It’s official. No one knows how to alienate and frustrate fans like Justin Bieber. The singer has cancelled the remaining dates of his Purpose World Tour, with one source telling TMZ Justin’s “just over it.” A rep for the tour said in a statement, “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 the last 18 months.” Hmm.

Bieber has been on tour since March 2016, and you’d think he could ride out the final 14 concert dates but, sadly, he felt he couldn’t. That means leaving disappointed fans in Texas, California, Colorado, Minnesota, New Jersey and Massachusetts, not to mention his two Toronto dates that were supposed to happen in September. JB was meant to finish the tour in Singapore (after dates in Japan, Hong Kong and the Philippines) but it seems his last show was on July 2 in London.

Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, reached out to fans on Instagram, posting lots of thank yous and a heartfelt apology but was behind the singer’s decision, saying that Justin’s well-being is what comes first and foremost.

An incredible run. Congrats to @justinbieber on an incredible tour and thank you to the entire cast and crew for your unending support. Chris and Nick thank you. AEG thank you. Caa thank you. UMG thank you. @sb_projects Team thank you. To the promoters who believed around the world thank you. To the fans from all over the world who took part over the last 16 months over 6 continents thank you. To Justin who gave it his all night after night thank you. And to those that won’t be able to see it… on behalf of myself, Justin, and the team, we are sorry. That was never our intent. But a man’s soul and well being I truly care about came first and We must all respect and honor that. Justin will be back and I know he looks forward to performing for you and with you all again. One chapter ends and another begins. Thank you again. Now please stop commenting on all my other photos that have nothing to do with this 🙂 just kidding….but I’m not 😂. Jokes aside your support for Justin is inspiring. Cheers.

John Mayer also chimed in to defend Biebs, giving him his approval on knowing when to call it quits.

TMZ caught up with Bieber after the news broke and he insisted “everything’s fine” and he’s looking forward to “resting” and “getting some relaxation.” To his fans, he added, “I love you guys, I think you guys are awesome. Sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed, it’s not [what’s in] my heart or anything, and have a blessed day.”

Despite that, it likely won’t console the thousands of weeping Beliebers who’ve been waiting months to watch their idol perform live. That being said, the fact that he pulled the plug, knowing what that meant to his fans, is a decision he probably didn’t take lightly. And if he was feeling off, he did the right thing by ending it. Some might call him a brat, but it takes a mature person to make that choice, opting to not screw fans over with a flat performance and instead give them their money back. It’s not like he’s retiring from music. He’ll be back, hopefully stronger than ever, and rebound with an album that is equal to or better than Purpose. Just don’t ask him to sing “Despacito.” If he can’t do it now, no way will he able to do it in a couple years.
