Justin Bieber’s Purpose world tour is coming to an early end.
Bieber, 23, has cancelled the remainder of the tour. With just 14 shows of the tour left, Bieber confirmed Monday he is not going to finish it, pulling out of the remaining dates.
Bieber’s next few shows included a stop in Arlington, Texas on Saturday and several other stops throughout the U.S. in August.
The singer’s reps released a statement to ET Canada regarding the early cancellation and revealed that all ticketholders will have their tickets refunded
“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 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.”
A Justin Bieber tour source tells Entertainment Tonight: “This is a guy who has had 150 shows on this tour, on six continents, over the last year and half and he’s tired. He needed a break and as much as he didn’t want to disappoint his fans, the best decision for him was to cancel the remaining tour dates.”
John Mayer tweeted in support of Bieber’s decision to cancel the rest of his tour dates.
TMZ caught up with The Biebs, who didn’t really offer an explanation, but did say that “I’ve been on tour for two years.”
He offered an apology for fans: “Sorry to anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed, it’s not my heart or anything… Have a blessed day.”
This news comes after Bieber was recently banned from performing in China due to his alleged bad behaviour.
“In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers,” officials said in a statement released by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture website.
