Justin Bieber Cancels Remainder Of 'Purpose World Tour'
Justin Bieber has cancelled the remaining shows on his Purpose World Tour.
According to a statement, “unforeseen circumstances” are behind the decision to pull the plug.
“Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them,” it reads. “He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over last 18 months. 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.”
It is not known why Bieber is ending the tour, although TMZ cited a source as saying the pop star is "just over it."
UPDATE: Bieber Says Sorry
Bieber had 15 more concerts scheduled between July 29 and Oct. 10, including at the Rogers Centre in Toronto on Sept. 5 and 6.
The Purpose tour kicked off on March 9, 2016 and stopped in nine Canadian cities that year. According to Pollstar, the tour grossed more than $200 million USD.
Many reviewers of the show claimed Bieber looked "bored" and lip-synced most of his songs.
Last October, The Guardian noted "he looks either bored senseless or actively miserable, like a man who’s been hauling himself around the world doing this kind of thing since he was 15 and doesn’t really want to do it any more."
