The pop star, who issued an apology Tuesday morning, was labeled 'disgusting' by angry parents and young fans who couldn't stay out late for his arrival.
Justin Bieber's latest rebellious move could cost him a few fans.
On the heels of the teen heartthrob's "worst birthday" London club fiasco, Bieber angered British fans and parents by showing up hours late to his own concert Monday night.
The pop star took to the stage following a two hour delay for his tour's sell-out opening night at London's O2 Arena, and offered no excuse or apology for turning up well after 10 p.m.
His belated appearance - just 25 minutes before his set was due to end - meant hundreds of teen Beliebers, who'd paid up to $100 for a ticket, had to leave without seeing their idol.
A parent told ITV News: "We were all fans, and now we hate him."
Thousands of fans, many of them under 16, had waited for hours to get a glimpse of the star - with Bieber warning them via his Twitter account to "get ready" for the show.
Jaden Smith and Carly Rae Jepsen warmed up the 20,000-strong crowd to start the already delayed concert, but the audience was then left waiting more than 45 minutes for the "Baby" singer to appear on stage.
Reports suggested Bieber cut his set by 30 minutes when he finally did appear.
Tracey Wilson, who took her teenage daughter to the show, told BBC's 5 Live: "There was no apology to say why or I'm really sorry or to say something's happened. It's disgusting."
"It got to about 9.30 and they were starting to boo, you'd think someone would have come on then," she added.
The O2 Arena has apologized for the delay, tweeting: "Sorry to all the Justin Bieber fans for the lateness of his show tonight."
