Looks like the curtain’s been drawn on the pop star by Justin Bieber world Tour.
The remaining dates of the Justice World Tour, which was officially canceled in September, have been removed from the official Bieber website from Tuesday. Besides, several of the singer’s upcoming shows listed on Ticketmaster – including the 2024 concerts in California, Connecticut and Washington DC – have been canceled.
USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Bieber and Ticketmaster for further details.
In September, Bieber advertised in an Instagram story that he was canceling the rest of his world tour, which began in February 2022, to “take time to rest and get better”. The tour had 70 shows scheduled through 2023.
“After resting and consulting my doctors, family and crew, I went to Europe with the aim of continuing the tour. I performed six live shows, but it cost me a lot,” wrote Bieber at the time. “So I’m going to take a break from touring for now. I’ll be fine.”

Bieber postponed a list of dates in the United States during his Justice tour in June 2022 after suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which partially paralyzed his face. The “Ghost” singer couldn’t reschedule his summer streak of shows in the United States, but he played a few gigs in Europe in August before heading to Brazil to perform at Rock in Rio in September.
“After coming off the stage (in Brazil), exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I had to make my health a priority right now,” Bieber said in his statement.
Bieber isn’t the first high-profile music star to publicly cite health — and the mental toll of touring and performing — as a reason for forgoing live engagements.
Fellow Canadian pop singer Shawn Mendes canceled its world tour in July 2022, which would have played in North America and Europe until 2023. Similarly, megastar K-pop group BTS postponed its world tour in 2020, citing burnout as a factor .
