Justin Bieber’s ‘Justice’ world tour has come to an abrupt end.
After several postponements, the singer and his team have seemingly called off the remaining shows of the European leg of the tour and more, including the June 2024 shows scheduled for the Kia Forum in Inglewood. The Utilita Arena Sheffield in the UK, one of the upcoming stops on Bieber’s tour, announced Tuesday that “the show has been canceled.”
Lovers on Twitter shared screenshots of ticket sales platforms AXS and Ticketmaster announcing that their upcoming events have also been cancelled.
“We are sorry to inform you that the Justin Bieber shows that were scheduled to take place at the O2 arena have been cancelled,” said a screenshot of an email from the London location shared in a tweet. “We understand you will be disappointed and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause,” the email continued.
In addition, the Ticketmaster website listed a majority of shows, including those at the Tauron Arena in Krakow, Poland, and the AO Arena in Manchester, UK, as cancelled. Several of Bieber’s shows in 2024 are also listed as canceled.
Bieber representatives did not immediately respond to The Times’ request for confirmation on Tuesday.
The cancellation of the “Justice” tour comes months after Bieber, 28, announced he would be taking a break from touring in September. The singer said in a post on his Instagram story that canceling future shows would allow him to focus on himself.
“After coming off the stage, I was overcome with exhaustion and realized that I now have to prioritize my health,” the “Peaches” singer said in a statement a day after his performance at Rio’s Rock in Rio de Janeiro.
He continued: “So I’m going to take a break from touring for a while. It will be fine, but I need time to rest and get better.”
Bieber first postponed his tour in June 2022 after sharing with fans that he had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a virus that has caused partial facial paralysis.
“As you can see, this eye doesn’t blink. I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril won’t move,” Bieber said in an Instagram video. “So there’s complete paralysis on this side of my face.”
The Mayo Clinic Ramsay said Hunt occurs in people who have had chickenpox and is an outbreak of shingles that affects a nerve near one ear and causes unilateral paralysis and hearing loss. It is most common in people over the age of 60.
“So for those frustrated with my cancellations of the following shows, I’m just physically unable to do them,” Bieber said in his June video. “This is quite serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case, but my body is clearly telling me to slow down.”
