Justin Bieber attacked by fan on stage in Dubai.

Bieber was at the piano when an unidentified person rushed on stage and tackled him. The piano was knocked over during a struggle between security and the man.

 The National, a Dubai-based broadcaster, reported that the 19-year old pop star finished the song without pause after the incident. After a three minute break after that song, the concert continued. 

Bieber previously canceled a May 5 performance in Oman while arranging a second performance in Dubai. 

The National reported that Bieber was on stage two hours later for his second Dubai concert on May 6, and the crowd was only half the size of the May 5 performance.
