The tickets range from $148 for restricted view seats to $1,898 for the most expensive VIP package.

The Canadian star had earlier announced that he has canned the remainder of his Purpose World Tour due to "unforeseen circumstances".

 

Besides Singapore, the tour would have also included shows in the United States, Japan, Hong Kong and Canada.

Bieber's social media and press statements pointed out that he has performed in "150 successful shows across 6 continents" in the "last 18 months".

He last played in Singapore in 2013 as part of the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix.
