After sharing about his “horrific” health situation last week, Justin Bieber is focusing on getting better. The singer continues to put work on hold at the moment to focus more on his healing.
On Thursday last week, he shared that he has Ramsay Hunt syndrome and because of this he postponed his last nine shows in the U.S. as part of his “Justice World Tour.”
AEG Presents, Bieber’s tour promoter, issued a statement shared by Summerset’s Twitter account, “In light of Justin’s ongoing recovery, the remaining US Justice Tour shows scheduled for June and early July, including at Summerfest at the @amfamamp in Milwaukee, WI on Friday, June 24, 2022 will be postponed.’
“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.”
The following concert dates have been postponed: Philadelphia, Penn. (Thursday), Uncasville, Conn. (Saturday), Boston, Mass. (June 20), St. Louis, Mo. (June 23), Milwaukee, Wis. (June 24), Las Vegas, Nev. (June 28), Glendale, Calif. (June 30) and Inglewood, Calif. (July 2 and 3).
Meanwhile, he’s expected to begin his international shows on July 31 in Lucca, Italy.
The 28-year-old artist shared his diagnosis on Instagram to his 242 million followers. He even showed them the paralyzed part of his face. Ramsay Hunt syndrome is characterized by a painful rash on the face, mouth, or around the ear. It’s caused by the varicella-zoster virus.
The Grammy winner said on the video, “For those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically obviously not capable of doing them.”
Last weekend, the Madison Square Garden announced that his shows, which were supposed to be held last Monday and Tuesday, were postponed because of his medical condition.
Meanwhile, his wife Hailey Bieber, assured on Good Morning America on Wednesday, “He’s doing really well … he’s feeling a lot better and obviously it was just a very scary and random situation to happen.”
“He’s going to be totally OK, and I’m just grateful that he’s fine.”
The model also mentioned about the support that they have received from his fans. She revealed, “Every single person has sent well wishes, advice, recommendations. It’s been really amazing.”
