Justin Bieber has revealed that he will not be taking his Purpose Tour to Argentina as the South American country's government has banned him from doing so. The All That Matters' singer in a series of tweets has apologised to his loyal fans in Argentina and said "if things were to change I would love to come".
The 22-year-old singer wrote on Twitter: "If things were to change I would love to come but at this time I cannot. For everyone else in South America I look forward to seeing you." "Argentina I do love you. It is in fact one of my favorite places to tour. I wish this was not the case. My lawyers say it is what it is."
"Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but until the legal conditions change there I can't. Sorry Argentina," the singer said, adding, "I love you."
Bieber has had a few run-ins with the country's law since performing his last concert in Bueno Aires in 2013. Bieber during the same concert was accused of disrespected the country's flag when he kicked it off stage. The singer was unaware that the object was the country's national flag and later had offered a formal apology.
In the same year, the singer had landed in trouble after his bodyguard assaulted a photographer. He was summoned to testify about the incident but when he did not show up an arrest warrant was issued in 2014. The arrest warrant has been revoked, but charges against him were still pending. Moreover, on 6 May, the singer unknowingly threw a tiny Argentinean flag outside his car window in New York City after a young fan had chucked it at him. The singer had asked the fan: "Why would you do that?"
