Justin Bieber fans will take part in a 'Bieber Parade', hours before the teenager plays his opening show in Manchester later.

It'll kick off at the Printworks, near Victoria Station, at 12pm before heading towards the Arena.

Organiser Jeannette Warren told Capital the idea is to get fans from Manchester and those travelling to the city to all join up before the gig and have a bit of fun.

Bieber, who's 18, will perform at Manchester Arena tonight - the first of two dates in the city.

He'll be supported by Call Me Maybe singer Carly Rae Jepsen and Australian singer Cody Simpson.

The star, who has the highest number of followers on Twitter, has been keeping fans up to date with his movements.

He said he was "loving the UK'' and sent a series of tweets in the early hours of Wednesday morning when out with fellow singer, one saying: ""love to my guy @iamwill . good times my friend. to the future! haha. #london.''

An excited fan who'll be seeing Bieber on the second night of his tour wrote on Twitter: "Hasn't really kicked in that on Friday we'll be watching Justin Bieber in Manchester ahhh."
