Justin Bieber Cancelled Concert Because of Empty Seats

Breaking News 0308_justin_bieber_arena_01
Justin Bieber cancelled his Portugal concert Tuesday — not because he”s sick, not because he”s melting down — because ticket sales were “soft” and it felt like the right thing to do. Just tell that to the fans who are getting stood up.

$(function() $(“#poll-418-00cfa66b3d69608fdf2d153f991c32d3 div form ul li”) .children() .not($(“div.styledRadio”)) .filter(“input:radio”) .screwDefaultButtons( checked: “url(http://ll-assets.tmz.com/www.tmz.com/default/cache/images/radio_Checked.v2012_12_20_074412.gif)”, unchecked: “url(http://ll-assets.tmz.com/www.tmz.com/default/cache/images/radio_Unchecked.v2012_12_20_074412.gif)”, width: 20, height: 20, pollid: “418-00cfa66b3d69608fdf2d153f991c32d3”, ); });

It”s pretty common for lesser artists to bail when sales are bad, but unusual for signer”s on Justin”s level.
