Alan Walker to join Justin Bieber on India tour

Mumbai, April 8 (IANS) Norwegian music producer and internet sensation Alan Walker will stage the opening act for popular singer Justin Bieber's debut performance in India later this year. He is looking forward to his return to India.

"I'm really looking forward to returning to India. My last performance there was amazing, and I can't wait for my next visit. It's also a great opportunity and honour to perform alongside Justin Bieber. Who knows, maybe my Indian fans will get a chance to hear some of my new music," Walker, who performed first in India last year, said in a statement.

Bieber is bringing his Purpose Tour to India on May 10, and Walker will accompany him.
