Bieber Cancels Concert in Portugal

Justin Bieber Cancels Concert In Portugal
Bieber Cancels Concert in Portugal, Justin Bieber has cancelled one of two concerts scheduled for this week in Portugal.

It was not immediately clear whether the cancellation was linked to his collapse on-stage in London last week, which forced the teen sensation to take a 20-minute break to receive oxygen and then to stay overnight in hospital.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber was forced to cancel the second performance in Portugal on March 12th," a statement said on the website of the Pavilhao Atlantico.

"The Canadian singer is eager to play for the Portuguese fans on March 11," it added.

It said ticket holders for the cancelled gig were entitled to a refund if they claim it within a month.

His US-based representatives were not immediately available for comment.

Bieber described his visit to London as a "rough week".

As well as the collapse, the 19-year-old was caught on film in an expletive-filled altercation with a photographer, showed up nearly two hours late for a show leading to widespread anger and was labelled a "pop brat" by a tabloid newspaper.

Discovered on YouTube in 2008, Bieber has built an online following of tens of millions of fans and is one of the pop world's biggest stars.

In February, he became the youngest artist to land five chart-topping albums in the key US market.
