It’s no surprise, but Justin Bieber’s “CHanges” tour, which then became his “Justice” tour, is moving again.
The tour was supposed to begin at the Gila Arena in Arizona on June 5th, but sources tell me that by next week the whole thing should be rescheduled to March 2022.
This was a tour that was supposed to start a year ago and was cancelled before the pandemic because tickets simply were not selling. Then the pandemic gave promoter AEGLive an excuse to scuttle the whole thing.
Even before the 2020 cancellation, many dates had been downsized to smaller venues. But the tickets still didn’t move.
Tickets for this 2021 version also were not selling despite Bieber having hits on the radio, on iTunes, and a whole new album, “Justice.” But as I reported earlier, “Justice” hasn’t sold very well at all. Bieber has had a big hit off it called “Peaches” that depended on two other artists — Giveon and Daniel Caesar. It’s almost like Justin is a guest on his own record.
But while the “Peaches” were sweet, there was no Justice. A source tells me that Bieber’s management has done nothing to promote the 2021 dates. And so, the whole thing will move again.
Usually a tour is tied to an album release and in this case, there was one each time a tour was announced. Can Bieber possibly have a new album next winter? (And would anyone want to hear more of his monotonous singing?) Beats me.
Fans will get an announcement next week, I’m told. But they must have a clue. So far there’s been no talk of rehearsals or any sign of a tour coming together that launches in five weeks.
