Set to take his ‘Justice’ world tour to Asia in October 2022, it was recently announced that Justin Bieber will be once again postponing the shows, which might now take place next year. Here’s what we know so far. By Travel + Leisure
Not long ago, Justin Bieber had cancelled a few and postponed some of the dates from his “Justice” world tour by making an announcement on his Instagram account that he is once again taking a break from touring, months after revealing he’d been diagnosed with a syndrome that caused him partial facial paralysis. The singer shared another such announcement once again stating that the next show won’t be happening for at least six month.
In June, the 28-year-old megastar had pushed back the North American leg of his “Justice” tour due to Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a complication of shingles.

The latest announcement also said that the “Justice” world tour ended with the Rio concert and that all the remaining dates have been postponed to next year. It is still not clear what the ticket holders will have to do as more information is awaited.

After completing the initial leg of the tour, Bieber had gone back on the road, performing six live shows in Europe and the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil.
But he said, after the show, that his return to the stage had been premature. “This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and gave everything I have to the people in Brazil. After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me, and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now,” Bieber said. “So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being,” the “Peaches” singer continued. “I’m going to be OK, but I need time to rest and get better. I’ve been so proud to bring this show and our message of justice to the world.”
In his previous announcement, the singer had also cancelled his show in India. A representative from BookMyShow confirmed that the New Delhi-NCR show was cancelled. According to a report by Business Standard, the representative said, “We are extremely disappointed to share that the Justin Bieber Justice World Tour India’ scheduled for October 18th, 2022 at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi has been cancelled owing to the singer’s health concerns. We have just been informed that due to health concerns, he will unfortunately not be able to make it next month.”
Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that can inflame and paralyze the facial nerve and cause a painful rash around the ear or mouth. In addition to facial paralysis, it can cause hearing loss.
Bieber had dozens of global performances scheduled through March 2023, including an Asian tour from October to November 2022.
The superstar did not give an estimated recovery timeline or indicate whether the “Justice” tour would ever resume.
COVID-19 had forced two postponements even before the singer’s health began suffering.
