Justin Bieber will restart world tour after reportedly recovering from rare facial paralysis syndrome

The Justice World Tour will resume in Italy on July 31, with 14 more tour dates remaining

JUSTIN Bieber, will resume his seven-leg, 130-date Justice World Tour at the end of the month, after having postponed 14 dates to recover from the rare Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

The 28-year-old two-time Grammy winner is still on the schedule to perform on the Piazza Napoleon stage in Tuscany on July 31 as part of the Lucca Summer Festival.

The Instagram account for Lucca Summer was promoting Bieber’s headline performance yesterday morning over Instastory.

Among the tour dates that had been postponed was a performance at National Stadium Bukit Jalil on October 22. No word yet on whether that is back on the schedule.

It had been revealed on June 10 by Bieber himself that the right side of his face was temporarily paralysed after coming down with the disease. He has spent the time since recovering in the Bahamas and Coeur d’Alene.

“It is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves, and has caused my face to have paralysis,” Bieber said.

“As you can see, this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile with this side of my face. This nostril will not move, so there is full paralysis in this side of my face.

“So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically obviously not capable of doing them.

“This is pretty serious you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case but, obviously, my body’s telling me I got to slow down. And I hope you guys understand and I’ll be using this time to just rest and relax and get back to 100 percent so that I can do what I was born to do.

“But in the meantime, this ain’t it. I gotta go get my rest on so that I can get my face back to where it’s supposed to be.”

Normally, those suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome reportedly take many months or up to a year to fully recover and regain functionality – which makes it surprising that Bieber has seemingly recovered in less than two months.

This is not the first time Bieber has cancelled a world tour, having suddenly halted the last 14 shows of his US$256 million (RM1.13 billion) grossing, 162-date Purpose World Tour in 2017, which he attributed to ‘depression, anxiety, and exhaustion.’
