Justin Bieber Cancels ‘Purpose’ Tour

Justin Bieber has nixed the rest of the dates on his “Purpose World Tour,” which was supposed to play North America this summer and Asia in the fall.  

The pop star hasn’t revealed the reason for the cancellation, other than blaming “unforeseen circumstances.”

The “Purpose World Tour” began in North America in March 2016 in support of Bieber’s fourth studio album.

Here’s the statement posted on Bieber’s website and Facebook page today:

“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 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.”
