It was only a matter of time...Justin Bieber is going on tour!
The "Love Yourself" crooner announced the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday. Of course, when the host asked him when the world tour will begin, the 21-year-old couldn't recall.
"This was the only thing I had to remember, and I can't remember," he said. Fortunately, a lower-third graphic informed audience members and home viewers that the Purpose World Tour kicks off March 9, 2016, with tickets going on sale next week. The Biebs' big announcement came on the heels of his consistent drop of new music in recent weeks, including "What Do You Mean?", "The Feeling" and "I'll Show You," off his new album.
The timing, however, is very interesting. Let's recall that he and One Direction have been in a bit of a feud ever since the boy band announced its new album, Made in the A.M., would be released the same day as Bieber's on Nov. 13. There have been snarky Snapchats and comments made from both sides, but it seemed to have settled in recent days—perhaps until now.
