Bieber is now on his Purpose World Tour, in support of his 2015 album of the same name. Instead, he'll perform in Japan, the Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia.

Although Bieber's site shows no dates in China, a Chinese ticket agency is still selling tickets for a September 16 in Beijing and September 23 in Shanghai, but will be offering full refunds in the event of cancellations. When in 2013, Justin Bieber raised his eyebrows after he was captured being carried up by his bodyguards to The Great Wall Of China.
