America's favorite tow-headed prepubescent pop moppet, Justin Bieber, announced the second leg of dates for his My World summer/fall tour, including a stop at Toyota Center November 6. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 9 in a special presale (see bieberfever.com), and Saturday, June 12 to the general public via www.toyotacentertix.com or 1-866-4-HOUTIX. One dollar from each ticket sold will go to the Pencils for Promise charity, and any remaining tickets (also available at most Houston-area Randall's stores) will be put on sale at the Toyota Center box office (1510 Polk) at 9 a.m. Monday, June 14. Personally, Rocks Off has little to no use for Bieber, but then again, we are not a 12-year-old girl or creepy middle-aged dude (we think). Nevertheless, we checked out his Twitter page this morning - dude has more than 2 million followers - and he can be a pretty engaging guy. We compiled a few of his recent tweets; if you happen to be one of the Bieb's followers, be sure to tell him @hprocksoff says hello.
