Justin Bieber is still trying to decide whether he should move forward with his “Changes” tour. The tour is set to kick off on May 14, and as recently as March 11, the singer was posting videos to Instagram of rehearsals for the tour.
A source close to the singer told Hollywood Life that the decision about canceling the tour is still weighing heavily on him. He doesn’t want to disappoint his fans, but he’s also concerned about their safety.
“The last thing he wants to do is let his fans down. Justin knows his fans have purchased tickets, are looking forward to the shows, he’s been rehearsing, and the last thing he would want to do is cancel the tour or any of the shows,” the source said.
“Justin also has a responsibility to take everything into consideration and it’s a very serious pandemic going on right now. His health and safety, plus that of his entire crew, and the audience is the number one priority.”
The source continued by saying that the “Yummy” singer has decided to take news as it comes. “Justin isn’t taking any risks at this point and will do what is necessary to ensure the safety of everyone involved,” the source said. “But he’s remaining very hopeful and hasn’t canceled anything at this point. For now, Justin is taking things day by day.”
The source also made it clear that, while Bieber is happy in his own life, he’s concerned about everyone’s health and safety.
“Justin is happy, upbeat and in good spirits but things aren’t business as usual in his life or anyone’s for that matter right now so he will continue to monitor everything when it comes to his career and upcoming tour,” the source said.
“He knows that some spots might have to be cancelled or postponed and right now he is taking it minute by minute and case by case. His people are keeping him up on everything and he will act appropriately when needed.”
The source said that if Bieber has the option to tour, that’s what he’ll do. “If he can go out, he will,” the source explained. “If cities and venues tell him he can’t, then he will abide by everything that is brought to him. It is touch and go right now but he is hoping for the best. He is around people he loves and who loves him so he is going to ride it out and see what happens.”
