Justin Bieber is apparently hoping to use the mistakes he's made in his life as inspiration for a visual display that will open his Purpose tour.

Justin Bieber is said to be planning to use the mistakes in his life as inspiration for the opening of his Purpose tour.

Despite only being 21, Justin has gone through a lot in his life - including several high profile relationships, numerous arrests and even spending a day in jail.

His most recent album Purpose marks his musical comeback and sold an impressive 522,000 copies in its first week of release.

Now Justin is in the midst of planning the tour for his album, which kicks off in Seattle on 9 March (16), and is apparently hoping to begin proceedings with a visual display influenced by the various judgement errors he has made.

According to sources at, the crowd will be treated to images of Justin falling through the sky, amid storms and cloud that represent his mistakes.

"A screen will show abstract visuals of Justin falling through a dark, clouded atmosphere," an insider told the outlet of the working concept for the beginning of the show. "He will be screaming, reaching and possibly passing through barriers as he descends into the dark unknown."

While viewing the intense display, audience members will also hear Justin's voice revealing the fall he has suffered during his journey to success. The singer will then have a flash of realisation which sees his path reversed, and he will then be seen flying "gracefully and slowly toward the heavens."

At that point, Justin will finally make his entrance onto the stage.

Justin has enjoyed huge success with Purpose, which includes the hit singles Sorry, Love Yourself and What Do You Mean?

Speaking recently about his musical inspiration, Justin insisted he has always tried to be unique.

"I just loved to sing and work on my music," he recalled to Britain's OK! magazine. "I didn't try to copy anyone. I loved Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder and I looked up to what Usher and Justin Timberlake achieved when they were young and then went on to have even bigger careers later. That's the kind of career I'd like to have."
