first prime-time network TV special, “Justin Bieber: All Around the World,” on NBC.
The format of the special is a mix of behind-the-scenes documentary footage and live performances from Bieber’s seven-country, 12-day promotional tour for the new album, titled “Believe.”
If that sounds familiar, it’s virtually the same format as Bieber’s big-screen film from last year, “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,” which followed the Bieb’s tour to promote his previous album.
The new NBC special will feature one technological innovation known as the “Justin-Cam,” which will give viewers a look at life through the eyes of Bieber.
