JUSTIN BIEBER CANCELS WORLD TOUR

Justin Bieber cancels World Tour because of "unforeseen circumstances", his publicist has said.

The move will affect 14 dates in Asia and North America over the next three months.

Bieber has performed more than 150 shows since the tour promoting his 2015 album Purpose began in 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.

The singer himself has not yet commented on the decision on social media, but unnamed sources told US media he was "just over it".

But a statement on his website read: "Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them.

"He is grateful and honoured to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across six continents during this run.

Most of Bieber's remaining dates were in the US, but he was also due to play in Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia.

Bieber also had a message for his fans. "I love you guys," he said. "I think you guys are awesome. Sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed. It's not my heart or anything."

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.

Chinese officials said last week that the Canadian pop star had been banned from mainland China because he had engaged in what they described as "bad behaviour".

Bieber's decision comes a few weeks after British singer Adele cancelled the last two shows of her world tour on medical advice after damaging her vocal cords.

The Canadian pop star has hit bumps along his tour recently.

Last week, Bieber was banned from performing in China for "bad behaviors."

"His series of misbehaviors while living abroad and during his performances in China has caused public resentment," the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture said in a statement. "To regulate the domestic entertainment market and purify its environment, we find it inappropriate to bring in performers with bad behaviors."
