Justin Bieber Cancels Purpose World Tour Meet & Greets After An Apparent 'Security Incident' & Feeling 'Exhausted To The Point Of Depression!'
There are a LOT of disappointed Beliebers out there right now.
On Tuesday, Justin Bieber announced that he's canceling his meet and greets for his Purpose World Tour. Bkstg, the company in charge of the pop powerhouse's backstage experiences, explained that this perk has been removed from the $925 I'll Show You package for security reasons.
The business explained in an FAQ:
"During a recent show, there was a security incident that caused our team to have to meet and re-think how meet and greets were handled. This is a new tour with new venues almost every night and still a changing process, but we have decided that for the time being this is our best course of action. We are letting everyone affected know, are offering refunds, and are also offering the alternative of a VIP hangout where both pics and videos can be taken of Justin, just no longer a group picture with him."
However, if fans want to be refunded, they WILL lose their tickets to the show. Bkstg added:
"Please note there are no partial refunds, so you would also be forfeiting your ticket in exchange for your money back."
Well, THAT certainly doesn't seem fair. It also isn't clear if those $2,000 selfies with the Biebs for the Ultimate Purpose Experience will be affected.
While we don't know the details about the apparent security scare, the soulful singer has taken to Instagram to address the personal reason why he won't be meeting his fans.
He shared a sweet snap of himself with a young fun, but interestingly enough didn't say anything about safety concerns.
Instead, he said that meet and greets left him "drained," explaining:
