Ramsay Hunt syndrome forces Justin Bieber to cancel more shows

Ramsay Hunt syndrome forces Justin Bieber to cancel more shows.

As a result of a rare neurological disease that has left his face mostly paralyzed, pop singer Justin Bieber has been forced to postpone further performance appearances.

According to concert promoter AEG, all of Bieber’s Justice World Tour dates in June, and early July has been postponed indefinitely. St. Louis, Milwaukee, Glendale, and Los Angeles were the cities visited.

“Justin continues to get the finest medical treatment available, is optimistic about his recovery, and looks forward to going back on the road and performing for his fans internationally later this summer,” AEG said.

It’s uncertain if the European part of his tour, which was supposed to start in early August, will go on.

The 28-year-old revealed last week that he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a condition that has paralyzed one side of his face. Bieber has already postponed multiple shows due to an undisclosed sickness before the news.

In an Instagram video, Bieber explained some of the symptoms: “As you can see, this eye isn’t blinking, I can’t grin on this side of my face, and this nose won’t move,” he said, pointing to the features that barely moved as he attempted to blink and smile.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Ramsay Hunt may affect anybody who has had chickenpox and is caused by a shingles epidemic.

It may result in a rash around one ear and facial paralysis on one side. Hearing loss and vertigo are two more possible symptoms.

The Justice World Tour was initially planned for 2020 as the “Changes World Tour” to commemorate the release of Bieber’s fifth studio album. Still, it was one of the first to be postponed in the United States owing to the coronavirus.

The tour was renamed the Justin Bieber World Tour in 2021, although it was postponed for various reasons.

When Bieber tested positive for COVID-19 in February 2022, the Justice World Tour was relaunched, although performance dates were once again postponed.
