After cancelling his tour due to his Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis, Justin Bieber stated on Tuesday that he would resume his world tour via the tour’s official social media outlets.
Initially, Bieber’s Justice World Tour was to kick off in 2021 but due to COVID-19 restrictions varying by state, the tour was moved to 2022, before being put on hold again due to Bieber’s health conditions. However, the artist has recovered and announced the continuation of his tour.
On September 28 in DHL Stadium, Cape Town & October 1 in FNB Stadium, Johannesburg, Bieber will perform in South Africa before moving on to the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
For the remainder of the tour which will run from January through March 2023, Bieber will travel back to Europe.
“We’ve been working hard to create the best show we’ve ever done, and we can’t wait to share it with fans around the world. I’ll see you soon,” said Bieber.
Just hours before his first scheduled performance in Toronto in June, Bieber declared that his Justice World Tour will be put on hold due to sickness.
The 28-year-old revealed in a video that he has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a condition that has left him with partial facial paralysis.
‘Justice’ has amassed nearly 9 billion streams worldwide, arriving on the back of huge international hits ‘Anyone’, ‘Lonely’ and ‘Holy’, which had already gathered 2 billion streams prior to the album’s release.
Another breakout smash hit from the album immediately followed, with ‘Peaches’ racking up over 2.5 billion streams so far.
The Kid LAROI duet ‘Stay’, was released in July this year and became the fastest song ever to hit 1 billion streams on Spotify.
In an unprecedented career that started when he was 13 years old, Bieber has released 6 studio albums and holds 32 Guinness World Records, 21 Billboard Music Awards, 2 BRIT Awards, 18 American Music Awards and 21 MTV Europe Music Awards.
He has sold over 80 million albums and last year broke Elvis Presley’s record as the youngest solo artist to have 8 albums reach Number 1 on the Billboard 200 charts.
In August, he broke the all-time record for monthly listeners on Spotify with over 83 million.
Recently named Artist Of The Year at the MTV Video Music Awards and nominated for a field-leading 8 MTV EMA Awards, Bieber remains the Number 1 artist on both YouTube and Spotify worldwide, cementing his place as one of the biggest pop stars of the 21st century.
