#Showbiz: Justin Bieber cancels music tour to prioritise health

KUALA LUMPUR: Global popstar Justin Bieber will be taking a break from his rescheduled Justice World Tour due to mental and physical health issues.

According to Reuters, the 28-year-old Canadian artiste musician posted the announcement on Instagram recently.

Bieber explained that performing six live shows following his Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis earlier this year, "took a real toll."

"This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to the people in Brazil," he said.

But he added that exhaustion "overtook" him and decided to prioritise his health over the tour after following up with his doctors, family and team.

"I'm going to take a break from touring for the time being. I'm going to be okay, 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 said.

Bieber then thanked his fans for their support and prayers before ending his announcement with, "I love you all passionately!"

His world tour which began in march had already been postponed earlier this years after the singer and members of his team had tested positive for Covid-19.

The rest of the tour was initially scheduled to cover 70 shows in South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe that would run until March of 2023.

So far, there has been no news on when the concerts will resume.

In June, Bieber, who became a global star at the age of 13, revealed that he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.

The ailment left half of his face paralysed and forced him to cancel performances in order to recover.
