Andrew Lipovsky/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty ImagesJustin Bieber had been preparing for his comeback Changes tour for months before having to postpone the trek due to COVID-19. Sources tell People that while having to reschedule the tour didn’t come as a shock to Justin, he’s still “very disappointed.”

“Justin wants to do a safe tour so everyone, including his fans, can feel comfortable being in a large crowd again,” the source says. “If this isn’t possible until next year, Justin will accept that.”

On Wednesday, Justin announced in a tweet that the 45-show tour -- originally scheduled to kick off May 14 in Seattle -- would have to be postponed.

“The health and safety of my fans, team, cast and crew is the most important thing for me,” he wrote. “The world is a scary place but we will all figure this out together. We held on to these dates as long as we could and I cannot wait to see all of you in person as soon as I can. Be safe.”

Justin and his wife, Hailey, have been social distancing at their home in Justin’s native Canada.

“Justin and Hailey are still in Canada,” the source confirms to People. “They are able to safely be outside in nature every day and are enjoying the quiet time.”

Adam Levine stars in new ad campaign, sings Peter Gabriel classic in his bathrobe

Brian ChinIf you're a Maroon 5 fan who'd like to be able to listen to your music in peace while in quarantine with others, then Adam Levine's got the tech for you.

He's the face of a new ad campaign for Shure, promoting the brand's new AONIC 50 wireless noise-canceling headphones and AONIC 215 sound-isolating earphones.  Adam and Maroon 5 have worked with the brand for more than 10 years. 

The commercial features the Dillon Francis remix of Maroon 5's smash "Memories;" Adam stars in it and provides the voiceover.  He also sports one of his more interesting hairdos:  His head is shaved on both sides, and got a long flat blond Mohawk running down the middle.

In other Adam news, earlier this week he appeared on The Howard Stern Show via video, wearing a bathrobe identical to the one Brad Pitt wore in Fight Club.  He performed a version of Peter Gabriel's classic 1986 song "In Your Eyes," which Adam thinks is one of the top 10 songs ever written.  The other is The Beach Boys' "God Only Knows."
