Justin Bieber has canceled his Justice World Tour, as the pop superstar plans to take a break from touring to focus on his health.
In an announcement on the Instagram, Bieber said, “Earlier this year, I went public about my battle with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, where my face was partly paralyzed. As the result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North America leg of the Justice tour.”
“After resting and consulting with my doctors, family and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue with the tour. I performed six live shows, but it took a real toll on me,” he added. “This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to the people in Brazil.”
In June, Bieber postponed several of his Justice Tour dates after he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome. Bieber resumed the Justice World Tour on July 31.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near one of your ears. In addition to the painful shingles rash, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss in the affected ear.
“After getting off the stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now,” Bieber said. “So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be ok, but I need time to rest and get better.”
“I’ve been so proud to bring this show and our message of Justice to the world,” he concluded. “Thank you for your prayers and support throughout all of this! I love you all passionately!”
The Justice World Tour was scheduled through early December 2022, and had been set to pick up again in January, with an end date in late March 2023 in Poland.
