Justin Bieber has reportedly canceled the remaining dates of his Purpose World Tour due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
A statement from his representatives on Monday said that Bieber “loves his fans and hates to disappoint them,” but no other details about the cancellation were given. Fans will get their tickets refunded.
The Purpose World Tour started in March 2016 and was set to end October 2017. It included 150 shows across the world, with Bieber zig-zagging between America, Europe, and Asia and other continents, and barely taking any long breaks from touring that time.
Aside from the fact that touring the world can be exhausting for musicians, Bieber himself has had a few problems in the past year or so when it comes to performing and being in public. He stopped photo-ops last year for fans, barely even sings the words to his verse on “Despacito” apparently, and recently he was banned from China. Judging by his Instagram, I really think he just needs some time off?
