Justin Bieber Cancels All Remaining Purpose Tour Dates
Justin Bieber has decided to cancel the rest of his Purpose World Tour because of “unforeseen circumstances”, his publicist has announced.
The move will affect 14 dates in Asia and North America over the next three months.
Justin Bieber has performed more than 150 shows since the tour promoting his 2015 album Purpose began in March 2016.

The tour grossed $93.2 million in the first half of 2017, with an average of almost 40,000 ticket sales per date.
Justin Bieber himself has not yet commented on the decision on social media, but unnamed sources told media the singer was “just over it”.
However, a statement on his website read: “Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them.
“He is grateful and honored 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.”
Most of Justin Bieber’s remaining dates were in the US, but he was also due to play in Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia.
Chinese officials said last week that Justin Bieber had been banned from mainland China because he had engaged in what they described as “bad behavior”.
