Justin Bieber announces another break from tour - Malaysia show cancelled?
Canadian popstar Justin Bieber who is currently on tour for his Justice World Tour has announced he will be taking a break to prioritise his health.
The 28-year-old singer was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome earlier in June, a rare condition that attacks facial nerves.
“I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being,” he wrote in a note that was uploaded in an Instagram story.
Because of his health condition Bieber had not been able to complete the North American leg of the Justice Tour.
But after resting and consulting doctors, he resumed shows in Europe, performing six shows.
“This past weekend I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to the people in Brazil.
“After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realised that I need to make my health the priority right now.
“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,” he wrote.
He then thanked fans for their unconditional support.
Meanwhile, PR Worldwide, the organiser behind the Justice World Tour in Malaysia released a statement on its Instagram page.
"We are aware that Justin Bieber has decided to take a break from touring and wish Justin a speedy recovery and admire his decision to put his health first. We can't wait to see him back on the road.
"Our understanding is the Asia leg of the tour is set to continue as scheduled."
“Please stay tuned to AEG Presents socials, PR Worldwide socials and website for official updates,” wrote PR Worldwide director Anita Baskaran, in response to Sinar Daily.
Justice World Tour live in Kuala Lumpur was slated for Oct 22, at the National Stadium Bukit Jalil.
