It’s been a bit of a rocky start for Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” tour.

First, the London, Ont. singer was criticized by his fans for a lack of enthusiasm and not cracking a smile during a $2,000 VIP meet and greet with fans prior to his Seattle kick-off concert.

Then, several eagle-eyed concert goers noticed something wasn’t right with one of the $45 t-shirts being sold at the event.


Bieber’s management team said anyone who bought the clothing with the spelling error on it can exchange it for a corrected one.

The t-shirts were printed by New York-based company Bravado.
