In a social media address to fans, Bieber explained that his battle with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome is ongoing and interfering with his ability to perform.

“After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now. So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be ok, but I need time to rest and get better,” he wrote.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Ramsay Hunt syndrome, also known as herpes zoster oticus, occurs when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve close to the ear. It is the same virus that can cause chickenpox and can occur in people who previously were infected with chickenpox, according to The Washington Post.

Bieber previously halted his “Justice” tour to rest, forcing the cancelation of the final leg of the North American dates.

Six dates into the resumed tour, however, Bieber is choosing to focus on his health.
