(Newser) – Australian authorities have canceled a concert by 16-year-old Canadian heartthrob Justin Bieber after screaming fans mobbed the performance site, causing injuries and several teens to faint and hyperventilate. Bieber was to sing 3 songs at a Sydney Harbor venue for a TV broadcast today. But the gig was nixed when police became concerned about safety after thousands of girls surged toward the stage and ignored authorities' demands to disperse, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
