One month after pausing his world tour due to health concerns, Justin Bieber has officially postponed the Justice World Tour’s remaining stops until 2023.
The 28-year-old singer just recently took to social media to inform fans of the news, which follows tour cancellations from Rage Against the Machine, Coldplay, and Santigold. Moreover, Bieber’s latest Justice World Tour delay arrives after he shelved a number of tour dates over the summer (amid a battle with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome) before hitting the road once again and then taking another break in September.
“Justin Bieber announces the Justice World Tour ended with Rock in Rio,” begins the update posted on the artist’s Instagram (but not Twitter) account. (Notwithstanding the declaration and what appears to be the formal end of the concert series, it seems that organizers intend to reschedule the involved shows, possibly as part of a different tour.)
“All remaining dates of his world tour postponed to next year,” proceeds the image message’s all-caps introductory section, noting also that the development “includes all dates up to and including March 25” of 2023. “Ticketholders will be informed on next steps as updates occur.
“Justin Bieber today announced that the remaining dates of his WORLD TOUR are being postponed,” the post continues. “The tour, originally slated to begin in 2020 before being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, kicked off in February of this year in San Diego, CA and made stops in ten countries across three continents.
“On September 6, Justin first announced he was taking a break from touring to make his health a priority. That news was followed on September 15 by his announcement of the cancelation of twelve dates running through October 18.
“With today’s announcement, these remaining dates are officially postponed. The potential new dates will be subject to venue and date availability. Fans with tickets to all postponed WORLD TOUR dates should await further news on dates, venues and cities as updates become available,” the text concludes.
Predictably, irked Beliebers are venting about the development in social media posts of their own, expressing concerns relating to refunds as well as the Canadian creator’s health.
“still waiting on my refund from the postponed show in april, then the new date in july, this is very upsetting and unprofessional,” raged a disgruntled would-be attendee.
“Las Vegas needs a REFUND. You can’t keep holding the tickets without a date,” echoed a second user.
“the way you handled the situation was unprofessional from the beginning, start caring about us please,” urged another fed-up Bieber fanatic.
“what does it mean ‘the justice world tour ended with rock in rio’ but the rest of the dates are postponed? like make up your mind? give us clear information for once,” demanded a fourth follower.
“Stop playing with our time and most Importantly our money! We just want a refund at this point!!! everyone’s financial situation is different. Give us our money back,” commanded a fifth and final ticketholder.
