“To all my people I love you so much and I’m gonna rest and get better,” Justin Bieber announced on Instagram.
It had been just hours before Justin Bieber’s first scheduled show in Toronto that he paused his Justice World Tour.
He wrote on Instagram Story that he will reschedule a few shows, and he has yet to reveal the new dates.
It’s hard to believe I’m saying this. The “Peaches” singer wrote, “I’ve tried everything to get better, but my sickness is worsening.” According to his doctor, he will have to postpone the next few concerts.
Following a two-night performance at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Bieber was scheduled to perform two nights at Madison Square Garden in New York, followed by a stop in Washington, D.C. It is yet unclear whether these shows will be affected.
As Bieber wrote on the story, which was reposted by his manager Scooter Braun, “To all my people I love you so much and I’m gonna rest and get better.”
Originally slated for summer 2020, the Justice World Tour was originally called the Changes Tour, but was delayed to 2021, then again to 2022 due to COVID-19. A positive COVID-19 test result also forced him to postpone two of his previous Las Vegas shows. Fans who bought tickets for shows in Toronto have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration over the three rescheduled shows, along with tweets of confusion and concerns.
In addition to Changes and Justice, the tour will promote 8 top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits, including “Stay” by The Kid LAROI and “Peaches” by Daniel Caesar and Giveon.
