After Justin Bieber was forced to postpone the remaining 2022 U.S. shows on his “Justice Tour,” because of symptoms from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, the pop star announced July 19 that he’s ready to head back on the road.

The good news was revealed on the Justice Tour’s official Instagram account with a post proclaiming that the trek would resume with Beiber’s previously scheduled European routing that kicks off at Italy’s Summer Festival Lucca on July 31.

The post goes on to say, “Justin will set off across a run of European festivals and continue on his international world tour performances in South America, South Africa, The Middle East, Asia, Australia & New Zealand then back to Europe in 2023. Details of Justin’s postponed U.S. shows will be announced soon.”

As previously reported, the superstar first addressed his fans via Instagram on June 11 to explain that he’s suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that’s caused by a virus attacking his ear and other facial nerves.

He demonstrated in a video how half of his face is paralyzed, and said, “For those who are frustrated by my cancellation of the next shows, I’m just physically obviously not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious as you can see. Obviously my body’s telling me to slow down. I hope you guys understand, and I’ll be using this time to just rest and relax, and get back to 100%, so that I can do what I was born to do.”

Initially, just a show or two at a time was postponed with tour promoter AEG Presents issuing a statement saying, “Justin is receiving the best medical care possible and is determined to resume the tour as soon as he and the doctors feel he is able to continue.”

Eventually the rest of Bieber’s 2022 U.S. dates were pushed back. The postponed shows include two nights at Madison Square Garden June 13-14, his June 16 show at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center and two nights at the Kia Forum in Inglewood July 2-3.

The “Justice World Tour” is Justin Bieber’s first global outing since 2016/2017’s “Purpose World Tour.” Bieber played to 2.7 million fans over the course of this run, with the finale seen by 65,000 fans at London’s British Summer Time Hyde Park festival.

Bieber ranked No. 6 on Pollstar’s 2016 Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart with 1,761,642 tickets sold and $163.3 million grossed. He added another 1,043,839 tickets sold and $93.7 million grossed the following year, placing him at No. 12 on our 2017 year-end chart.
