Justin Bieber cancels rest of world tour


2017-07-25

Justin Bieber has cancelled the rest of his Purpose World Tour due to “unforeseen circumstances”.

The move will affect 14 dates in Asia and North America over the next three months.

Bieber has performed more than 150 shows since the tour promoting his 2015 album Purpose began in March 2016.

The tour grossed $93.2m in the first half of 2017, with an average of almost 40,000 ticket sales per date.

The singer himself has not yet commented on the decision on social media, but unnamed sources told US media he was “just over it”.

But a statement on his website read “Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them. He is grateful and honoured to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across six continents during this run. However, after careful consideration he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.”
