Justin Bieber has apologised to fans for “betraying” them, after cancelling the remainder of his ‘Purpose’ tour dates.

The cancelled dates affect shows in Asia and North America, which were due to take place over the next three months. 

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.

“However, after careful consideration he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.”

He added to US website TMZ: “I’m sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed.

“I have been on tour for two years. I’m looking forward to just resting, getting some relaxation and we’re going to ride some bikes.”

The news comes less than a week after Justin was banned from performing in China

The Chinese government blocked his tour from arriving in the country because of his “bad behaviour”, amid their efforts to “purify” its performing arts.
