Justin Bieber said he will push through with his scheduled Friday concert in London despite collapsing onstage the previous evening.

Justin Bieber is soldiering forth.

Living up to the time-honored maxim that the show must go on, the pop star will be pushing through with his scheduled Friday concert at London's O2 Arena despite collapsing onstage the previous evening due to breathing problems and eventually landing in the hospital.

"Good morning everyone. As things stand Justin Bieber is still set to perform the final night of his shows at The O2 this evening," the O2 Arena's Twitter feed posted early Friday.

A spokesman for the arena also said that "as far as we are concerned everything is on, on, on," per published reports.

During his performance Thursday, the 19-year-old briefly passed out onstage after experiencing shortness of breath. Following a quick break backstage, where he was administered oxygen, the pop star returned to finish the show, despite a doctor's recommendation that he cancel the remainder of the concert.

Eyewitnesses told E! News that fans in attendance showed their tremendous support for Bieber, cheering him on and chanting his name throughout.

Hours later, the "Boyfriend" crooner took to Twitter to give everyone a heads-up on his condition, posting a shirtless photo of himself while wearing headphones and resting up on a hospital bed

"getting better," he tweeted. "thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love."
