Singer Justin Bieber announced on Tuesday that he has to take another break from his world tour due to health complications. In June, the pop idol cut the tour short after being diagnosed with Ramsay-Hunt syndrome, which left half his face paralyzed. As part of the tour, he is also scheduled to visit Prague in March.
Just a month after visiting Europe, where Justin Bieber performed at Budapest’s Sziget Festival and Finland’s Weekend Festival, the singer announced to fans that he had to cut short his Justice World Tour.
The pop idol first suspended his world tour in June, shortly after doctors diagnosed him with Ramsay-Hunt syndrome. After a thorough rest and recovery efforts, Justin Bieber, in agreement with his team and doctors, decided to continue his concerts and went to Europe and then South America.
“I played a total of six shows, I did everything to give 100% performance to the fans, but unfortunately the effort took its toll on me immediately,” confided the singer in a statement.
“After the last show at the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil last weekend, I had to admit that my health has to be a priority. So I’m going to take a break from touring for now. I’ll be fine, but I need time to rest and get better,” the singer explained on instagram why they have to stop the tour.
For example, fans from Chile and Argentina will miss his performance. The singer planned to continue to Africa, Asia and return to Europe in early 2023. The Prague concert is scheduled for March 12 next year, but the question remains whether Justin Bieber will be okay. However, the management of the O2 arena and the singer’s management team want to reassure fans that they are not considering canceling the concert yet.
“The organizers of the Prague concert, together with Justin Bieber’s management, would like to reassure the fans and report that the concert on March 12, 2023 in Prague’s O2 arena currently remains on the planned calendar and there is no reason to believe that it should be canceled,” said Sabina Schwarzová from media planning department of the O2 arena for the TN.cz editorial office.
Justin Bieber also assured fans that he will hopefully be fine soon. They began to pray for him and send him messages full of support to defeat the insidious syndrome as soon as possible.
When Ramsay-Hunt syndrome strikes in a person, the facial nerve near the ears can be affected. Then, in addition to the painful rash, shingles can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss in the affected ear, according to the Mayo Clinic.
