In the meantime, Shawn Mendes wants to put his efforts on mental health and that means he’ll be taking a short break from Wonder world tour.
The singer’s health is more important than a performance, and he took time off to focus on it first.
“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,” Mendes announced on Instagram Friday.
“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 said. Although he felt “ready to five back in” following “a few years off the road,” Mendes wrote that 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 turned to “take some to heal and take care of myself and my mental health.” The musician ended, “As soon as there are more updates, I promise I will let you know.”
Mendes started his world tour in June in Oregon to advertise his fourth album, Wonder, in 2020. He was set to carry on the tour at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota on Saturday.
Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C. are some places where Mendes canceled shows.
The tour is scheduled to continue at the end of July in Canada and stretch all over Europe, ultimately ending up in Italy or France.
