But now the singer has pulled the plug on the entire Down Under leg, which was set to take in six concerts, finishing in Auckland, New Zealand.
The 28-year-old Canadian has not disclosed a reason for cancelling the tour.
“Frontier Touring regret to advise that Justin Bieber’s Justice Tour of Australia and New Zealand has been cancelled,” the company said in a statement.
“All tickets purchased through the official ticketing outlets will receive a refund directly from the shows’ ticketing agency.”
The 2024 European leg of Bieber’s tour has also been cancelled.
Australian fans quickly took to social media to express their frustration and sadness.
“Justin Bieber officially cancelled the rest of the Justice Tour and I truly feel like I’ll never see him again,” one fan wrote.
“I’m not being dramatic … I just feel it in my soul that he’s done.
“That his heart just isn’t in it anymore. I’m sad.”
“Justin Bieber, why?” wrote another.
“Australians were so looking forward to seeing you tour.
“I have 10yr old twin girls who were awaiting their first concert.”
Other fans, who had been holding onto concert tickets since COVID hit in 2020, were annoyed Bieber hadn’t released a personal statement.
“Not even sad about the Justin Bieber tour officially being cancelled (after booking more than a year ago) seeing as he couldn’t even make a statement himself,” one fan grumbled.
“An email from Ticketmaster is all I’ve got.”
“Would’ve been nice for Justin Bieber to have announced and apologised for cancelling his justice tour instead of finding out through Twitter but oh well thanks mate,” added another.
Referring to Bieber’s recent health battles, one fan said: “Health should always come first and is what is most important.”
“But I really am disappointed in the lack of communication from Justin Bieber and his team regarding the Justice tour,” they added.
“If there’s ever going to be another tour, I hope it’s much more reliable.”
Early in 2022, Bieber revealed he was too unwell to play shows due to Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which left the right side of his face paralysed.
“It is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis,” Bieber said of his diagnosis in a video posted on his Instagram account at the time.
“As you can see this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face; this nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.”
The illness forced him to cancel the North American leg of the tour last June.
He returned to the stage in August but a short time later said he needed another break, following six live shows in Europe and Rock in Rio concerts.
The Australian concerts were set to be Bieber’s first in more than five years after he last visited Australian shores in 2017.
Bieber had previously addressed those who have had frustrated by the cancellation of his concerts, saying he was “physically, obviously, not capable of doing them”.
“This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case, but, obviously, my body’s telling me I’ve got to slow down,” he said.
“I hope you guys understand. I’ll be using this time to just rest and relax and get back to a hundred per cent so that I can do what I was born to do.”
