Justin Bieber has announced the cancellation of his world tour due to growing health concerns, and vows to take time to “rest and get better”.
The global superstar was scheduled to stop off in Manchester at the AO Arena in February 2023 as part of the ‘Justice Tour’ – which had already been rearranged due to COVID-19, and had 70 shows in the diary until March 2023 in South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe – but he took to social media last night to sadly confirm that he is calling-off the rest of the tour dates.
It comes after the Canadian singer revealed back in June that he had been diagnosed with a rare condition called Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which resulted in complete paralysis of the right side of his face.
While he was forced to cancel immediate North American performances at the time of his diagnosis, the pop star managed to get back out on stage for six gigs in Europe before his health began to deteriorate once again.
Taking to Instagram to explain his decision to cancel the rest of the world tour, Justin Bieber said in a statement: “As a result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North America leg of the Justice Tour.
“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. This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to the people in Brazil, but after getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realised that I need to make my health the priority right now.”
He confirmed that he is “going to take a break from touring for the time being”.
Bieber added that he is “going to be ok”, but said that he just needs to take some time to “rest and get better”.
His statement concluded: “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.”
According to the NHS, Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by a virus in the facial nerve and is a condition that develops as a complication of the shingles virus – which can emerge in people who have suffered chicken pox as a child.
Some of the possible symptoms include blisters in the ears and on the roof of the mouth, as well as facial weakness.
The condition can be treated with steroids, antiviral medication and facial rehabilitation.
Coca-Cola confirms the Christmas Truck is coming to Manchester this weekend
Coca-Cola has finally confirmed the news we’ve all been waiting for… the Christmas Truck will be in Manchester this weekend.
December is here, the temperatures have plummeted outside, and the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ is nearing closer and closer by the day – but it’s not Christmas until you’ve gone and got a Coca-Cola from the giant red van is it, right?
Well luckily, we won’t have to wait too much longer to get to do that once again.
The soft drinks company confirmed that ‘Holidays Are Coming’ a couple of weeks back, with the UK tour of the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck now well underway, and having visited other major northern cities such as Leeds and Liverpool over the last few days.
And now, Coca-Cola has revealed that the legendary van is coming to Greater Manchester this weekend, and will be stopping off at the Trafford Centre for one day only.
The much-loved festive symbol will be arriving outside the shopping centre tomorrow (Saturday 2 December) from midday right through until 8pm to provide “the ultimate Christmas celebration”, with a whole host of activities planned for families of all ages.
The 2023 Coca-Cola Christmas Truck journey will be packed with “interactive experiences for visitors to immerse themselves in”.
Anyone who heads to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow will first be welcomed by a walk-in, snow-filled bauble that invites them to “step into a winter wonderland for the perfect holiday snapshot”, all before making a stop at the ‘Ho-Ho-Hoop Hut’ to take part in a fun festive game for the chance to win a selection of prizes – including meal-inspired rewards, and recycled Christmas tree decorations.
Families can then finish off the tour by posing for a memorable photo opportunity in front of the iconic Coca-Cola truck.
Visitors are welcome to listen to the Coca-Cola Christmas choir as they perform a set of carols too.
Fancy it then? If you’re ready to kick-start Christmas the right way, then make sure you get yourself down to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow.

Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%
Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%, and they’re now available to get your hands on for a limited time only.
With December officially here, and the festive season nearing closer by the day, most UK supermarkets are rolling out deals left, right, and centre to help shoppers save a few pennies during ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ as the cost of living crisis continues – and it seems like Tesco is absolutely no different.
That’s because the retailer has decided to knock a whopping £12 off the regular price of one-litre bottles of one of the best-loved Christmas tipples.
Fans of the classic Irish cream liqueur drink will probably want to run not walk to their nearest Tesco to stock up on Baileys ready for the big day to arrive, as big bottles of the festive favourite have been reduced from £22 right down to just £10, and are now available to fill your basket with.
But… there’s a bit of a catch (isn’t there always?)
Not only is the over half-price offer only available for a very limited time, and due to expire at the end of next week, but shoppers will only be able to buy the one-litre bottles at the impressive £10 price if they’re Tesco Clubcard customers.
You were probably expecting that’d be the case, right? The supermarket – which is well-known for the savings it offers via is loyalty card scheme all year round – is giving Clubcard users up until Monday 11 December to nip to their nearest branch or head online to the Tesco website and buy as many bottles of Bailey’s as they fancy.
As part of the supermarket’s commitment to “keep prices low” until the end of the year, stuffing, roast potatoes, cranberry sauce, and even tin foil have all seen their prices slashed as the retailer aims to help those struggling to cover costs.
