Less than month into his “Purpose World Tour,” Justin Bieber announced he is canceling meet and greets with fans who bought certain VIP packages.
Bieber is coming to Sprint Center April 6.
“I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy,” Bieber posted on his Instagram. “Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised. Can’t tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn’t so hard on me.. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I’m in to give you the best show you have ever seen ;)”

His post set off a trending hashtag: #WeAreHereForYouJustin, because his legion of Beliebers would rather see him happy than depressed.
But what does this mean for fans who have bought the package? (Besides no more photos like these).
One Instagram account, JBCrewdotcom, has been posting updates from the tour.
At Sprint Center, the Ultimate Experience (at about $2,000 per ticket) is sold out, but the I’ll Show You experience is still available for $923. It seems only full refunds, including giving up show tickets, are available.
Also, it seems that fans might still have a chance to see Bieber, just not guaranteed for solo photos.
Here’s a little more on that security concern. It seems someone tried to get through to Bieber with a fake ID.
His mom, Pattie Mallete, is in full support of his decision.
Throughout the tour so far, Bieber has shown much love for his fans and has been interacting closely with them while he’s on stage. Check out this spontaneous hair session.
