Justin Bieber’s Purpose Tour is going global, but fans in Argentina won’t be able to catch any stops in the South American nation. The itinerary omits Argentinian dates for “legal” reasons, but there’s a bit more to the story.

There are warrants for his arrest in the country that stem from a 2013 incident when Bieber allegedly directed security guards to attack a photographer. Bieber has since ignored a court summons and could face one month to six years in prison if convicted of the crime. And some people in the country will never forget the time that same year when fans tossed two Argentina flags onstage and Bieber wiped them across the floor using both his feet and a microphone stand.

Nevertheless, the “What Do U Mean?” hitmaker tweeted some thoughts to assuage his fans in Argentina.

“Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but until the legal conditions change there I can’t,” he tweeted. “Argentina I do love you. It is in fact one of my favorite places to tour. I wish this was not the case. My lawyers say it is what it is.”

Don’t cry for Bieber, Argentina.
