Norway hit by outbreak of Bieber fever

OSLO, — Five schools in western Norway have rescheduled their midterm exams to allow students to attend upcoming Justin Bieber concerts in the capital, the country’s Ministry of Education and Research said Wednesday.

The pop star will perform in Oslo on April 16 and 17, stoking fears that some students in remote schools will skip midterms scheduled to take place at the same time.

Bieber is extremely popular in the Nordic country, where his free concert in Oslo last year resulted in dozens of injuries as teenage girls fought to get better glimpses of the 19-year-old icon.
