On the heels of the nearly universal shower of praise that his fourth major release, Purpose, has received this fall, Justin Bieber has announced plans for his Purpose World Tour, set to kick off on March 9, 2016, in Seattle, Washington.

The 58-date tour features two-night events in Brooklyn (Barclays Center), Los Angeles (STAPLES Center), Chicago (Allstate Arena) and Toronto (Air Canada Centre).

As he continues to take his already considerably unprecedented career to new heights with efforts like the immediate smash “What Do You Mean,” which was crowned Bieber’s first No. 1 on Billboard’s all-format airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot 100 the week of its release, he is also undertaking a heavy image revamp after a tumultuous past few years in the spotlight. The redemption motif is very prevalent in his recent public appearances and throughout the course of the new album, and will almost certainly carry over into live performance. Justin knows it’s never too late to say sorry, and he’s more than determined to take full advantage of the chance to do so in a way that only he ever could.

The Purpose World Tour comes to Houston on Saturday, April 9, 2016.
