Justin Bieber abruptly ends his world tour
Singer Justin Bieber (below) abruptly cancelled the remainder of his world tour on Monday, citing “unforeseen circumstances”. The 23-yearold Canadian superstar — who in recent years has been as known for off-stage antics as for his music — was to resume his Purpose tour on Thursday with 15 shows across North America and Asia.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts,” a statement from his management said.
“Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them,” it said, adding that he made the decision after “careful consideration” and would refund tickets.
Bieber’s team gave no further details. Bieber is a fixture of tabloids who has frequently faced legal trouble over incidents including racing a car through Miami and throwing eggs at a neighbor's house.
But his career had gone back on track with the spectacular success of his album Purpose in late 2015 that generated a stream of hits, including Sorry.
