Bieber fever was supposed to hit the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire on Sept. 1. But a different kind of fever has taken down star Justin Bieber.
It was announced in a statement today that, due to illness and under doctor’s orders, the Justin Bieber show at Verizon Wireless Arena had to be rescheduled to accommodate a missed performance at the NY State Fair on August 29 which was re-scheduled to Wednesday, September 1st, at 7 pm.
As a result, promoters for Justin Bieber have had to reschedule the Verizon Wireless Arena show in Manchester to Thursday, December 9th in order to accommodate the rescheduled NYS Fair show.
All tickets issued for Wednesday’s show will be honored for the new date on Thursday, December 9th.
Any ticket that cannot be used should be returned to the point of purchase for a refund prior to the reschedule performance on December 9th. The Verizon Wireless Arena Box Office will begin processing refunds at 10am on August 30th should one be necessary.
Promoters have confirmed all other tour dates will remain as scheduled.
Justin Bieber said on Saturday, “I do not cancel my shows. I know how much my fans count on me, and I want them to know I care. The doctor won't allow me to perform tomorrow, but we have worked very hard to reschedule the show, and I will see those fans soon. I don't want to let anyone down. Without my fans, I can't live my dream, and I will never take that for granted. I pray for understanding in this tough time, and I will work hard to get better. Doc says I need to rest but canceling shows sucks! Thanks,” Justin
“If it was up to Justin we would never cancel any show or reschedule. Unfortunately this time the doctor has made the call and his body needs rest as to not do any real damage in the long run. Sometimes we forget he is a 16 year old boy and I hope all the parents and kids out there have an understanding that the health of a child is our #1 priority. We have worked hard to already reschedule the shows and we will see those fans soon. Thank you once again for your understanding. Our apologies,” said Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun.
