The tour was unexpectedly canceled on July 24th
A week after announcing stadium dates for his Purpose World Tour, Justin Bieber has canceled the remainder of the dates. The news was announced earlier today (July 24th).
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts,” a press release we received states. “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.”
No reason was given as of press time. The pop star just finished a European run in June and was set to resume the North American run Saturday, July 29th in Arlington, TX in support of his 2015 Purpose LP. September dates were set for Japan, but have also been canceled.
Bieber recently announced a partnership with Bravado, Universal Music Group’s (UMG) leading merchandise and brand management company, to present his Purpose The Stadium Tour Merch Collection, a brand new collection released in lookbook format. The merchandise was available at tour stops.
Last month, Madame Tussauds Orlando unveiled a wax figure of Bieber. The award-winning singer-songwriter’s newest figure arrived just in time for National Selfie Day on June 21st. At the unveiling, local super fans had the opportunity to take the first official selfies with Bieber’s latest wax likeness.
