Canadian superstar Justin Bieber has postponed the rest of his tour dates just in time for his long-awaited return to Asia this month.
Concert organizers this morning didn’t even say sorry to Asian fans nor give reasons in their last-minute announcement that stated that all leftover dates from Bieber’s Justice World Tour will be postponed to next year.
The Asia leg was supposed to kick off in Kuala Lumpur on Oct. 22, followed by Singapore at the National Stadium on Oct. 25, before moving on to the Philippines, Jakarta, Bangkok and Japan.
“Justin Bieber today announced that the remaining dates of his world tour are being postponed,” organizer AEG Presents Asia wrote.

The tour, which was originally scheduled in 2020, finally happened this February in California and continued around 10 countries.
But in September, the 28-year-old announced that he was taking a break “to make his health a priority” and canceled 12 dates after revealing that he was diagnosed with Ramsay-Hunt syndrome. The tour’s last stop was Rock in Rio.
Local organizer Unusual Entertainment this morning said the venue will remain at the National Stadium but for those who are not here to stay, they can request for a full refund through Ticketmaster from Monday.
This came after they assured fans after the September health scare that the Asia stops are “set to continue as scheduled”.
If this abrupt postponement might seem like deja vu to you, you’re right. Bieber previously also canceled his 2017 Purpose World Tour stops in Asia, including Singapore, due to “unforeseen circumstances”. This happened just days after tickets went up for sale.
