Singer Justin Bieber has postponed his upcoming Las Vegas show after a COVID-19 outburst among his team, his tour representatives tweeted on Sunday.
“Due to a covid outbreak within the team, the Justin Bieber Justice World Tour show scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been moved to June 28, 2022,” they wrote.
“Justin is obviously hugely disappointed, but the health and safety of his crew and fans is always his first priority,” the statement read. “The launch of the tour in San Diego was a huge success and Justin is excited to bring this spectacular show to his Las Vegas fans as soon as possible.”
According to TMZ, Bieber also tested positive for the virus. He reportedly found out about it on Saturday and is okay, according to the business.
Tour representatives also said refunds are being issued for the Las Vegas show.
Bieber is scheduled to perform Tuesday in Glendale, Arizona, and then Los Angeles on Thursday. There is nothing to say about those concerts being postponed as well.
The artist is not the only one who has had to cancel a performance due to COVID-19.
Less than 24 hours after Adele’s stay in Las Vegas began in January, she announced that it would be postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19 delays and increased cases among the crew.
“I’m so sorry, but my show is not ready,” Adele said in a tearful social media post. “We have tried everything we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you, but we have been completely ruined by delivery delays and COVID.”
“Half of my crew, half of my team have come down with COVID and still are, and it’s been impossible to end the show and I can not give you what I have right now,” Adele continued, 33. “I’m broken, I’m broken, and I’m sorry it’s so last minute.”
