Beliebers from all over the world were stunned when their idol, Justin Bieber, confirmed that he will be taking a break from his hectic schedule after 18 months of going from places to places for his "Purpose" world tour. His third worldwide concert series kicked off last March 9, 2016, wherein he gathered over 12,000 fans inside the KeyArena in Seattle.

Bieber takes a breather from performing

The Canadian pop singer has performed for his over two million fans in the course of his concert series. Justin Bieber is supposed to bring his "Purpose" world tour in the United States, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Singapore for the final leg of the concert series.

But before his show in Arlington which was set this Saturday, the "Love Yourself" artist announced that he is canceling his performances in these countries "due to unforeseen circumstances" as cited in his statement on Monday. Justin Bieber and his company did not provide further details about the sudden decision.

Beliebers who wished to see him through his "Purpose" concert tour were mostly affected by the news and demanded that Justin Bieber gives his reason for canceling the remaining shows. Some of them were disappointed and sad, while others were rather understanding of the singer's decision.

Meanwhile, the "Cold Water" artist reassured his fans that there is nothing to worry about him.

The 23-year-old singer that he is just taking some time off to rest and relax from his non-stop schedule. He also extended his apologies to his supporters for disappointing them. "I'm sorry for anyone who feels, like, disappointed or betrayed, it's not in my heart or anything and has a blessed day," he said as per Billboard.

Singers recommend Bieber to take some time off

While many were unhappy of the "Purpose" world tour cancellation, John Mayer clearly understood Justin Bieber's decision and even asked the fans to do the same. In a couple of tweets, the "Who You Love" crooner explained that there is always a reason why an artist has to cancel his or her shows.

Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos reposted John Mayer's tweets after he talked about mental health stigma among musicians. His statements came after Chester Bennington died from apparent suicide which was reportedly propelled by depression.

Michael Angelakos even shared his intent to focus on treating his bipolar disorder which has caused the fans to speculate whether Passion Pit is planning to go on hiatus while the frontman is recovering. The 30-year-old musician, however, clarified to Pitchfork that he is "not really on hiatus" contrary to reports.
