Shawn Mendes is postponing his tour to focus on his mental health

"I felt like I was ready to come back, but this decision was premature," Shawn Mendes said.
Shawn Mendes has announced that he will be taking a three-week break from his 'Wonder: The World Tour' to focus on his mental health.

"It breaks my heart to have to say this, but unfortunately I will have to postpone the next three weeks of concerts until further notice," Shawn Mendes wrote in a message posted on his Instagram and Twitter accounts.

“I've been touring since I was 15 and to be honest it's always been hard being on the road away from friends and family. After a few years away from travelling, I felt I was ready to come back, but that decision was premature and unfortunately the price of traveling and the pressure got to me and I reached a breaking point,” he continued.

"After speaking with my team and health professionals, I need to take some time to recover and take care of myself and my mental health, first and foremost. As soon as more information is available, I promise to let you know. I love you guys," the 23-year-old singer concluded.

Shawn Mendes' Wonder: The World Tour kicked off on June 27 in Portland, Oregon and is set to continue in the US through October before moving to the UK and Europe in May 2023.

Shawn Mendes was scheduled to perform on Saturday night, July 9 at the St. Paul in Minnesota, and as he said in his message, the break will affect all scheduled concerts until July 29 in Uncasville, California.

Among others, their concerts are postponed in cities such as St. Louis, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Philadelphia and Washington.

In the comments of the post, fellow artists such as Maggie Rogers, Giveon, Brett Eldredge, Remi Wolf and more showed their support for Shawn Mendes.
