Celebrity News: The singer announces in a statement the suspension due to “unforeseen circumstances”
Justin Bieber has canceled by surprise the last concerts of his world tour, Purpose, the singer announced in a statement published on its official page and in the social networks in which he indicates that he is “disappointed”, but without going into details. The 23-year-old Canadian interpreter claims “unforeseen circumstances” to justify the cancellation of his tour. In the last 18 months, he had acted in more than 150 shows. In total, 14 concerts canceled in Canada, the United States, Japan, the Philippines, and Singapore.
“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”, explains in the statement.
The singer had 14 concerts pending in the United States, Canada, and Asia. Neither the interpreter nor his team has explained the reasons that led him to make the decision to suspend his tour. On Twitter, Purpose Tour is trending topic and its fans, the beliebers, take leave of the tour with sadness.
The Canadian’s career was clouded a few years ago by multiple legal problems, such as throwing eggs at his neighbor’s house or driving at high speed through the streets of Miami. But it managed to return to the top in 2015 with the release of Purpose, the album that includes the hits Sorry and What Do You Mean? And Love yourself and ranked first in the charts in more than 100 countries.
Justin collaborated on a remix of Despacito, the Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi song that is breaking all records. This Monday was 11 weeks in first place on the Billboard singles chart. China forbade him last week to act because of his “bad behavior”. In 2014 he scandalized the Chinese authorities for visiting the sanctuary of Yasukuni of Japan, which both Beijing and Seoul consider a symbol of Japanese militarism during World War II.
