Justin Bieber says his Justice World Tour has taken its toll on his health and he has once again decided to take a break from it to make his health a top priority.
Bieber had tour dates scheduled across the globe including in South Africa, with a show scheduled for Cape Town on 28 September and one in Johannesburg on 1 October.
The tour was set to continue through into early December 2022, and pick up again in January, with an end date in late March 2023 in Poland.
But in an announcement posted on his Instagram on Tuesday, titled “Justin Bieber Justice World Tour Announcement,” Bieber said that earlier this year he went public about his struggle with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome – a complication of shingles – which resulted in his face being partly paralysed.
“As a result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North America leg of the Justice Tour. After resting and consulting my doctors, family and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue with the tour.”
