Justin Bieber has just cancelled a concert in England, which was to be his first show in the UK in two years, and is already anticipating that the British press will “tear me apart.” On Tuesday, Bieber shared the news with his fans that he will be “unable to perform at the Fusion Festival” in Birmingham on August 28, as had been scheduled.

Bieber tweeted, “To all my UK beliebers… Due to an unforeseen issue I will be unable to perform at the Fusion Festival on August 28th. I support the Prince’s Trust wholeheartedly and I am deeply disappointed I won’t be able to perform. I look forward to the opportunity to give my UK beliebers a great show in the near future, and hope to honor my commitment to the Trust at that time.”

The singing star added in subsequent tweets that he wanted to “thank the prince’s trust for their understanding and I don’t take moving any show lightly. I will see u soon UK.” And to the British media, Bieber tweeted, “And now the Uk press will start to tear me apart. Comes with the job. Love u guys regardless and I will make this up to you.”

As Gossip Cop noted, Bieber’s slated show was going to be his first concert in the UK since he last performed there during his “Believe” tour in 2013. The Biebs was supposed to be the headliner on the opening night of the three-day festival. At the time it was announced he was going to perform at the Fusion Festival, Bieber said in a statement, “I love the UK and I’m excited to be playing at Fusion this year… There are some great artists on the line-up so to be headlining the Friday night, is a real honor.”

What do you think the chances are of the British media not tearing Bieber apart for canceling?
