On Friday, September 4, the Biebs played a drum set at The Venue, a popular bar and music spot in Angola. The swaggy singer joined Bonafide, the cover band scheduled to play, on stage, taking a turn on the drums and posing for photos with the astonished band members.
"He came up and asked if he could play them," one band member, Heidi Herber, told WANE. She added, "He just looked like a normal kid in the bar, except for the hat and hoodie. We had no idea [he was going to be there], in fact, he was one of the first people in bar."
Bieber was just playing an arcade game when someone at the bar recognized him. Que the chaos!
"It was a social media frenzy. The phones started to come out," Heidi said. "Social media is extremely powerful."
The bar actually had to call local police for extra security. But, the whole incident was all-good. The band saw their biggest turnout yet and ended up thanking Bieber for bringing all the people into the bar.
