Superstar Justin Bieber announced he was once again canceling his “Justice World Tour” because he needs to make his “health a priority” — and he didn’t specify when it would be back on.
In a message shared on his Instagram Stories Tuesday, the 28-year-old singer talked about how exhausted he was after getting off the stage following his show in Rock in Rio over the weekend and said that he gave “everything he had to the people in Brazil.”
“Earlier this year, I went public with my battle with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome, where my face was partially paralyzed,” Bieber explained in his announcement. “As the result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North American 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,” he added, as he shared that the six shows took a real “toll” on him.
“After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now,” the superstar singer continued. “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.”
The “Baby” hitmaker closed out his post noting how proud he’s been to bring “message of Justice to the world” as he thanked fans for all their prayers and support through all he’s been going through. The tour dates left on the schedule include dates through early December 2022 — after which he was supposed to return to Europe in early 2023 — with the last show planned for March 21, 2023 in Poland.

The “Peaches” hitmaker finally returned to the stage in August — he walked away from his world tour two months earlier after suffering partial face paralysis, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
In June, Bieber revealed that he had to leave the tour after being diagnosed with the rare disorder that left him paralyzed on one side of his face. But his condition apparently progressed in more recent weeks to the point that he could perform again. The rare disease is connected to having the chicken pox/shingles virus.
The “Ghost” hitmaker is married to 25-year-old supermodel Hailey Bieber.
