GLENDALE, Ariz. -
Fans got an unexpected surprise Saturday night during Justin Bieber's concert stop in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale.
The pop star fell ill while performing at Jobing.com Arena, vomiting on stage while performing his song "Out of Town Girl".
Video from inside the arena showed Bieber gamely dancing and making his way around the stage before stopping suddenly, turning his back to the audience and vomiting, then running from the stage..
Beiber returned and told the crowd "I'm sorry, I'm going to slow things down," and then played the ballad "Fall" on an acoustic guitar. Later, while performing "Beauty and the Beat," he ran offstage again.
"It's hard for me, you know, not feeling great and throwing up in front of a bunch of people," Bieber said to the screaming audience, when he returned.
Bieber tweeted following the concert , saying, "Great show. Getting better for tomorrow's show !!!! Love u."
His next stop was Sunday night in Las Vegas. Bieber's tour will stop at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Jan. 7, 2013.
Art Garfunkel fails to show at 2 Swedish concerts
Swedish concert organizers say singer Art Garfunkel failed to show up at two scheduled events and instead flew home to the United States.
Organizer Niels Estrup told the Sydsvenskan paper on Sunday that the iconic 1960s pop singer failed to appear at Night of the Proms, a fusion of classical and pop music, in Goteborg on Friday and Malmo on Saturday.
Organizers said they didn't find Garfunkel at the hotel but later learned he had left the country along with his staff.
It is unclear why 70-year-old Garfunkel skipped the concert, though organizer Julius Malmstrom told the Sydsvenskan that he had seen the singer in Goteborg on Thursday and said Garfunkel looked healthy but did not seem confident about his voice.
