Justin Bieber’s tour promoter paid UO $5,000 a day to rent the Matthew Knight Arena

Justin Bieber rented out the Matthew Knight Arena all of last week to rehearse for upcoming tour dates in Seattle and Portland. According to a statement released to the Register-Guard by the University of Oregon, Bieber’s tour promoter — AEG Live Productions — paid $5,000 per day, plus whatever reimbursement fees were included for use of MKA staff and equipment.

Posts on social media indicate that Bieber stayed at the Inn at the Fifth while he stayed in Eugene to practice. Rumors circulated about sightings all over town, but none have been confirmed.
