New York [US]June 14 (ANI): Justin Bieber has been forced to postpone his upcoming shows while touring New York at Madison Square Garden on Monday due to his ongoing health issues following the diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.
“Due to Justin’s current medical situation, this week’s Justice Tour shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City will be postponed,” the pop star’s tour promoter, AEG Presents, said in a statement. “Justin is receiving the best possible medical care and is determined to resume touring as soon as he and the doctors feel able to continue. Details on rescheduled MSG concerts will be made public shortly.”
According to Billboard, the concerts were originally scheduled to take place Monday and Tuesday on back-to-back nights at the iconic New York City venue as part of its “Justice World Tour.” However, the week before the event, the singer contracted a rare outbreak of shingles known as Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which left one side of his face paralyzed.

“As you can see, that eye isn’t blinking. I can’t smile on that side of my face. That nostril isn’t moving. So there’s complete paralysis on that side of my face,” Bieber shared. in an Instagram video on June 10, adding, “For those frustrated with my cancellations of upcoming shows, obviously I’m not physically able to do them. It’s pretty serious, as you can see.”
This medical outbreak isn’t the first time Bieber’s ongoing world tour has been postponed. In February, her scheduled performance at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington was canceled due to the wider COVID19 outbreak. The singer himself later tested positive for COVID-19 and postponed his February 20 concert at TMobile Arena in Las Vegas. (ANI)
