Justin Drew Bieber is a Canadian singer and songwriter. After a talent manager discovered him through his YouTube videos covering songs in 2008 and signed to RBMG, Bieber released his debut EP, My World, in late 2009. It was certified Platinum in the U.S. He became the first artist to have seven songs from a debut record chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Bieber released his first full-length studio album, My World 2.0, in 2010. It debuted at or near number one in several countries, was certified triple Platinum in the U.S., and contained his single "Baby".
Following his debut album, he had his first headlining tour, the My World Tour. He released his second studio album, Under the Mistletoe, in November 2011, when it debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Bieber released his third studio album, Believe, in 2012. His fourth studio album Purpose was released in November 2015, spawning three number one singles: "What Do You Mean?", "Sorry", and "Love Yourself". He has sold an estimated 100 million records, making him one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
Bieber initially began singing with his adolescent voice, before later experiencing pubertal changes during a performance of "Pray" at the 2011 American Music Awards. Bieber started to receive vocal conditioning from coach Jan Smith. Sean Michaels of The Guardian described it as "the biggest threat to his career" at the time. Jody Rosen commented that Bieber sings with "swing and rhythmic dexterity" on his debut, noting his tone to be "nasal". The Believe Tour was the second concert tour by Canadian singer Justin Bieber. It was launched in support of his third studio album, Believe (2012).
The Purpose World Tour is the third worldwide tour by Canadian singer Justin Bieber. It was in support of his fourth studio album Purpose (2015). The tour started on March 9, 2016 in Seattle and ended on July 2, 2017 in London, England. The tour was announced on November 11, 2015 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. That same day, 58 dates in the United States and Canada were revealed on the singer's website. Due to overwhelming demand, additional shows were added in several cities.

Sorry, Beliebers. Justin Bieber has canceled the remaining dates of his Purpose Tour "due to unforeseen circumstances." "Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them," a statement read on Bieber's official Facebook page. "He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over [the] last 18 months." The canceled stops will begin with Saturday's show in Arlington, Texas. Tickets will be refunded.
Shortly after announcing his tour cancellation, Bieber was spotted near Santa Monica beach by TMZ. He told the outlet he plans on "just resting, getting some relaxation. We're gonna ride some bikes." Bieber also had a message for his fans. "I love you guys," he said. "I think you guys are awesome. Sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed. It's not my heart or anything."
Bieber was banned from performing in China for "bad behaviors." His series of misbehaviors while living abroad and during his performances in China has caused public resentment," the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture said in a statement. "To regulate the domestic entertainment market and purify its environment, we find it inappropriate to bring in performers with bad behaviors.
