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.

the real diva    

he is on his way to becoming a has been.
girls are growing up, finding new celebs to follow.
his career is nearly over. he was just a phase, the girls were going through.
he has done nothing to help his career. as he has no real talent. so in 5 yrs people will be saying "whatever happened to Justin Bieber? but by then noone will care.
he will be on drugs on the streets of Toronto. living in the past of his former glory.

Your sources are fake. He cancelled because of other reasons. Read gossipcp's article on it. And dont report fake news please.

I said this very thing in another post. It was poor ticket sales, and those poor ticket sales relate DIRECTLY to his poor choice of friends, poor choice of life decisions (i.e. drug use) and his ridiculous spending habits (no matter if he made the money or not, he's still JUST 19). And before he hits 21, he'll be a has been, unless someone steps in and cleans his house of all the hanger ons...
