Justin Bieber is ready to take the stage this summer in the U.K.

The singer has just been confirmed to headline the Fusion Festival, set to take place in Birmingham's Cofton Park this August.

Bieber will play the Friday night show on Aug. 28, Captial FM reports. It marks his first show there in two years; Bieber's last U.K. date was in 2013 during his Believe tour, which wrapped up later that year. "I love the UK and I'm excited to be playing at Fusion this year," Bieber said in a statement. "There are some great artists on the line-up so to be headlining the Friday night, is a real honor."

Bieber also tweeted he's excited to return to the stage.

Missed the stage. Time to get back to work
