Justin Bieber’s Justice World Tour was set to be an incredible undertaking, to begin with. Considering what a spectacle his performances are and how much production heavy-lifting has to be done for each show, to be able to put on close to 100 concerts in less than a year is a huge task. Now Bieber, who has been public about his struggles with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome — and had already postponed a set of tour dates as he tried to get better — is postponing the remaining 70 dates on the Justice World Tour to focus on his physical health and overall well-being.
Bieber just played at the Rock In Rio festival in Brazil and in a statement posted to his Instagram Story, he wrote, “After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I needed to make my health a priority right now. So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being.”

Variety confirmed the statement that Bieber is postponing the tour indefinitely with his reps. The dates would have stretched into March of 2023. Read Bieber’s full statement below.
“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 end consulting with 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. 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 needed to make my health a priority right now. 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 period I’ve been so proud to bring this show and our message of justice to the world.Thank you for your prayers and support throughout all of this exclamation point i love you all passionately!”
