Justin Bieber has been forced to postpone the remaining US dates on his “Justice World Tour” as he continues to battle partial paralysis caused by Ramsey Hunt syndrome.
Beiber had previously cancelled performances in Toronto and Washington, DC, but now he’s clearing his schedule until the European leg of the tour begins at the end of July. “In light of Justin’s ongoing recovery, the remaining US Justice Tour shows scheduled for June and early July will be postponed,” Live Nation wrote in a statement. “Justin continues to receive the best medical care possible, is upbeat about his recovery, and is looking forward to getting back out on the road and performing for his fans overseas later this summer.”
Refunds will be offered at point of purchase, and rescheduled dates will be announced soon.
Bieber unveiled his struggles with Ramsay Hunt syndrome in an Instagram video posted last week. “As you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves,” he said. “As you can see, this eye is not blinking, I can’t smile on this side of my face, this nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.”
This is the latest setback to Bieber’s star-crossed “Justice World Tour.” Earlier this year, he had to delay dates after testing positive for COVID-19.
