UPDATED 10/6, 7:10 p.m. ET: Justin Bieber has further postponed all remaining stops on his Justice World Tour.

AEG Presents UK shared the news Thursday, one month after the Biebs announced he was pausing live performances to focus on his health. The entertainment company confirmed that the postponement includes all dates up to March 25, 2023. The 28-year-old’s last concert took place Sept. 4 in Brazil, with following stops  having been scheduled in Cape Town, Tel Aviv, Sydney, London, Copenhagen, and Poland.

The trek has now been postponed a total of five times, due to factors like the global pandemic and Bieber’s battle with Ramsay Hunt—a facial paralysis syndrome he revealed back in June.

AEG has yet to announce potential new dates, but urged ticket holders to stay tuned for more information.

Justin Bieber is taking break from the Justice Tour to focus on his health. 

Bieber took to his Instagram Stories on Tuesday to announce the news. A month ago the pop star resumed touring after revealing in June that he had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

In his announcement on IG, Bieber mentioned the illness as the reason he was not able to complete the North American leg of the Justice Tour, before explaining that his exhaustion following shows in Europe resulted in his decision to pause the global tour in order to “rest and get better.”

“I performed six live shows, but it took a real toll on me,” he wrote. “This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to the people in Brazil.”

“After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now,” Bieber continued. “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.”

According to Deadline, this marks the fifth time Bieber has paused or postpone the massive tour for his March 2021 album, which has roughly 70 dates remaining.

On July 31, Bieber resumed his global tour with a performance at the Lucca Summer Festival in Italy. Following the concert, Justin shared a video on Instagram in which he thanked fans for supporting him through his recovery.

“Guys, I want to say thank you so much for having me back. This is my first day back,” he told the crowd. “It’s so good to be here. As some of you guys know, the Justice Tour is about equality. It’s about justice for all. No matter what you look like, no matter your shape, your size, your ethnicity. We’re all the same, we’re all one. We know that racism is evil. We know that division is evil. It is wrong. But we are here to be the difference-makers, and I want to say thank you to each and every one of you guys for being a part of this tour tonight.”
