Justin Bieber walked off the stage during a Purpose concert in Manchester, England after asking fans to stop screaming in between songs.

“I appreciate all the support, I appreciate love, I appreciate the kind things,” Bieber said during Sunday night’s show. “But the screaming in these breaks has got to stop. Please and thank you. I don’t think it’s necessary when I’m trying to say something and you guys are screaming.”

Bieber then dropped the mic and walked off stage.

He later came back and said, “So the reason why I got upset is because I travelled across the whole world to come here and I dedicated my life to this. I dedicated my life to performing, I dedicate my life to bringing smiles to people’s faces, and I feel like people just aren’t giving me the same respect back, and courtesy. That’s all.”

Bieber has expressed a version of this sentiment at his last three shows in the U.K. while on the Purpose tour. During his first Manchester show, he asked fans to “try and stay as quiet as possible,” and during a Birmingham concert, he said, “Can you guys just relax for like two seconds?”
