An ebullient Tony Mansour announced on April 1 that Justin Bieber will headline a special Live on the Boulevard Concert.
How did he land the teen heartthrob? “He’s Jamie’s cousin,” said the Town Center magnate, speaking of senior marketing coordinator Jamie McDaniels.
Bieber will be in El Dorado Hills during a break in the second leg of his “My World” tour, between shows in Iceland and Poland.
To accommodate the anticipated crowd of up to 100,000 screaming teenage girls, Mansour said he is considering floating a giant stage over the Town Center lake, supported by six massive steel arches that span the lake from different sides.
“We’re calling it the ‘insect’,” said Mansour, “It would allow us to stage much larger shows here for the residents of El Dorado Hills.”
Reached by Village Life after a recent concert in Rotterdam, Bieber said he’s excited about visiting El Dorado Hills. “I heard you have a great hot dog place there.”
He said he’s also looking forward to seeing his cousin Jamie, and getting even for “all those noogies she gave me when I was little.”
