Melvin Baldwin Gets Set for Part 2 of Justin Bieber's World Tour

Pearl artist and drumming extraordinaire, Melvin “Melly” Baldwin, is gearing up for Round 2 of Justin Bieber’s “Believe: World Tour”, with the first date of this continuing trek taking place in less than a month!  The second leg of this massive arena world tour kicks off at the Valley View Casino Center, in San Diego, CA, on June 22nd, and will make its way around the US and up into Canada for the following 6 weeks before coming to a close at the Philips Arena, in Atlanta, GA, on August 10th.   Justin Bieber and has been touring the world in support of his 2012 multiplatinum selling release, Believe, which was released in June of 2012 and instantly rocketed to No. 1 Album-status in the United States, Canada, Australia, Austria, Ireland, New Zealand, and in the United Kingdom, while debuting in the Top 3 in France, Germany, and Switzerland.  And due to the continuing success of Justin Bieber, and the incredibly high demand he receives from the ‘Belibers’, Justin turns to his trusted team of world renowned musicians to apply their endless talents for the album’s world tour- such renowned musicians as Pearl’s own, Melvin “Melly” Baldwin.

Throughout the first leg of the tour, Melvin Baldwin has shined at center stage, tricking out Justin’s pop-hits with a flawless execution of drumming perfection!  Laying down the steady and driving groove that keeps the highly qualified band in line, and the tens-of-thousands of fans on their feet, Melly controls the stage with his flashy-yet-tasteful approach to Justin Bieber’s unmistakable sound, appropriately displaying his creative chops without stealing the show… which is lucky for Justin.  The first leg of the “Believe: World Tour” began back in September and served as a debut for Melly Baldwin and his gorgeous Reference Series drums.  Finished in the classic Piano Black lacquer (103), and beautifully accented with gold hardware, this double-bass masterpiece serves as the perfect canvas for Melly to display his superior skills on, with the large ‘3-tom’ setup helping to achieve the exact tones heard in Justin’s ever-popular hits.  Melly’s setup is as follows:
