Justin Bieber will continue his world tour after temporary facial paralysis


Justin Bieber is set to hit the road again after retiring to deal with an illness that temporarily paralyzed half of his face.

Concert promoter AEG has announced that the Stratford, Ontario pop star will resume his Justice World Tour starting July 31 with a concert in Italy.

He will then play shows across South America, South Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

The announcement comes after Bieber suddenly postponed several of his North American dates in June, including two in Toronto. One of them was canceled a few hours before the show started.

What is Ramsay Hunt syndrome, the rare disease that affects Justin Bieber?

Sunnybrook Health Science Center neurologist Dr. Matthew Burke sheds light on Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a rare disorder that popstar Justin Bieber revealed he suffered from after canceling performances in Toronto.

Bieber then took to Instagram with a video where he explained that he had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which left him unable to blink and smile on one side of his face.

AEG says new dates for the postponed North American shows will be announced soon.
