Justin Bieber disappointed fans in Norway on Thursday night when he walked off the stage during a concert after performing only one song. He did not return.
According to reports, he started by playing “Boyfriend” from his 2012 album Believe, but then tried to wipe the stage down during songs.

After the show, he posted an apology on Instagram, explaining, “Sadly it’s Been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be ‘on’ as they would say for cameras fans etc.” He said he “chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen.” Read his whole note:
Sadly it’s Been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be “on” as they would say for cameras fans etc. In no way did I mean to come across mean, but chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen. Hopefully people will understand where I am coming from. I don’t always handle things the right way but I’m human and I’m working on getting better at responding not reacting. Unfortunately people were affected by this as am I. For the people in the back I am so sorry and for anyone I may have disappointed im sorry. Sorry for wasting the tv people’s time I’ll be sure to make it up to you next time on tour.. With love Justin.
Bieber’s next studio album, Purpose, is due out Nov. 13 and features singles, “Where Are U Now,” “What Do You Mean,” and “Sorry.”
