Justin Bieber’s “Purpose World Tour” may have felt never-ending, but nothing lasts forever. After raking in over $200 million, it’s finally over as Justin has announced he’s canceled the remaining 14 dates in the United States and Asia. The cancellation also includes a pair of homecoming shows in Toronto, but none of the shows will happen due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts,” reads an official statement on Justin’s Facebook page. “Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them.”
“He is grateful and honored to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across 6 continents during this run,” the statement continues, apparently including disasters like Justin’s first show in India. “However, after careful consideration he has decided he will not be performing any further dates.”

The tour, which kicked off on March 9, 2016, has been an epic run. While Justin has been dogged by lip-syncing allegations and his troubled past catching up with him, he’s mixed plenty of business and pleasure while out on the road. But in a short interview with TMZ, Justin made it clear he’s looking forward to chilling out without shows looming on his calendar.
“I’ve been on tour for two years,” Justin said when asked about the cancellation. He promised that he was going to rest and relax and offered up a message for his fans: “Sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed.”
