Justin Bieber officially cancels remainder of Justice World Tour after previous delays

It looks like the curtain has been drawn on pop star Justin Bieber’s world tour.

The remaining dates on the Justice World Tour, which was formally canceled in September, have been removed from Bieber’s official website as of Tuesday. Additionally, several of the singer’s upcoming shows listed on Ticketmaster – including 2024 concerts in California, Connecticut and Washington D.C. – have been canceled.

USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Bieber and Ticketmaster for further details. 

In September, Bieber announced in an Instagram Story that he was canceling the remainder of his world tour, which kicked off February 2022, to “take time to rest and get better.” The tour had 70 shows scheduled to run through 2023.

“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 wrote at the time. “So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be OK.”

‘Getting better every day’: Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey gives update after Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis

Bieber postponed a slate of U.S. dates on his Justice tour in June 2022 after suffering Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which partially paralyzed his face. The “Ghost” singer wasn’t able to reschedule his summer run of U.S. shows, but he played a handful of concerts in Europe in August before heading to Brazil to perform at Rock in Rio in September.

“After getting off the stage (in Brazil), the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now,” Bieber said in his statement.

Bieber isn’t the first high-profile music star to publicly cite health – and the mental toll of touring and performing – as a reason to nix live commitments.

Fellow Canadian pop singer Shawn Mendes canceled his world tour in July 2022, which would have played North America and Europe through 2023. Similarly, megastar K-pop band BTS postponed their world tour in 2020, citing burnout as a factor.
