LONDON (AP) - A spokesman for London's O2 arena says Justin Bieber's show is scheduled to go ahead as planned after the teenage pop star fainted backstage at his concert.
Jeremy King says, "as far as we are concerned everything is on, on, on" for Friday's show.
He says the 19-year-old Canadian star was treated backstage after becoming short of breath, but recovered and finished his set.
"He was treated by our team of medics and after further examination they didn't find anything more serious or worrying."
A spokeswoman for Bieber said he was given oxygen and took a 20-minute reprieve. Bieber has tweeted that he is "gettin better."
