Justin Bieber Cancels Concert in Portugal After “Rough Week”

By  | 



The past few days have been rough on both Justin Bieber and his beloved fans overseas. After technical difficulties made him late, the 19-year-old was welcomed to the stage at London’s O2 Arena to a crowd of booing Beliebers. A couple days later, the “Boyfriend” singer passed out on stage and was rushed to the hospital. Now, it seems that more BELIEVE tour ticket-holders will be left with nothing but disappointment.

According to the original dates for the performances, Justin was scheduled to play at Pavilhao Atlantico in Lisbon, Portugal on March 11 and 12. However, the official website for the venue now reads as follows: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber was forced to cancel the second performance in Portugal, March 12… The Canadian singer is eager to play for the Portuguese fans on March 11. Holders of tickets valid for March 12 should contact the respective place of purchase to receive a refund within 30 days of the date of the scheduled concert, which ends April 11.”

Some sites claim that the second show was axed due to lack of demand, but Scooter Braun insists that it’s because of “logistical problems with the unions” instead, and that the tabloids are full of it for inferring that it was because of low ticket sales.
