News outlets are buzzing about Justin Bieber’s decision to cancel the remaining concerts scheduled on his "Purpose" Tours. The update is a huge disappointment for thousands of young fans who have excitedly purchased tickets to see the pop star. The earliest canceled concert had been set for Saturday in Arlington, Texas.

Announcements online

The announcement came from Bieber’s official Facebook page and website. In a paragraph-long statement, the 23-year old pop star thanked his fans for their undying support during the concert tour. It was a long journey that lasted for 18 months.

He said he hated disappointing his fans but due to unforeseen circumstances, had to cancel the rest of the tour.

The statement also highlighted the accomplishments of the tour so far. He thanked his cast and crew for being by his side for more than 150 successful concerts spanning six continents. This is pretty impressive for Bieber and his crew. True enough, they have accomplished a lot over the past one year and six months.

The statement did not mention any exact reason for the cancellation. It only stated there were “unforeseen circumstances” that led Bieber to decide on canceling the rest of the shows. This unexpected move will affect most of the American tours and a few concerts outside the country.

Best-selling album

The World Tour commenced in March 2016 as a way to advertise and promote his fourth album entitled "Purpose." Bieber creates awesome content and songs, and his albums have always been successful in the market. The Purpose album includes the hit pop sings “What Do You Mean?” and “Sorry.” Collectively, the tour has earned nearly an astounding US$ 200 million in ticket sales.

The tour originally had minimal concert dates. Last December, Bieber announced new schedules for additional shows in North America.

Concert producers scrapped these additional shows as well as concerts in Asia. The cancellation statement informed ticket buyers that their purchases would be fully refunded. The canceled dates include stops across the U.S., Canada, Japan, the Philippines, and Singapore.

In total, 14 shows will not push through with thousands of fans left hanging.

Burn out from 150 plus concerts

According to those close to the production, the main reason for the cancellation is exhaustion. After 150 shows, sources say he was simply tired and needed a break. Only a few people understand the toil and fatigue of traveling across countries, giving one’s 100 percent performance each night and gathering up enough energy for each show. Thousands of fans expect nothing less.

In an interview with TMZ, the pop star assured everyone that he was fine. All he needed was to rest. He said he was looking forward to getting some relaxation after being on tour for nearly two years. Once again, he expressed his apologies for those disappointed or felt betrayed by his decision. All things considered, it seems Bieber’s camp failed to anticipate the fact that the 23-year old would need his rest as well.
