Justin Bieber has cancelled the remaining dates on his Purpose World Tour, the pop star announced on Monday. No reason was given for the decision beyond “unforeseen circumstances.”

Bieber had 15 more shows scheduled in the U.S., Canada, Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia through October. He has played more than 150 shows since the stadium tour began in March 2016.

Tickets for the upcoming shows will be refunded.

Bieber’s 29 shows in 26 cities in the first half of 2017 earned more than $93 million. Combined with the shows Bieber performed in 2016, the “Purpose” tour, launched in support of the pop star’s most recent album of the same name, has earned over $250 million.

The news comes about a week after the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture released a statement saying that the singer had been barred from performing in China because of past instances of “bad behavior” in the country and elsewhere.

Read the full statement below:

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts.  Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them. He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over last 18 months. He is grateful and honored to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across 6 continents during this run. However, after careful consideration he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
