Justin Bieber has canceled his “Justice” world tour with 70 shows remaining.

The singer announced the news on Tuesday with a statement posted to his Instagram Story.

“Earlier this year, I went public about my battle with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome, where my face was partially paralyzed,” Bieber wrote.

“As the result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North American leg of the Justice Tour,” he continued. “After resting and consulting with my doctors, family and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue with the tour. I performed six live shows, but it took a real toll on me.”

“After getting off the stage, the exhaustion overtook me, and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now,” he added. “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 continued. “I’ve been so proud to bring this show and our message of Justice to the world. Thank you for your prayers and support throughout all of this! I love you all passionately!”
