The day after the premiere of his “Justice” world tour in San Diego, California, singer Justin Bieber contracted COVID-19.
Thus, the show, scheduled for Sunday night in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been canceled and will be pushed back to a later date during the summer, the musician’s entourage said.
“Due to a positive case on the touring squad, we unfortunately have to postpone the concert scheduled for Sunday in Las Vegas. Justin is deeply disappointed, but the health and safety of his team and his fans is a priority,” a Justin Bieber spokesperson said on Saturday.
As reported by TMZ, the Canadian singer learned on Saturday that he tested positive for the coronavirus and was fine.
According to the spokesperson, the premiere in a series of 52 shows was a huge success.
It is not known at this time if Justin Bieber will have to postpone further concerts. A concert is scheduled for Tuesday in Glendale, Arizona, and another concert in Los Angeles on Thursday.
The “Justice” tour is scheduled to stop at the Bell Center on March 29. There are also stops in Toronto (March 25) and Ottawa (March 27).
