Singer Justin Bieber, who canceled two concert dates in Toronto (Canada), announced this Friday on his Instagram account that he was suffering from a rare syndrome that disables one side of his face, and forced him to cancel his tour.
“Hello everyone (…) As you can see on my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt,” the world star explains in the video posted to his account 240 million subscribers. “There is complete numbness on this side of my face,” the Canadian continues, showing that he can only blink with one eye, or smile with only one side of his mouth.
“So for those who are frustrated that my upcoming shows are being canceled, I can not do them physically. As you can see, this is very serious,” says the 28-year-old singer.
What about his tour of Europe?
His Justice World Tour is scheduled to stop in New York on Mondays and Tuesdays at the famous Madison Square Garden, and will continue on several dates in the United States before heading to Europe – he was expected in Paris on March 6 and 7, 2023, with no sign of Justin Bieber resuming his tour.
It has already been postponed twice due to the epidemic and the cancellation of concerts in Toronto has angered some fans on social media.
The Canadian singer was nominated in eight categories at this year’s Grammy Awards, but he did not win any awards. He received two throughout his life.
Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is a complication of singles, which occurs when the facial nerve near one ear is affected. In addition to facial numbness, it can cause hearing loss. The “Peaches” singer said he does facial exercises and takes the time to “relax and unwind and return to 100 percent.”
