No doubt about it: Justin Bieber's a Phishhead.
Two nights after getting accosted at a Toronto nightclub and having one of his gold chains jacked, the teen heartthrob opted for a friendlier crowd when he turned up in Commerce City, Colo., for Phish's summer tour closer at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
Setting the gear shift for the high gear of his soul (as a classic song in the Vermont band's canon goes), Bieber hung out among the phans (in what looks to be general admission no less!) accompanied by his musical director and lead guitarist, Dan Kanter, as noted by Phish's lyricist, Tom Marshall, who broke the news.
"Sure looks like @dankanter and @justinbieber at last night's #Phish show in CO. No one got a better pic?" Marshall tweeted.
Kanter is credited with introducing the "Boyfriend" singer to the Fab Four and, as any member of the Phish cognoscenti will tell you, frequently teases Phish tunes during Bieber concerts (check out Phish songs "Sand" at 4:32 and "First Tube" at 5:35 in this video clip from the Biebs' concert).
"Amazing night with a great crew of phriends. #Phish!" wrote Kanter in a post on Twitter which Justin subsequently retweeted.
Following the Phish show, as noted by Fox 31 Denver and a fan, Bieber subsequently headed to Beta Nightclub in downtown Denver for the Cîroc White Party where he was snapped, shirtless, of course, in the DJ booth.
"Yup @justinbieber parties IN DENVER. @BetaNightclub last night, and Dicks Park @phish Concert. Anybody run into him?" tweeted one reveler.
"@justinbieber hope you had a good time. Come hang out again soon!" added the club.
In other Bieber news, Deadline broke yesterday that his latest film, Justin Bieber's Believe, will screen at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival for select buyers.
The flick is directed by Jon M. Chu, who helmed Bieber's previous concert documentary, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, and also Step Up-3D and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. It follows the Biebs on his most recent tour and features performances as well as the usual behind the scenes footage.
