Justin Bieber cancels world tour due to health: “Exhaustion overtook me”

Justin Bieber announced via Instagram that he has cancelled his remaining 70 world tour dates, in order to “rest and get better.”

Justin Bieber broke the news to his fans that he will not be continuing his world tour at this point in time, via an Instagram story posted on Tuesday (September 6): “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 live shows, but it took a real toll on me. So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be OK.”

Bieber had 70 shows left to perform, which were set to run through 2023. However, according to the Sorry hitmaker, “after getting off the stage (in Brazil), the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now.”

It has been a challenging year for Justin Bieber, due to a myriad of health issues. In June of this year, the pop star postponed a number of US shows scheduled across his Justice tour, after battling Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which left part of his face paralyzed. Although he wasn’t able to reschedule all of his summer US tour dates, he did end up playing a few concerts in Europe during August.

However, during his Brazil show at Rock in Rio last weekend, the singer felt burdened by health issues once again, and will now be taking a hiatus, for a currently-undetermined period of time, in order to “rest and get better.”
