If you're the age of the grandparents of Justin Bieber this one might hurt a little: it seems the 18-year-old pop singer is a bigger draw than pop icon, Paul McCartney, formerly of The Beatles.
Or at least that's the case in Mexico City. There Bieber, fresh off promo stops in Europe, is to play a free concert in that city's central plaza on Monday and Tourism Secretary Carlos Mackinlay told media that it looks as if Bieber will have more fans attend than McCartney did when he played there on May 10.

One of pop's greatest songwriters, McCartney drew some 200,000 people to that concert but Mackinlay said that they expect "a little more" for the Never Say Never Kid. Bieber, whose album 'Believe' is due out in North America on Tuesday, recently drew massive crowds in Norway, France and Germany.
In Mexico City, among other preparations for the Bieber concert, there will be 6,000 police on hand and 500 portable toilets.
