Justin Bieber NYC Concerts Postponed After Singer Reveals Facial Paralysis – NBC New York

Days after Justin Bieber took to Instagram to tell fans he was recently diagnosed with Ramsay Hunts syndrome, Justin Bieber is postponing two upcoming shows at Madison Square Garden.

The Grammy winner was set to perform back-to-back shows on June 13 and 14 after rescheduling his 2021 tour stops in New York City.

“Due to Justin’s ongoing medical condition, this week’s Justice Tour shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City will be postponed,” a statement said.

The 28-year-old shocked fans when he broke the news Friday with only a handful of dates left on his Justice World Tour.

“It’s from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has left my face paralyzed,” he said. “As you can see, this eye doesn’t blink. I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril won’t move.”

Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs when shingles affects nerves in the face, especially near the ears. The Mayo Clinic says the syndrome can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss.

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a serious condition that can cause permanent hearing loss and vision weakness. Justin Bieber recently spoke out about this virus that has prevented him from performing. Here are some important things to know about the condition that partially paralyzed the Canadian pop singer’s face.

“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,” the statement continued.

Cardholders will be notified of new tour dates shortly.
