Justin Bieber

Cancels Concert

Because of Empty Seats

Justin Bieber cancelled his Portugal concert Tuesday -- not because he's sick, not because he's melting down -- because ticket sales were "soft" and it felt like the right thing to do. Just tell that to the fans who are getting stood up.

Sources connected to Justin have confirmed ... it was a "business decision" that triggered the cancellation. Our sources say ticket sales were still "good ... more than 60%" ... just not good enough.

It's pretty common for lesser artists to bail when sales are bad, but unusual for singers on Justin's level.

I suspected this may be the case. Whatever happened to Justin loving his fans so much? I don't care if it's only 1/2 full - there will be last minute ticket sales ... as long as it doesn't cost him or the venue money, he should do it for the fans he does have. Bad decision IMO.

Bieber's just a pawn in this whole ordeal - I'm happier that douche king Scooter Braun may be losing some money.

If you give an average teenage boy millions of dollars, world wide fame and freedom to do what they want, when they want, with whom they want, most would go astray.


Justin Bieber was a good kid with a great heart and a lot of talent. He was down to earth, genuine, respectful and kind. Most of all he was humble and truly appreciated the support of his fans. THAT is why he had so many fans, and that is why their parents supported him.


Its obvious Justin is growing up and wants to shake his teen heart throb image. That is understandable, but he’s trying too hard and it seems to be backfiring. Perhaps Justin should look to his mother, his team and even older singers like Justin Timberlake for better guidance? Maybe he needs to take a break from touring, move back home for a while and come back to the spotlight if and when he’s ready?

if you have an audience and you are a true performer you will continue with the show no matter how many people are their and how much you are making because they are your fans and they are to see you and you are lucky you still have a group of fans with the moves you have been pulling

Actually.....I been thinking about it...the crap you been pulling lately, I remember saying to myself "he is on the wrong path...and fast"....and the night I watched the news of you throwing up on stage during a concert and coming back on acting all ****y about it...and the outfits and your attitude...its all there...you don't care...where is your sweet Mom. What happened? Justin, yes, PULL over, PULL up you pants, PUT your TOY CARS away, and go home.. Your need to straighten your life out before "it" gets you, because IT will, you can't handle it. and you are being very RUDE to the people around you, and the fans. You lost it before you had it buddy!!
Back in the day..your known as what they call a "punk".
