Sorry, Bieber fans. Justin Bieber has officially canceled the remainder of his Purpose World Tour.
On Monday (July 24), the “What Do You Mean?” singer announced on his website that he’s scrapping the rest of the dates on his current tour. Sadly, he didn’t reveal whether or not he’d be going back on tour at a later date, or why he’s decided to cut this tour short.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts,” Bieber’s website reads. “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.”
The statement continued to thank everyone for their hard work on the tour and revealed that anyone who bought tickets to one of the upcoming shows would be refunded for their purchase.
“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,” the statement explained. “Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.”
With the European leg coming to a close earlier this month, the tour was set to pick back up in America, with shows in Texas this weekend, followed by performances in Pasadena, California and Denver, Colorado, amongst others later this summer.
While fans are totally bummed about this announcement — understandably so — we’re hoping nothing too serious regarding the singer has led to this surprising announcement.
