Justin Bieber cancels his concert in Portugal, just days after the Canadian pop singer was hospitalized in London and later attacked a photographer. Bieber was supposed to have a two-day show at Pavilhao Atlantico in Lisbon, March 11, 2013 (Monday) and March 12 (Tuesday), as part of his “Believe” concert tour.

According to a statement released by Portuguese concert promoter Everything Is New this Saturday, March 9, the Justin Bieber concert on March 12 (the second night) has been canceled, citing “unforeseen circumstances.” A refund will be made to Bieber fans who bought tickets for the concert.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber was forced to cancel the second operation, in Portugal, on 12 March. The Canadian singer is eager to play for the Portuguese fans on 11 March.” A statement reads on EverythingIsNew.pt, as translated in English via Google Translate.
“Holders of valid tickets for March 12 should head to its place of purchase to receive a refund within 30 days from the date of the concert, which ends April 11.” The statement added, without further explaining details of the so-called unforeseen circumstances. However, a report suggests that there was slow ticket sales.
“A national newspaper had said that, while the first date was sold out, ticket sales had been suspended for the second night due to insufficient demand.” A statement reads of the Facebook page of Portugal News, but did not mention the name of the newspaper so the report cannot be confirmed.
So far, the 19-year old “Boyfriend” singer is believed to be back on his good health after he passed out during his show at O2 Arena in London. The Justin Bieber Believe concert tour’s next stop will be in Spain later this week, and will be followed by shows in other parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America.
