Justin Bieber‘s ‘Justice’ World Tour has come to an abrupt end. It’s not that Bieber is saying “never” to touring (he would never say never), but most of his current world-tour dates are being cancelled at the moment.
The tour was previously postponed five times, most recently on October 6. The singer accredited the previous postponement to his battle with Ramsey Hunt disorder, which left him with significant facial paralysis. “I need to make my health the priority right now,” he said when he announced the initial postponement on an Instagram story.
Now, the Utilita Arena in Sheffield has officially announced that their date of the tour has been cancelled. Additionally, fans with tickets for other dates are getting messages from ticket-sale venues that their dates are officially cancelled, rather than postponed. Ticketmaster still lists Bieber’s dates in Paris on March 6 and 7 as happening, and two American dates as “postponed,” but the website lists all other dates as cancelled as well. Unfortunately, there are no dates in Georgia (the state or the country) listed as happening on the site, so Bieber will have to wait to get those sweet, sweet peaches.
The singer and his team have seemingly called off the remaining shows of the tour’s European leg as well, including the June 2024 shows scheduled for the Kia Forum in Inglewood.
Fans on Twitter shared screenshots from ticket sales platforms AXS and Ticketmaster announcing that their upcoming events have been cancelled as well.
“We regret to inform you that the Justin Bieber shows planned to take place at The O2 arena have been cancelled,” according to a screenshot of an email from the London venue that was shared in a tweet. “We understand you will be disappointed and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause,” the email continued.
Additionally, the Ticketmaster website listed a majority of shows, including those at the Tauron Arena in Krakow, Poland, and the AO Arena in Manchester, Great Britain, as cancelled. Several of Bieber’s 2024 shows are also not happening anymore.
While some fans have theories that JB might never take the stage again, others are hopeful that he cancelled this tour because a new album means it wouldn’t be the ‘Justice Tour’ anymore. The ‘Peaches’ singer has yet to release a statement about the cancelled tour. So if you’ve purchased tickets for his concert, you might want to contact your point of purchase for more information about refunds.
The ‘Justice’ tour cancellation comes months after the 29-year-old singer announced that he would take a break from touring in September. Bieber said in a post to his Instagram story that calling off future shows would allow him to focus on himself.
“After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realised that I need to make my health the priority right now,” he said in a statement a day after performing at the Rock in Rio in Rio de Janeiro.
He continued: “So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be ok, but I need time to rest and get better.” Bieber first postponed his tour in June 2022 after sharing with fans that he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a virus that has caused partial facial paralysis.
“As you can see, this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move,” Bieber said in an Instagram video. “So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.”
The Mayo Clinic said Ramsay Hunt occurs in people who have had chickenpox and is a shingles outbreak that affects a nerve near one ear and causes one-sided paralysis and hearing loss. It’s most common in people older than 60.
“So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically, obviously not capable of doing them,” Bieber said in his June video. “This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case, but obviously my body is telling me I gotta slow down.”

In more Justin news, though, new music is on the way, which his wife Hailey Bieber confirmed in an interview recently. “We were listening to one specifically...,” Justin said about SZA’s new album before Hailey cut him off, “Oh, ‘Far’!” she said. “I love ‘Far’ right now, you’re right, that one’s my favourite. But also ... the new song that you just recorded, I can’t stop listening to right now. Nobody knows what that is yet,” Hailey continued.
Justin has been spotted going in and out of studios in Los Angeles over the past few months! Most recently, JB was featured on ‘Perfect Landing’ off of Don Toliver’s newest album Love Sick, which was released last week.
