Each meet-and-greet costs $2,000, so it’s not small change. Fans who have purchased the opportunity (a.k.a. an “I’ll Show You” VIP package) will not be refunded unless they also forego their ticket to the show; there will be no partial refunds.

The singer announced the cancellations on Instagram.

Love u guys.. I'm going to be canceling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people's spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.. Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression .. The pressure of meeting people's expectations of what I'm supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders. Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised. Can't tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn't so hard on me.. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I'm in to give you the best show you have ever seen ;)

Bieber’s management team sang another tune, citing a “security incident” at one of the meet-and-greets.
