After a member of Justin Bieber’s staff tested positive for COVID-19, the pop sensation will no longer be performing in Las Vegas on Sunday as previously scheduled.
A recent story from TMZ claims that the “Ghost” singer has tested positive for the coronavirus, but that he is otherwise well. The management of Justin Bieber did not immediately reply to a request for confirmation from the Los Angeles Times on Sunday.
We regret that we will have to postpone Sunday’s show in Las Vegas due to positive test findings among the Justice tour family,” said an announcement posted on Bieber’s Justice tour’s official Instagram page Saturday.
Although Justin is understandably frustrated, the health and safety of his staff and fans is always his top priority. This fantastic concert will be brought to his Las Vegas fans as soon as possible, and Justin is looking forward to sharing it with them.”
The Grammy winner was slated to play at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday before traveling to Glendale, Ariz., on Tuesday and singing at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Thursday night.
After being postponed until Saturday, the Las Vegas event has now been rescheduled for June 28, with refunds available for those who are unable to attend the new date.
Following its stop in Inglewood this week, the Justice tour is slated to make stops at the SAP Center in San Jose (on February 28 and March 2), the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento (on March 4), and the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles (on March 5). (March 7 and 8).
Neither Team Bieber nor Bieber’s management has commented on whether any of those dates will also need to be postponed.
It was last Sunday that the Biebs was sighted at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, for the Dr. Dre-led Super Bowl halftime concert, where attendees were required to present proof of vaccination or recent negative test results.
The cancellation of his Las Vegas show comes only months after he was nominated for eight Grammy awards, including record and song of the year for his tune “Peaches.” Coming into this year’s ceremony, which will take place on April 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the 27-year-old singer is considered one of the main prospects.
