Justin Bieber cancels the VIP meet and greets forever. This is horrific news for Beliebers hoping to meet and greet Bieber on “Purpose”.
The sad news went viral on social media, ABC News reported. The Canadian singer announced it himself on Instagram.
ABC News revealed information provided by Bkstg, the group that manages the singer’s VIP experiences. Bkstg cited a security incident as the cause for the cancellation, the website added.
Fans sent out tweets to express their reactions to the news.
MLive revealed the strange refund policy put together by Bkstg. Hence, the website noted that it’s more upsetting than the meet and greet cancellation.
MLive posted Bkstg’s refund statement:
“If you no longer want to attend the concert, please email firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours of receiving your itinerary and we’ll start the refund process. Please note that there are no partial refunds, so you would be also forfeiting your ticket in exchange for your money back.”
Therefore, fans who paid US$ 2,000 would have to give up their concert tickets as well in order to get a full refund.
MLive also revealed fan tweets in connection with the bizarre refund policy.
The “Sorry” singer was seen hitting a few golf balls on the same day that he announced a stop to the meet and greets. Mail Online noted that Bieber was likely getting rid of stress caused by his “Purpose” tour.
The singer called on his biggest fans to join him in concert two days before the “Purpose” tour kicked off in Seattle, WA.
