Justin Bieber’s Stadium Tour Downgraded To Arenas, Reportedly Because Of Coronavirus

Justin Bieber’s upcoming stadium tour in support of his new album Changes is being downgraded to arenas. His stadium shows in Cleveland, Detroit, Arlington, Columbus, and Nashville have all been cancelled and moved to local arenas instead, effectively cutting seat capacity in half.

TMZ claims that the decision was made as a result of the coronavirus scare. Concerns over COVID-19 skyrocketed a few days after the tour was announced and ticket sales reportedly slowed in secondary markets.

Sources close to the pop star say his team decided to relocate the tour stops affected in order to guarantee that they could fill the available seats. Bieber may also end up performing multiple shows at one arena.
