Canadian singer Justin Bieber will resume performances on the “Justice” tour, which was interrupted in June after the musician was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which paralyzed part of the artist’s face. He will return to the stage on July 31, during a performance in Italy.

The revival announcement was made on the tour’s official social media profiles: “Justin Bieber announced today that the ‘Justice’ World Tour will resume at Lucca Festival in Italy on July 31. Justin Bieber will host the touring festivals across Europe and continuing with world tours through South America, South Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, then returning to Europe in 2024,” the statement read.

Details of the postponed US shows will be released soon. In Brazil, the musician has scheduled three performances: one at Rock in Rio, on September 4, and two in São Paulo, on September 14 and 15. In June, Bieber canceled the shows he would do in Canada and the United States after being diagnosed with the disease.

Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs when an outbreak of shingles, an illness linked to varicella zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox, affects a facial nerve near the ears, causing paralysis in parts of the face. Justin’s wife Hailey Bieber has been following her husband’s treatment and contributing to fans, giving several updates on the Canadian’s condition.
