• Justin Bieber tested positive for COVID-19 but is already "recovering"
  • The Las Vegas show on Bieber's "Justice" world tour set for Sunday was rescheduled for June 28
  • Bieber is "hugely disappointed" but is prioritizing the "health and safety of his crew and fans," a statement says

Justin Bieber is postponing his upcoming tour date after testing positive for COVID-19.

A rep for Bieber confirmed the 27-year-old pop star's diagnosis via a statement to People.

On Saturday, it was announced that the Las Vegas show on Bieber's "Justice" world tour scheduled for Sunday had been pushed back to the summer following a COVID-19 outbreak within the singer's team.

The concert date has been rescheduled for June 28. Refunds will be made available at the point of purchase, but tickets for the original show will be honored, according to a statement posted on Twitter.

"Due to positive COVID results within the Justice Tour family, we will, unfortunately, have to postpone Sunday's show in Las Vegas," the statement read. "Justin is, of course, hugely disappointed, but the health and safety of his crew and fans [are] always his number one priority."

Bieber's manager Scooter Braun also announced on Instagram that the singer is "recovering" from COVID-19 and jokingly blamed John Terzian, who was photographed with Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin at the Super Bowl earlier this month, for the diagnosis.

"We see you, Mr. Terzian. We see you. And we fear you," Braun wrote. "In the meantime, rest up, Justin. Excited to see you back doing what you love. The first show was incredible. Love you guys."

Bieber's "Justice" world tour was originally slated to begin in March 2020. However, it was pushed back nearly two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The "Yummy" crooner kicked off the first concert Friday in San Diego, California. Las Vegas was the second stop on the tour, which runs through March 2023.

"Justin is excited to bring this spectacular show to his Las Vegas fans as soon as possible," his team added in their statement.

Bieber's six-leg world tour will visit 20 different countries in 13 months, according to his website. The first leg will end with his rescheduled performance in Las Vegas. The singer will then start the second leg in Europe, where he will visit four countries between Aug. 3 and 10.

Legs 3, 4 and 5 will feature shows in three South American countries — Brazil, Chile, and Argentina — as well as South Africa, Israel, Australia and New Zealand from September to December.

Bieber and his team will return to Europe for its sixth and final leg, which will begin on Jan. 13, 2023. He will visit 16 different countries in the continent over three months and will conclude the tour in Kraków, Poland.

Bieber announced Thursday that he will bring his "personal credo" of "Justice in Action worldwide" by raising awareness about criminal justice reform, climate action and voter registration during his tour, Billboard reported. Fans will get free concert tickets by participating in live training, and the more actions they complete, the more their chances of winning tickets.

"Justin's goal by the end of the 'Justice World Tour' is to inspire millions of individual actions, help connect his fans to important causes, and provide participating groups with a new foundation of supporters, all while registering voters and raising awareness and funds for critical local and national justice efforts," his statement read.

Jaden Smith and TEO will serve as opening acts for all 52 dates on Bieber's tour. Eddie Benjamin and Harry Hudson will join the tour on various other dates.
