He was booked to perform at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena next month…

It’s official: Justin Bieber’s Dubai tour dates have been cancelled. The popstar took to social media earlier this month to announce he was postponing his Justice world tour to ‘make his health a priority’, although local organisers were still awaiting confirmation that this would impact his shows in Dubai on October 8 and 9.

But now the shows are officially cancelled, what about those who had tickets? Coca-Cola Arena has clarified that all tickets will be automatically refunded to the same card used for the transaction. It will take up to 21 days.

Last week, Justin Bieber told fans: “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.”

Thanking fans for their support, he finished the post with “I love you all passionately!”

Earlier this year Justin Bieber took to social media to share that he’d been diagnosed with a rare syndrome called Ramsay-Hunt, which partially paralysed the singer’s face and forced him to cancel several shows on the North American leg of his world tour. This summer, he returned to Europe to get back to performing sell-out concerts for fans, successfully putting on six dates.

However as he began the South American leg of his Justice World Tour with a performance at Rock in Rio last weekend, the Baby hitmaker he said he came off stage and ‘exhaustion overtook me,’ forcing Bieber to make the tough decision to postpone his forthcoming concerts.

Justin Bieber was originally due to perform only one night in Dubai on October 8, but due to overwhelming demand a second date – October 9 – was added.
