Shawn Mendes has postponed several dates on his Wonder tour to focus on his mental health.
The singer announced on Friday (July 8th) that he has hit his “breaking point” and will suspend his tour through July 29th.
In a message shared on Instagram, Shawn said, “This breaks my heart to have to say this, but unfortunately I’m going to have to postpone the next three weeks of shows through Uncasville, CT until further notice.”
“I’ve been touring since I was 15 and to be honest it’s always been difficult to be on the road away from friends and family,” he explained.
“After a few years off the road, I was ready to dive back in, but the decision was premature and unfortunately the toll of the road and the pressure has caught up to me and I’ve hit a breaking point.”
Mendes said he spoke with his team and mental health professionals, who advised him to take “time to heal and take care of myself and my mental health, first and foremost.”
“As soon as there are more updates I promise I will let you know love you guys,” he added.
