Justin Bieber’s health condition
Earlier this year, the Canadian artist released a video announcing that he had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which has left his face partially paralyzed.
Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a shingles breakout that affects the facial nerves next to the ear, paralysing a portion of the face.
He also apologised to fans for putting off his concert dates as he wanted to focus on his health instead.
On Twitter, the postponement of the Justice World Tour sparked a flurry of reactions from fans, where some were fed up by the last-minute announcement.
On the other hand, some were more understanding of Bieber’s condition and wished him speedy recovery.
Tickets will be refunded
As for those who have bought tickets to watch Bieber live in KL, GoLive Asia have released a statement saying that a full refund will be given.
Ticketholders will be given a 14-day window period from Oct 7 to Oct 20 to submit their request on whether to retain or get a refund for the tickets.
