Meanwhile, "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the 'Purpose World Tour' concerts. Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them," read the statement released by Bieber's team, reported AFP. This is how Twitter had reacted to the news. "I'm not mad at Justin. Just the way this was announced. They just pulled the plug like nothing. What a backstabber," read a tweet while: "I don't even think this was a hard decision for Justin. He just put himself first and that's okay. He didn't seem upset so there's that," read another.

Justin Bieber's now-cancelled Purpose Tour had 15 more shows lined-up in the roster. Following the sudden termination, countries like Japan, USA, the singer's native Canada, Philippines and Singapore among other destinations will not see Justin Bieber perform as part of the tour. The Purpose Tour, which was currently in its seventh month, made the 23-year-old singer tour cities across Europe, South America, Australia and India. Justin Bieber's much-awaited concert in Mumbai was held on May 10 but not without some controversy and criticism. The much-hyped show was reviewed negatively for not being energetic enough and also for Justin Bieber's reported lip syncing.
Justin Bieber, 23, performed over 150 concerts as part of the Purpose Tour, checking off USA, Europe, Australia, India, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates from the list.
