Justin Bieber coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa

And with that, 20,000 screaming girls just got an early Christmas present.

Yes, mop-topped sensation Justin Bieber is coming to Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum on Dec. 19, according to Pollstar and Bieber's official fan club. It's one of the last stops on a just-announced extension of his world tour, which is already slated to hit Orlando on Aug. 4.

According to his fan club site, tickets are scheduled to go onsale at 10 a.m. June 12, but beyond that, details are sketchy. We'll update this when we know more.

*** UPDATE *** Well, that was fast. According to the Forum, tickets will indeed go onsale at 10 a.m. June 12 through Ticketmaster, and they'll be priced at $33.25, $43.25 and $53.25. One dollar from each ticket sold will be donated to the educational charity Pencils of Promise. Click here for all the details.

We think you should splurge for the "My World: The Ultimate Justin Bieber VIP Experience" package, which includes entry into the sound check, VIP sections, catered VIP hospitality, an autograph, and souvenier laminates and tickets and more. Your daughter will accept nothing less!

It's funny how fleeting teen idolatry can be. Just last November, Bieber was an afterthought on the bill for Last Damn Show at Tropicana Field, and now he's the hottest star in pop music. Always pay attention to the openers, kids!
