‘Need to make my health the priority,’ says Justin Bieber as he suspends his Justice Tour after being diagnosed with Ramsay-Hunt syndrome; singer’s India concert remains uncertain


Justin Bieber, on Tuesday, took to social media to inform his fans about suspending the rest of his Justice tour indefinitely. The 28-year-old singer who was diagnosed with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome- a neurological disorder characterized by facial paralysis or weakness of a facial nerve had shared his health news on social media and cancelled the rest of his shows in North America. The singer was also supposed to perform in India on October 18, and later on had said that he will be back to performing on his tour.

However, now having recently performed in Brazil and Europe, Justin described that the ‘exhaustion’ overtook him and as a result he has to prioritize his health over the Justice tour. Taking to social media he shared a note that read, “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 and consulting with my doctors, family and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue with the tour. I performed six lives 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.”
