Justin Bieber postpones 2020 tour dates

Trek was set to kick off in May

In light of the current public health crisis, and with the deepest concern for all those being affected, Justin Bieber will be postponing all currently scheduled 2020 dates for The Changes Tour.

“While Justin – along with his band, dancers and crew – has been hard at work preparing an amazing show, he has always put the health and well-being of his fans first and foremost,” a rep shares. “Justin is anxiously awaiting the opportunity to get back out on the road and perform in a space that is safe for everyone. He asks that his fans hold on to their tickets, as they will be honored as soon as the dates are rescheduled. Information on rescheduled dates will be forthcoming soon.”

The summer trek was slated to kick off May 14th in Seattle, WA in support of his latest album Changes. The Changes Tour is presented by T-Mobile. No word if special guests Kehlani and Jaden Smith will support the rescheduled dates.

Bieber is the latest artist to cancel or postpone dates as the COVID-19 pandemic grows globally. Several states have issued “Stay at Home” orders with others quickly following. Only essential businesses, such as grocery stores, banks and gas stations, remain open in those states until further notice. Schools are out for at least a month, but possibly through the end of the school year. International travel has also been restricted until further notice to help combat the rapid spread of the deadly virus that originated in Wuhan, China.

More than 820k cases of the coronavirus have appeared throughout the world. The United States now leads with 163,539 cases and 2860 deaths, the CDC says.
