Before Justin Bieber sets the date for his trip to outer space on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo, he has some more places to visit on earth. The pop star has announced gigs in Asia and South America as well as Mexico, Australia and New Zealand.

He wasn’t joking when he entered “All Around The World” as the location on his official Twitter profile.

The new dates are part of his “Believe Tour” in support of his third studio album, 2012’s Believe. So far this year the Biebs has toured the U.S. and Europe, followed by a handful of gigs in United Arab Emirates and South Africa.  

Up next is another leg of U.S. and Canadian dates, launching June 22 in San Diego and scheduled through Aug. 10 in Atlanta.

As for his trip to space, Virgin Group founder/chairman Richard Branson announced the news June 5.

NPR points out that although SpaceShipTwo is planning its first suborbital test flight sometime in 2013, Bieber’s flight might not happen right away because the space ship’s capacity is limited to six passengers. So far, about 600 people have put down a refundable deposit for a ride, including Ashton Kutcher, Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie. A seat on the commercial space-flight costs $250,000.

Bieber replied to Branson, Braun and Birgin Galactic’s Twitter page June 5 saying, “Let’s shoot a music video in SPACE!! #nextLEVEL”
