Say it ain't so!
Justin Bieber's highly anticipated Justice Tour has been postponed after the "Baby" singer and members of his team tested positive for COVID-19.
The Grammy winner had been set to perform at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 20, but the the pop star popped positive on Saturday, February 19, forcing him to reschedule the show to several months later on June 28, 2022.
"Due to positive COVID results within the Justice Tour family, we will, unfortunately, have to postpone Sunday's show in Las Vegas," a statement from the tour's official Twitter read. "Justin is, of course, hugely disappointed, but the health and safety of his crew and fans is always his number one priority."
This was only the "Love Yourself" artist's second stop on the tour which is currently set to run through March 2023. The first concert was on Friday night, February 18, in San Diego, California.
"The tour launch in San Diego was a massive success and Justin is excited to bring this spectacular show to his Las Vegas fans as soon as possible," the statement continued, concluding with information for fans and how to exchange or refund their tickets.
Bieber's next scheduled stops included shows in Glendale, Ariz., Los Angeles, Calif. and Tacoma, Wash. but it is now assumed that most of the dates will be bumped to a later time to allow Bieber and his crew the chance to rest and quarantine according to CDC guidelines.
The 27-year-old pop star can't seem to catch a break. As OK! previously reported, four people were injured in a shooting that took place outside of Bieber's L.A. afterparty on Saturday, February 12.
Following a performance at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, Bieber moved the celebration to The Nice Guy restaurant with a group of A-Lister guests such as Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Drake, Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Around 3 A.M. a fight reportedly broke out outside of the venue between rapper Kodak Black and an unknown individual resulting in ten gunshots being fired. L.A.P.D later confirmed the "Super Gremlin" rapper had been one of the four injured, but that all were in stable condition.
