Weekly after Justin Bieber canceled the remaining times of his Goal World Tour, his musical peers are sounding off on the abrupt move.
The most recent musician to comment is Louis Tomlinson, who distributed his thoughts in an interview with 92.3 AMP Radio.
“Obviously, you have to be in a good position mentally,” Tomlinson said, when asked about “the right move to make” in Bieber’s position. “But I also think, to a certain degree, when you’re registering to something, you should see it through.”
Bieber kicked off the Purpose World Tour way back in March 2016 and performed 154 shows before axing the remaining 15 dates last week. Tomlinson is not a stranger to lengthy, grueling world travels himself, but the former One Direction singer pressured that committing to his supporters is his priority.
“There’s never enough that I could say or do for the supporters, and I honestly think people can forget that,” Tomlinson said. “At the end of the day, it’s the individuals who are buying the information that are placing you what your location is.”
Besides Tomlinson, John Mayer in addition has spoken out about Bieber’s travel cancellation. He defended the pop celebrity on Twitter last week, writing, “When someone pulls remaining dates of your tour, it means they would have done real harm to themselves if they kept heading. We’ve lost so many great music artists lately. I give Justin [thumbs up] for recognizing it was time for you to call it. You should too.”
The bottom collection — in both Tomlinson and Mayer’s eyes — is apparently this: Bieber must take care of himself before they can be his best self applied onstage. Here’s expecting he’s on the upswing
