Justin Bieber Postpones

The Asian leg of Justin Bieber’s “Justice World Tour”is now postponed along with the rest of the tour. The Asian portion was still on the schedule, but apparently, Bieber’s health problems have persisted.

In a statement, AEG Presents Asia confirmed that Bieber will not perform again this year anywhere, and that all shows will be picked up again sometime next year.

The newly postponed concerts were to have taken place in the Philippines, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan.


Vienna Philharmonic To Perform

Despite ongoing COVID-related restrictions, the Vienna Philharmonic will be the first major international orchestra to perform in Hong Kong since 2020.

According to the South China Morning Post, the ensemble will give two concerts in the city on Oct. 24-25. The Hong Kong performances were “last minute additions” to the Vienna Philharmonic’s Asia tour after the Hong Kong Jockey Club offered to sponsor the appearances.

The Asia tour is being organized by Wu Promotion, a production company based in Beijing. The tour will start in Hong Kong, then travel to Taiwan, where it will perform four times, and then South Korea for concerts in Seoul on Nov. 3-4.
