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.

Is anyone else thinking that if Justin hadn't kept like a tiger cub at that paparazzi guy in London we wud have been sold the 'he's too ill' bs... Nobody think that the PR team were crafting this strategy as the potential excuse? Oh Justin, stop Treating your believers like complete brain dead morons, I know they act like mini bunny boilers that can't see the wood from the trees but really, come on, show em a little respect for their devotion. I get why his team are saying he's being 'difficult' dude just isn't helping them craft into his bs anymore. He lost me when asa 19 yr old man he grabbed a young fans tit. Way to show respect for young women. But I'm guessing his followers don't have any self respect or intelligence either.

I'm from Portugal and so that you know, i knew lots and lots of people that were going to the concert today (12th March). It was not a matter of selling tickets but yes of the syndicates and the equipment. His concert was sold out yesterday and it was PERFECT. Not a single flaw (no delays, pass outs, misbehaves, ...)
