Ahead of the first of two shows at TD Garden in Boston, the 22-year-old singer ventured into the Public Garden for some alone time. But his presence didn't go unnoticed, as fans took photos of him listening to music on a bench and feeding a squirrel near a tree. Bieber himself shared an uncaptioned landscape and a selfie on Instagram, writing, "Eyes are the window to the soul." At one point, Bieber—dressed in a Thrasher hoodie—removed his shoes and wandered back to his hotel barefoot. Thanks to a bodyguard who had kept his distance, his kicks were later returned.
Instagram user Windsor Dalton was just one of several fans to snap a picture of Bieber strolling solo in the park. "WHEN U WALKIN HOME FROM WORK AND @justinbieber IS TOO," he wrote.
