Bieber’s 2020 ‘Changes’ tour would have been his first live tour in nearly three years, spanning over the course of 45 days. It was originally schedule to begin May 14 in Seattle.
However, dates will need to be shifted.
“In light of the current public health crisis, and with the deepest concern for all those being affected, Justin Bieber will be postponing all currently scheduled 2020 dates for the Changes Tour,” Bieber’s team said in a statement. “While Justin — along with his band, dancers and crew — has been hard at work preparing an amazing show, he has always put the health and well-being of his fans first and foremost. Justin is anxiously awaiting the opportunity to get back out on the road and perform in a space that is safe for everyone.”
However, he’s asking fans to hold onto their tickets — as new dates will be announced soon.
Bieber initially announced this ambitious tour on Christmas Eve, right before the release of his ‘Changes’ album. It was his first album since 2015’s ‘Purpose.’
March 5, Bieber began to modify the tour — downsizing venues on eight of his dates because of underwhelming ticket sales. When the World Health Organization encouraged Americans to shelter in place, many artists began canceling or postponing events.
Bieber quickly followed suit.
New tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
