Rolling Stone - Justin Bieber has postponed his 2020 Changes Tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 45-date stadium and arena trek would have been Bieber’s first live tour in nearly three years and was scheduled to kick off May 14th at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.
Not a huge surprise if you've been following any of the professional sports leagues. But still a crushing blow nonetheless, and it really couldn't come at worse timing.
Changes was Bieber's first album drop in nearly 5 years and with it came the much anticipated announcement of a 2020 summer tour.
But as ticket sales became available in later February, it was evident that Bieber Fever had a new challenger. Corona sent sales plummeting, ultimately forcing Bieber to do the unthinkable: downsize arenas in almost a dozen locations. From there it was obvious: something big needed to change or else Changes 2020 would be no more.
It's an unfortunate reality but one we're getting better at coming to grips with. It just sucks that I won't get to celebrate the end of rona in the 300 level with the rest of the boys. Getting loaded, going wild, crushing our summer jams. And while most of you think I'm joking, let there be no doubt that Justin Bieber has been the king of summer for the better part of a decade.
I don't recommend it, but if you want this smoke, come and fucking get it.
