While beliebers were gearing up to see Justin Bieber live, the singer’s latest post came as sad news to all his fans.

The singer made an official announcement postponing his upcoming concerts due to health concerns. He has been in battling Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome for months and after making a public announcement in June 2022, he still decided to go ahead with more shows until now.

Booked to perform on October 8 and 9 at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena for his Justice World Tour, an official statement is yet to be released by the organisers regarding postponement of the two shows until further notice.

After Bieber’s performance at Rock in Rio last weekend, he experienced severe exhaustion, which led him to cancel his forthcoming concerts that are scheduled to take place later this, also leaving the ‘North America leg’ of the Justice Tour incomplete.

His statement said, “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’m going to be OK, but I need time to rest and get better. I’ve been so proud to bring this show and our message of justice to the world,” he continued.

The singer has been thankful for the support of his fans and ended with “Thank you for your prayers and support throughout all of this! I love you all passionately!”

What is Ramsay Hunt Syndrome?

In the video Bieber shared unveiling his condition to his fans, the singer showcased how he wasn’t able to move one side of his face.
“As you can see, this eye is not blinking,” Bieber said. “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. So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically, obviously, not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious, as you can see,” he added.

Per the Mayo Clinic, the condition Bieber is suffering from is Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which is also known to cause chickenpox and shingles.

The virus causes irritation and inflammation of facial nerves, leading to facial palsy and a rash affecting the ear or mouth. The extreme symptoms of this syndrome can include a painful rash inside the ear canal and outside the ear, at times attacking the tongue and roof of the mouth, along with vertigo and tinnitus.
