Parents who don’t want to listen to 23,000 young girls scream “Baby, baby, baby, oh” have an option. Tuesday night, during the Justin Bieber concert at the Tacoma Dome, the nearby LeMay Car museum is opening for a “parental daycare.”
They’re calling it an “oasis for moms and dads” whose children are across the street at the Bieber concert.
The four-level, 165,000-square-foot museum will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. the night of the concert, which begins at 7 p.m. in the Tacoma Dome. Cost of admission to Parental Daycare is $10 for adults.
“We’re giving parents and Bieber fans an opportunity to come early, beat the traffic, have dinner and drinks in our cafe and browse among Ferraris, muscle cars, Indy racers and other rare automobiles in the collection,” says Scot Keller with the American Car Museum, in a statement.
Bieber’s Tacoma show is sold out. No surprise, he’s popular here. He’s popular everywhere.
He won five 2012 Teen Choice Awards, has sold more than 15 million albums, and has more than 28.5 million Twitter followers.
Bieber was named the third most powerful celebrity in the world by Forbes magazine, with an estimated worth around $100 million.
Facebook fans, called “Beliebers,” have helped his “Baby,” “Never Say Never,” “Boyfriend” and “As Long As You Love Me” reach the top of the charts.
Bieber has had some trouble on this tour. He threw up on stage while performing in Glendale, Arizona, on the first stop of his Believe tour, earlier this month.
He ran off the stage while dancers and a DJ continued to perform, before re-emerging and apologizing to the audience.
I’m sure the girls would have loved to take care of poor Justin.
Joining Bieber for the Tacoma concert, Carly Rae Jepsen, the “Call Me Maybe” girl, opens the show.
