By the afternoon, singer and musician John Mayer took to social media to defend the Bieber’s decision.

“When someone pulls remaining dates of a tour, it means they would have done real damage to themselves if they kept going,” he wrote. “We’ve lost so many great artists lately. I give Justin 👍🏼👍🏼 for realizing it was time to call it. You should too.”

Mayer continues his “Search for Everything World Tour” with a stop at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, this Saturday, July 29th.
