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 truth is he won't fade. He's lasted far longer than any other with the bubble gum image purely because his 'handlers' saw what a good bank he could be. His PR team will rise above. He has the money and the minions to unfortunately continue to be around for the rest of our lives.

More crap for the Bieber bullies on this site. the concert was sold out according to the person who should know, his manager scooter who called the report bull****. Check him out for a full explanation and not unknown sources. The efforts to destroy this kids reputation and career continues.

Bieber is a spoiled rotten little punk. He has been overrated from the start and, hopefully, now the ego maniac is about to fall.

He was booked at the Atlantico Pavillion in Lisbon for two days 11th & 12th


His next show is scheduled for the 14th in Bilboa Spain. 850 Km. Do the show, don't fcuk around after the show. Take down and get the hell out of Dodge.


It's a tight schedule but definetly do-able. I don't buy this union conflict. Unless the problem is his road crew crying and grumbling which I doubt if it's an american crew (sound & lighting).


The Atlantico Pavillion's next show is scheduled for Mar. 22. So the load-out is not the issue.


Gotta be ticket sales.

Teeny boy idols have a short shelf life. He better watch his back with the hundreds of thousands he's letting his posse destroy for him in crashed cars and bad publicity.

Turn around, Leif Garrett's life is your future, wannabe thugboy

He's such creepy, untalented little twerp. He reminds me of those city white boys who try so hard to be a black kind of cool and look like stupid white boy wannabes. Never a good look.

OH BULLSCHIT with the "union" excuse and taking down the stage and crap, Michael Jackson had WAY more stage props and etc and more grueling work schedule as many other TALENTED artists. They aren't going to admit to low sales wake up!
