Justin Bieber South Africa tour has been cancelled just weeks before coming to Mzansi.
The ‘Peaches’ singer announced on Tuesday night that he will be suspending the Justice World tour.
“So I’m going to take a break from touring from the time being,” he writes in a statement.
He says that his decision to take a break is due to health reasons.
Big Concerts has put out a statement confirming that the SA leg has been cancelled.
Why did Justin Bieber Cancel the Justice World Tour?
In June we wrote that Justin Bieber has announced that half of his face is paralysed.
This was due to a neurological disorder that affected his use of his facial muscles.
“Earlier this year, I went public about my battle with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome, where my face was partly paralysed.”
This illness forced Bieber to not be able to continue with the North American leg of the tour.
However, as soon as the artist got better, he was back on the road.
This time the Justice World Tour had reached Europe and only weeks away from reaching South Africa.
Just as it seemed like he would be making his way here, things went south.
“After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me, and I realised that I need to make my health a priority right now” he continued.
Justin Bieber South Africa Tour
Last year, Big Concerts announced that the Justin Bieber concert will be happening in South Africa.
Cape Town and Johannesburg were the only two cities where the ‘What Do You Mean?” singer was going to perform.
On Tuesday, the 6th of September, just 22 days before the tour hits our shores Justin Bieber made the announcement.
Bieber was to perform in Cape Town on the 28th of September and Joburg on the 1st of October 2022.
This now means that both the Joburg and Cape Town leg of the Justin Bieber South Africa tour will not be happening at all.
“I am going to be ok, but I need time to rest and get better,” reads the statement.
