Justin Bieber apologises for cancelling rest of Purpose World Tour

Canadian pop star Justin Bieber has apologised to his fans after cancelling the remaining dates of his Purpose World Tour because of “unforeseen circumstances”.
The move affects 14 dates in Asia and North America which were coming up over the next three months.
The canceled stops will begin with Saturday’s show in Arlington, Texas, and tickets will be refunded.
“I’m sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed.” Bieber told celebrity news website
“I have been on tour for two years. I’m looking forward to just resting, getting some relaxation and we’re going to ride some bikes.” Bieber added.
The singer has performed more than 150 shows on the tour, promoting his 2015 album Purpose, since March 2016.
The tour grossed $93.2m (£71.5m) in the first half of 2017, with an average of almost 40,000 ticket sales per date.
A statement on his website read: “Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them.
Bieber’s world tour for his fourth album began in March 2016 and showcased hits such as “Sorry” and “What Do You Mean?” His concerts grossed $163.3 million last year, according to industry tracker Pollstar.
In December, the singer announced an additional North American leg of the tour to run through the summer. Those added shows, as well as a few stops in Asia, have now been scrubbed.
The Canadian pop star has hit bumps along his tour recently and last week he was banned from performing in China for “bad behaviors.”
