Bath Justin Bieber fan Kaci, 7, devastated after idol is two hours late for concert
A seven-year-old Bath girl has been left devastated after her idol Justin Bieber was almost two hours late for his concert.
Huge Justin Bieber fan Kaci James, from Foxhill, had been looking forward to going to her first concert for months.
But the star kept his fans waiting at London's 02 Arena last night and Kaci was only able to see two songs before she had to leave to catch the last train home.
Bieber had been due on stage at 8:30pm but did not appear until 10.20pm, leaving his young audience to listen to Michael Jackson songs on repeat after the warm up acts had completed their sets.

Many youngsters were in tears, with others so tired they had to be taken home before Bieber appeared on stage.
Kaci, a pupil at St Phillips School, was excited to be going to the concert with her mother Izzy Stevenson.
But she was left her in tears and tired at school the next day and has now declared she is no longer a Bieber fan and will be supporting One Direction instead.
The youngsters grandmother Jac Oakes, who runs Combe Down News, is disgusted with the star, and said his actions were selfish and unacceptable.
She said: “Kaci was so excited about going to the concert and had been looking forward to it for months.
“She has been left devastated by what happened and told me that she is no longer a Justin Bieber fan.
“It was her first concert and her dreams have been blown apart.
“There was no apology when he finally did arrive on stage and I think his whole attitude is disgusting.
“There are a lot of upset children and he needs to be held accountable.”
While young fans were kept waiting, parents arrived at the venue expecting to pick up their children.
Fans tweeting from inside the O2 said there were boos from some in the crowd almost an hour before he emerged.
No one connected to the show has commented, but the venue apologised for the late start via its Twitter feed saying: “Justin Bieber is now on stage and apologises for the lateness of his show.”
This morning it tweeted that it will be “exploring all available options to ensure this doesn't happen again”.
