Earlier this week, Bieber cancelled the remaining portion of his Purpose World Tour with an abrupt announcement and citing "unforeseen circumstances" in a statement released by his management team. Bieber, who was yet to perform in destinations like Japan, USA, his native Canada, Philippines and Singapore among other places, was criticised for cancelling the tour without closure. Later that day, Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun posted an apology on behalf of the singer saying: "...to those that won't be able to see it... on behalf of myself, Justin, and the team, we are sorry. That was never our intent. But a man's soul and well-being I truly care about came first and we must all respect and honour that. Justin will be back and I know he looks forward to performing for you and with you all again. One chapter ends and another begins."
Justin Bieber performed in over 150 concerts as part of the Purpose Tour with a gig in Mumbai on May 10.
