Pop superstar Justin Bieber, who earlier this month postponed a few of his shows after being diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, has postponed the remaining U.S. dates on his Justice Tour as he recovers from the health problem.
The tour’s promoter, AEG Presents, announced in a statement that read, “In light of Justin’s ongoing recovery, the remaining US Justice Tour shows scheduled for June and early July, including at Summerfest at the @amfamamp in Milwaukee, WI on Friday, June 24, 2022 will be postponed.”
The “Peaches” singer in a video shared on Friday, June 10, explained that he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
“I wanted to update you guys on what’s been going on,” Bieber began his message. “Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome. And it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.”
According to Mayo Clinic, Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near one of your ears. In addition to the painful shingles rash, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss in the affected ear.
Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After chickenpox clears up, the virus still lives in your nerves. Years later, it may reactivate. When it does, it can affect your facial nerves.
Prompt treatment of Ramsay Hunt syndrome can reduce the risk of complications, which can include permanent facial muscle weakness and deafness.
