Days after taking to Instagram to tell fans he'd recently been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunts syndrome, a rare neurological condition that can cause facial paralysis, Justin Bieber is postponing two upcoming shows at Madison Square Garden.
The Grammy winner was set to perform back-to-back shows on June 13 and 14 after rescheduling his 2021 tour stops in New York City.
"Due to Justin's ongoing medical situation, this week's Justice Tour shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City will be postponed," a statement said Sunday.
The 28-year-old shocked fans when he delivered the news Friday with only a handful of dates left in his Justice World Tour.

"It is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis," he said. "As you can see, this eye is not blinking. I can't smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move."
Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs when shingles impact the nerves in the face, specifically near the ears. The Mayo Clinic says the syndrome can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss.
"Justin is receiving the best medical care possible and is determined to resume the tour as soon as he and the doctors feel he is able to continue," the statement continued.
Ticket holders will be notified of new tour dates shortly.
