KUALA LUMPUR: Canadian pop star Justin Bieber is not coming to town on Oct 22.
His 7pm Justice World Tour Kuala Lumpur at Bukit Jalil National Stadium has been postponed to a later date.
GoLive Asia, the company that manages ticketing for Bieber's Malaysian concert, said that a new date and venue for the concert had yet to be announced. However, fans of the singer can obtain refunds.
"The concert's organiser and promoter AEG Presents and PR Worldwide have just announced that Justin Bieber's Justice World Tour Kuala Lumpur has been postponed, and they will announce a new concert and venue later," said GoLive in a statement today.
GoLive also said that ticket-holders could apply for refunds from now until Oct 20.
"Tickets purchased are still valid for the concert's new date. As for refunds, they will take up to 30 days, and we will contact the ticket-holders if transaction problems occur."
Bieber announced on Instagram on Sept 6 that he was taking a break from touring to "take care of his health", since he was recently diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome that caused a partial facial paralysis.
Bieber, 28, delayed the North American leg of his tour in June as a result of his illness, but resumed touring and entertained fans in six concerts in Europe and Brazil in early September.
Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is a neurological disorder that paralyses facial nerves and can even cause hearing loss.
Bieber's year-long world tour which began in March was initially scheduled to cover 70 shows in South America, Asia, Europe and Australia.
Bieber was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in June. He was earlier tested positive for Covid-19 in February.
