Justin Bieber Positive for COVID-19, World Tour Date Postponed
Justin Bieber is the latest public figure to announce positive COVID-19 test results.
A rep of Bieber's announced his February 20 show in Las Vegas has been rescheduled for June 28. "Due to positive COVID results within the Justice Tour family, we will, unfortunately, have to postpone Sunday's show in Las Vegas. Justin is, of course, hugely disappointed, but the health and safety of his crew and fans is always his number one priority."
Bieber's Justice world tour had already been put off almost two years due to COVID, finally launching Friday in San Diego. The Vegas show would have been only the second one of the tour.
The six-leg jaunt is set to bring Bieber — plus openers TEO and Jaden Smith — to 20 countries over the course of the next 13 months.
Bieber's manager Scooter Braun poked fun at the situation by bringing attention to H.Wood Group co-founder John Terzian. He wrote on Instagram, "As many of you know from my past posts this man @johnterzian gave me Covid in December. While it was confirmed today that my dear friend @justinbieber is recovering from Covid and has to move his show in vegas to June I couldn’t help but notice a strange coincidence."
Braun also included a series of photos, including one of John in the same suite as Justin at the Super Bowl.
"Just a week ago Justin and his beautiful wife and friends attended the super bowl as seen in slide 3. But as you can see in slide 4, 5, and 6… dare I say it… has he struck again?" Braun added. "I’m not saying MR. Terzian gave Justin Covid… I’m just saying there are multiple variants which gives him multiple ways to strike. Was he upset that Delilah Las Vegas didn’t have an official after party and wanted another bite at the apple? We just don’t know. We might never know. But am I haunted by these strange facts? Will I lose sleep for many nights in the months to come? Absolutely. We see you MR. Terzian. We see you. And we fear you. In the meantime rest up Justin. Excited to see you back doing what you love. The first show was incredible. Love you guys. 😁 👀.”
During the Super Bowl weekend, Bieber also performed at "HOMECOMING WEEKEND" hosted by The h.wood Group & REVOLVE. His performance brought out big name stars, like Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Kendall Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, and Jason Derulo.
