Shawn Mendes Postpones World Tour To Focus On Mental Health

Shawn Mendes has said he is postponing upcoming shows on his world tour due to mental health issues.

“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 wrote on social media.
“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.”

“After a few years off the road, I felt like I was ready to dive back in, but that 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,” he added.

The “Señorita” singer said that after speaking with his team and health professionals, he needs to take some time to heal and take care of himself and his mental health, “first and foremost.”

Mendes promised to let his fans know about any updates later.

Dates through July 29 will be affected by the postponement.

Mendes did not specify if shows slated to be held in St. Paul, Minn; Omaha, Neb.; Milwaukee; Rosemont, Ill.; St. Louis; Cleveland; Pittsburgh; Charlotte, N.C.; Raleigh, N.C.; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C; and Uncasville, Ct. will be rescheduled.
