Canadian singer Justin Bieber, who revealed in June that he suffers from partial facial paralysis, said on Tuesday that he was once again interrupting his world concert tour.
In early June, the 28-year-old artist announced on Instagram that he was suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that paralyzes one side of the face and caused by a reactivation of the chickenpox or shingles virus.
Justin Bieber then stopped his “Justice World Tour” for several weeks before resuming the stages in Europe and most recently at the big Rock in Rio festival in Brazil.
“This weekend I gave everything for the Brazilians (but) when I left the scene I was exhausted and I realized that my health had to be a priority”, he wrote on his Instagram account.

“I’ll be fine but I need to rest to get better”
“So I’ll take a break from my tour for now. […] Everything will be fine but I need to rest to feel better “, continued the singer of Peacheswithout giving a resumption date for his concerts that would be held until next March.
His “Justice World Tour” was abruptly stopped in June in New York and several concerts were canceled in the United States and Canada.
Justin Bieber’s tour, which may never resume, had already been postponed twice due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Canadian had been nominated in eight categories at the last Grammy Awards in April, but without winning any awards. He has received two during his career.
In addition to facial nerve palsy, Ramsay Hunt syndrome (discovered by an American neurologist of the same name in 1907) causes a rash that affects the ear or mouth.
