It was a tragic day for Beliebers yesterday (July 24) when Justin Bieber announced that he was cancelling the rest of his tour, with 14 shows left across North America, and Asia.

Countries like Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Phillipines, and Indonesia are among those affected.

His stop in Singapore, which was part of his Asia Purpose World Tour, was scheduled for Oct 7 at the National Stadium. Tickets were priced at $298, $258 and $228 (standing) and $258, $228, $188, $148 (seated). 

Despite the statement released by his tour publicist, little has been done to quell the speculation surrounding the reason as to why Bieber would cancel the rest of his tour.

Among rumours that Bieber, 23, was simply "just over it", there have also been rumours that Bieber is intending to reconnect with his Christian faith and perhaps even set up his own church.

The cancellation comes a few days after the singer was banned from performing in China due to bad behaviour - but the Beijing state office did not specify what behaviour was offensive.

After the sudden announcement, social media platforms have been bursting with responses to the unexpected move as fans filled up Bieber's instagram posts with comments and others took to Twitter to express their opinions.

Some fans were understandably angry.

Of course, there also were the die-hard fans who would stick with him through thick and thin.

What it is important for everyone to realise however, is that love him or hate him, it isn't easy for anyone to tour for 2 years and cover 150 shows without having a mental and physical toll on your body.

In a recent video interview with TMZ however, Bieber confirmed that he is indeed feeling burnt out, stating that he needed to go back to "resting and getting some relaxation".

In the video, Bieber is filmed in grey slacks and white sneakers. "I love you guys, I think you guys are awesome," he said when asked if he had any words for his fans.

"I'm sorry for anyone who feels, like, disappointed or betrayed, it's not in my heart or anything and have a blessed day."
