A teenager has been charged with breaking into a Justin Bieber concert and throwing eggs at the Canadian pop star.

The 17-year-old appeared in a Sydney Children's Court and was charged with breaking and entering, trespassing and malicious damage. He cannot be named because he is a minor.

Video footage of the concert last Friday at Sydney's Acer Arena showed several raw eggs smash on the stage, narrowly missing Justin and his backing singers. They continued to sing and dance.

Police say the boy broke into the arena through the roof.

He was released on bail and is to enter a plea next month.
