Justin Bieber has cancelled his current world tour in order to prioritise his health.
The singer, 28, explained his reasons to his fans on Instagram last night, September 6, as he detailed how his ongoing health battles have impacted his ability to perform on stage, after being diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome earlier this year.
Justin kicked off his Justice World Tour in March this year, but was forced to cancel shows in June when he was left suffering from facial paralysis due to his condition.
The Love Yourself singer recently resumed his touring duties and still had 70 shows left to complete before wrapping things up in March 2023, but the star has now pulled the plug completely on the tour in order to protect his physical and mental health.
Writing on his Instagram Stories on Tuesday night, Justin told his fans and followers: 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 continued: “This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to the people in Brazil. After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now.
“So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be okay 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.”
Justin signed off telling his fans: “Thank you for your prayers and support throughout all of this! I love you all passionately.”
