Bieber’s representative did not specify details about the cancellation decision in a statement released on July 24, but said that the singer “loves his fans and does not want to disappoint them.”
“However, after careful consideration, Bieber has decided that he will not perform any more shows on the Purpose World Tour” – the statement said.
Biber has been touring with the Purpose World Tour for the past 18 months, performing more than 150 shows on six continents. His next performances will include shows in US and Canadian cities, including shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
Bieber plans to close this tour with shows in Asia in September, at venues in Toykyo, Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia.
Bieber decided to cancel the tour after China announced it would not invite this Canadian pop star to perform in the country of billions of people because of his “evil behavior” in the past.
It is known that during his visit to China in 2013, Bieber was criticized when many photos showed that the star visited the Great Wall with two bodyguards.
Tickets to Bieber’s canceled shows will be refunded at the exact ticket price. As of April, Bieber’s tour has earned nearly $200 million.
