Justin Bieber Pressing Ahead With Japan Tour Plans

May 8, 2011 (10:08 pm) GMT
Justin Bieber has pledged his support to disaster-hit Japan by pressing ahead with tour stops in Osaka and Tokyo later this month, despite fears of increased radiation levels.

Japan was left devastated in March when it was struck by an earthquake and tsunami. The double disaster caused severe damage to a nuclear reactor in Fukushima and authorities have been struggling to contain radiation levels ever since.

's shows in the country were thrown into jeopardy last week when reports on TMZ.com claimed members of his crew were refusing to travel to Japan over safety concerns.

But the teen pop sensation is refusing to disappoint fans in the Far East and has promised to perform in Japan as scheduled May 17 and 18.

In a post on Twitter.com on Sunday, he writes, "5 shows left of this leg of the #myworldtour! Manila, Hong Kong, Taipei, Osaka and Tokyo! Like I said...we are going to JAPAN! #supportjapan."
