Justin Bieber canceled his Portugal concert because ticket sales were too low, a new report claimed on Monday, March 11.
According to TMZ, sources close to Justin confirmed that Tuesday's Portugal gig was indeed called off due to a moderate amount of unsold seats. The insiders claimed that while tickets were just over 60% sold, that number was just not good enough to hold the concert.
However, as TMZ pointed out, for a star of Justin's popularity level this is not common practice. Cancellations for low ticket sales are usually reserved for lesser known artists.
Meanwhile, some suggested that Justin's decision to bail on his Portuguese fans was due to his recent medical problems during a couple of concerts in England. After fainting due to a lack of oxygen in London's O2 arena, Justin was rushed to the hospital for further treatment.
But, Justin's rep did not reveal the real reason the concert is being canceled when he made a statement on E! News and his Portugal promoter did not offer any reasons either.
"Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber was forced to cancel the second operation, in Portugal, on 12 March," the promoter, Everything is New, posted on their website, "The Canadian singer is eager t play for the Portuguese fans on 11 March."
Evidently, there will be another concert in Portugal on Monday night, which will go on as planned.
