Justin Bieber will not be continuing his tour.
The remaining dates of the 28-year-old’s current “Justice” tour have been canceled. The announcement was officially made on Tuesday morning. The announcement comes in the midst of Bieber’s wife, Hailey, continuing to make headlines pertaining to alleged beef with Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
This particular announcement is not the first time the “One Less Lonely Girl” singer has had to cut his tours short.
In September of last year, The Blast explored Bieber’s decision to postpone a selection of tour dates due to his struggle with Ramsey Hunt Syndrome. Bieber has been quite candid in discussing his struggle with Ramsey Hunt Syndrome; the condition causes partial facial paralysis.
Bieber’s Tour Cancellation Follows Fall 2022 Decision To Postpone Several ‘Justice’ Tour Dates
Bieber went into further detail about his September 2022 decision to postpone several tour dates. He returned to the stage in July after a break and performed throughout the following month.
Bieber penned a note on his Instagram story wherein he shared more insight into his decision at the time.
“Earlier this year, I went public about my battle with Ramsey-Hunt Syndrome, where my face was partially paralyzed. As a result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North American 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 live shows, but it took a real toll on me,” Bieber continued.
“This past weekend, I performed at Rock In Rio, and I gave everything I had to the people of Brazil. After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now. So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be ok, but I need time to rest and get better,” he explained.
“I’ve been so proud to bring this show and our message of ‘Justice’ to the world,” Bieber went on. “Thank you for your prayers and support throughout all of this! I love you all passionately,” The “Sorry” singer concluded.
Sources attributed the state of Bieber’s mental health as being a key component behind his decision, originally reporting to TMZ. (per The Blast)

The “Justice” tour originally began in 2021 and had been affected by COVID-19-related cancellations.
The official Twitter account for the tour announced the cancelation of the remaining dates, and encouraged attendees to “Check in with your point of purchase for refunds for your show dates.” (via 107.5 The River, Nashville.)
‘Biebelibers’ quickly responded to the news, venting their disappointment in the Justice Tour Updates’ Twitter thread.
“The fact it took 5 months after the last concert to u guys officially announced, it’s p*ssed me off,” an irate fan wrote. “So unprofessional.”
“my chances of ever meeting him are 0%,” another fan lamented.
“IDK why I even bothered to get tickets. Saw this coming as soon as he announced he was going on tour,” another ‘Bieberliber’ tweeted. “You can tell this man has lost all passion for his job.”
“Disappointed but not surprised at this,” another fan chimed in.
Other fans suspected his decision was made in order to make room for a new career ‘era.’
“Because new era is coming,” a fan reasoned.
“Justice tour is getting cancelled [sic] because he’s starting a new era soon and it won’t make sense to still be on a ‘Justice’ tour when ‘Justice’ era is over; and he will be going on another world tour for the new album and era,” another speculated.
“Feel like it would be nice to hear from him,” another fan weighed in. “like even just on his socials, or a tween announcement from his team and not these accounts.”
As of this writing, Bieber has not commented on the development.
