Justin Bieber Reportedly Tested Positive for COVID-19 After World Tour Opening Night Opener

Justin Bieber tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday after the opening night of his already heavily delayed world tour, a rep for the singer told TMZ.

The pop star is “thankfully feeling good,” TMZ reported, but has now postponed at least one upcoming date on the Justice World Tour.

In a statement shared on the tour’s official social media account on Saturday, a spokesperson for Bieber said the singer was “extremely disappointed” that he had to postpone the show.

“Due to the positive COVID results within the Justice Tour family, we will unfortunately have to postpone Sunday’s show in Las Vegas. Justin is, of course, extremely disappointed, but the health and safety of his team and fans are still his number one priority,” the statement said, which did not specify whether the singer tested positive.

Bieber’s canceled show at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday has now been postponed to the summer, with refunds available. As of Sunday afternoon, next week’s tour stops in Glendale, Arizona and Los Angeles have yet to be rescheduled.

Bieber officially kicked off the Justice World Tour on Friday in San Diego at the Pechanga Arena, with opening acts Jaden Smith and Eddie Benjamin.

“The tour launch in San Diego was a huge success, and Justin is thrilled to bring this spectacular show to his Las Vegas fans as soon as possible,” the statement added.

The Justice World Tour was originally scheduled to begin in March 2020, but has been postponed multiple times due to the pandemic. This time around, the tour is set to span five continents and hit more than 20 countries on more than 90 dates before concluding in March 2023.

The recent cancellation is the latest misfortune to plague one of Bieber’s shows.

Earlier this month, four people, including rapper Kodak Black, were injured following a shooting outside a Bieber concert after-party in Los Angeles ahead of the Super Bowl. Prior to filming, the singer and his wife, Hailey Bieber, and other stars – including Drake Tobey Maguire and Khloe Kardashian – reportedly entered the party.

Bieber attended the Super Bowl the following day at SoFi Stadium, which required attendees to provide proof of vaccination or negative test results received within 48 hours of entering the stadium.
