Justin Bieber, Flush with Cash from Catalog Sale, Cancels the Rest of 2023 Tour Dates Because of Face Paralysis Health Issue


Well, that’s it.

There will be no more “Justice” for Justin Bieber. The balance of his 2023 tour has been cancelled. Previously, Bieber had cancelled the bulk of his 2022 dates after being diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, partial paralysis of his face.

In September 2022, he cancelled the rest of the year through this month. Now the rest of it is all gone. Fans will be sent their money back to credit cards, etc. Many will complain about lost money on travel reservations, etc. That’s the way it goes.

In the last few weeks, probably knowing he wasn’t touring again, Bieber sold his song catalog, his masters, and whatever was in his house to Hipgnosis Music. It’s said he got $200 million. My guess is he won’t tour again, or not for a long time. Maybe at some point manager Scooter Braun will set him up in Vegas for an Adele-type run.

Is Ramsay Hunt the only reason he’s not touring? Bieber suffers from depression and other mental health issues, so it’s best to be safe and secure. He’s made a wise decision.
