Justin Bieber finally returned to the stage Sunday in Italy after he walked away from his world tour two months ago after suffering partial face paralysis.

In a series of images that surfaced on Twitter, the 28-year-old singer can be seen performing for thousands of fans at the Lucca Summer Festival smiling and singing to the crowd, Fox News reported.

The “Baby” hitmaker revealed in June that he had to leave the tour after being diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a rare disorder that left him paralyzed on one side of his face. But his condition has apparently progressed to the point that he can perform again.

Last month, the singer’s rep told Variety magazine that the “Justice” world tour was back on and would resume. The first show listed on Bieber’s website was the Lucca Summer Festival. The concert dates that followed included several more shows in Europe in August. Bieber is then scheduled to head to South America, South Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand before returning to Europe in early 2023.

The pop superstar made headlines in June when he revealed in an Instagram video message the shocking reason for canceling a handful of shows after suffering from “full paralysis” on one side of his face, as The Daily Wire previously reported. The rare disease is connected to having the chicken pox/shingles virus.

“Hey everyone, Justin here, I wanted to update you guys on what’s been going on,” Bieber shared, in part. “Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome, and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.”

“So, there is full paralysis on this side of my face,” he added. “So, for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically obviously not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious as you can see.”

The entire time Bieber was speaking to fans in the three-minute-long video, one side of his face didn’t move at all, while on the other side, his mouth moved up and down and his eye blinked.

The “Ghost” hitmaker is married to 25-year-old supermodel Hailey Bieber.
