Justin Bieber and Winnipeg have a long history together.
His dad lived in Winnipeg, so Bieber spent time in the city when he was growing up. And his tendency to get out and take in the sights and sounds of his former hometown has "Beliebers" combing the streets hoping to spot the teen heartthrob.
So SCENE decided to take a look back at the Top Five Bieber hotspots...in case you're, you know, just curious.
#5 Jets Game
Bieber and Selena Gomez watched the Winnipeg Jets
defeat the Carolina Hurricanes...back when there was hockey to watch. Sadly, given the lack of Jets games, we won't be seeing Bieber cheering on the team in his own customized jersey on this particular visit...

#4 Quick Eats
On earlier visits, Bieber has been known to drop into the odd Tim Horton's or Booster Juice outlet. Which might explain Twitter reports that fans were hovering around the Timmie's under the Fairmont on Wednesday.
#3 The Forks
Even Justin Bieber isn't immune to the power of this tourist hotspot
. Before he was an international superstar, Bieber used to busk there for spare change. And in October of 2011, he headed back to his old haunt to take a look around. Probably didn't do much busking though.
#2 Really Old Boats
Because everyone likes antiques, right? Bieber and Selena Gomez got up close and personal with the Nonsuch at the Manitoba Museum
for a special, candlelit dinner on a previous trip to the 'Peg.
#1 Giving Back
He may be a quazillionaire at the age of 18, but Bieber does do a fair bit of philanthropic work too. On his current Believe
tour, he's donating one dollar from every ticket sold to Pencils of Promise
, a charity that builds schools in developing countries. On a recent tour stop in Edmonton, he also took some time to meet with 18-year-old Crystal Montgomery who is fighting bone cancer.
