Performing with a Purpose: Justin Bieber extends world tour

Global superstar Justin Bieber is not stopping any time soon. After spending 2016 on the road for his Purpose world tour, the pop sensation has announced he will continue to perform for fans through most of 2017 as well, ending the tour with his first-ever string of stadium gigs across North America. 

Bieber made the announcement to fans that he will visit some of the biggest stadiums in the world during a visit to the Ellen Degeneres show Monday.

Having already performed over 100 shows during the first European and North American legs of the tour, the Grammy winner will continue taking the world by storm when the Purpose tour resumes in February for the South American and Australian legs. Bieber will conclude his travels at the Rogers Centre in his native Canada in September 2017. For now, he continues to stay busy and is among the featured performers on the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour.

Purpose is the fourth studio album for the young heartthrob and was a much-needed comeback effort following a string of legal troubles that led to a tainted public image in recent years. Bieber bounced back in a big way with the album–it shot to the top of the charts in several countries and was certified multi-Platinum after its release last November. The album was fueled by the success of singles “Where Are U Now?” (for which he won a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording), “What Do You Mean?” “Sorry,” and “Love Yourself.” Bieber became just the third recording artist in history to have three singles simultaneously chart within the Billboard Hot 100’s Top five, which he achieved with “What Do You Mean?” “Sorry,” and “Love Yourself.” Each of the tunes peaked at no. 1 on the chart.

As if that wasn’t enough success for one year, the 22-year-old had two more instant earworms as the featured artist on EDM tracks “Cold Water” (with Major Lazer and MØ) and “Let Me Love You” (with DJ Snake), both of which reached no. 1 in various countries.

Tickets for Justin Bieber’s Purpose world tour are available for pre-sale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday.
