Sorry guys, but it looks like Justin Bieber had to unfortunately downsize some dates on his highly anticipated Changes Tour after slow ticket sales. On Friday, March 6, fans noticed that eight US arenas took to Twitter and posted similar statements that the stadium shows were being relocated “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

Although there was no official announcement from the singer or his team, the venue changes were posted on Justin’s website under the “tour dates” section. Sources have said that the “Yummy” singer and his management team made this “hard decision” to downgrade shows in some of the smaller markets so they didn’t lose money on the 45-date tour.
This decision came just days after the mayor of Austin, Texas, announced that music festival South by Southwest had been canceled due to fear of spreading the coronavirus. Although the sickness has caused some fear among concertgoers, Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino reported that ticket sales were up 10% for January and February of 2020.
As fans know, Justin announced the Changes tour on December 24, 2019, just two months before he dropped his latest album on February 14, 2020. These upcoming shows mark the first time that the 26-year-old has taken the stage to tour in nearly three years. The venue changes included moving his June 27, 2020 show at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, to the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas on June 28, 2020; the July 2, 2020 show at NRG Stadium show was moved to Houston’s Toyota Center on June 27, 2020; the August 14, 2020 show at Cleveland’s FirstEnergy Stadium was moved to Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana; an August 21, 2020 show at FedEx Field outside of Washington, D.C., was moved to the city’s Capitol One Arena; an August 20, 2020 show at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan moving to Little Caesars Arena on August 30, 2020. Shows in Nashville, Tennessee, Columbus, Ohio and Glendale, Arizona also suffered venue downgrades.
