Justin Bieber abruptly cancels Purpose World Tour: 'Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint'


Justin Bieber unexpectedly canceled the remainder of his Purpose World Tour due to "unforeseen circumstances," his team said in a statement Monday.

Bieber has performed 154 stadium shows over the past year, leaving fans to wonder why he is bowing out with just 15 left. An insider told Variety it "wasn't a decision made overnight" and that Bieber had the final call himself.

Bieber was scheduled to resume the tour's North American leg this week with a July 29 performance in Arlington. Those tickets, as well as tickets for the other 14 other upcoming performances, will be refunded, according to the official statement.

It is unclear what conflict or issue has led Bieber to scrap the dates. He hasn't yet spoken publicly about the cancellation.

The statement in its entirety is below:

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts. Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them. He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over last 18 months. He is grateful and honored to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across 6 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.
