Stratford Perth Museum to launch Justin Bieber exhibit Family Day weekend

Stratford Perth Museum to launch Justin Bieber exhibit Family Day weekend

The Stratford Perth Museum in Ontario is unveiling what is calls Steps to Stardom, an exhibit that will revolve around pop superstar Justin Bieber and how he rose to fame.

The exhibit's name refers to the steps of Stratford's Avon Theatre, where Bieber got his start busking as a boy. Note the air quotes, because the use of "artifacts" for something that happened barely a decade ago is a bit of a stretch.

Further information comes via the local Stratford Beacon Herald, which reports that the show will feature a collection of personal items, awards and memorabilia that have been donated by Bieber and his family.

Amongst the collection of personal and professional memorabilia featured in "Steps to Stardoms" are items like Bieber's old hockey bag and Stratford Warriors junior hockey jersey, running shoes, T-shirts, letters, photographs, microphones and backstage credentials.

Apple Music executive Jimmy Iovine leaving company, reports say
Jimmy Iovine had a huge hand in helping the streaming service lift off two and a half years ago so this news is huge. Dre are the co-founder of Beats and both became part of the Apple Music team when Apple bought the company in 2014.

If you'd like to see the exhibit, you'll have a lot of opportunity, because there is now no closing date for Steps to Stardom.

Kastner said he had considered assembling a Bieber exhibit for a while.

Considering that Bieber's childhood stomping grounds have been a highlight for many tourists to the small city for years, the museum expects a considerable turnout.

"I think it's a job for museums to tell stories and this is a great story".

Both sides failed to take their chances in the first half of the game, with Alvaro Morata guilty of missing clear cut issues. Wenger was speaking after a pulsating and at times controversial 2-2 draw with Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.

"Steps to Stardom" - a reference to the young singer's busking shows on the steps outside the local Avon Theatre - opens at the Stratford Perth Museum on February 18.

And, according to Kastner, Bieber is on-board with the whole thing.

"We. had a very brief conversation with him here, and he was very appreciative - couldn't have been nicer", Kastner said, "and just expressed how much he appreciated the fact that the museum was doing an exhibit".
