Justin Bieber halts rest of world tour
Justin Bieber's “Justice” world tour has come to an abrupt end.
After several postponements, the singer and his team have seemingly called off the remaining shows of the tour's European leg and more, including the June 2024 shows scheduled for the Kia Forum in Inglewood. The Utilita Arena Sheffield in the U.K., one of the upcoming stops on Bieber's tour, announced on Tuesday “the show has been canceled.”
Fans on Twitter shared screenshots from ticket sales platforms AXS and Ticketmaster announcing that their upcoming events have been canceled as well.
“We regret to inform you that the Justin Bieber shows planned to take place at The O2 arena have been cancelled,” according to a screenshot of an email from the London venue that was shared in a tweet. “We understand you will be disappointed and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause,” the email continued.
Additionally, the Ticketmaster website listed a majority of shows, including those at the Tauron Arena in Krakow, Poland, and the AO Arena in Manchester, England, as canceled. Several of Bieber's 2024 shows are also listed as canceled.
Representatives for Bieber did not immediately respond for confirmation on Tuesday.
The “Justice” tour cancellation comes months after Bieber, 28, announced that he would take a break from touring in September. The singer said in a post to his Instagram story that calling off future shows would allow him to focus on himself.
“After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now,” the “Peaches” singer said in a statement a day after performing at the Rock in Rio in Rio de Janeiro.
He continued: “So I'm going to take a break from touring for the time being. I'm going to be OK, but I need time to rest and get better.”
Bieber first postponed his tour in June 2022 after sharing with fans that he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a virus that has caused partial facial paralysis.
