Singer Shawn Mendes has cancelled the remainder of his Wonder World Tour to focus on his health. Earlier this month, Shawn Mendes postponed the tour by three weeks citing mental health reasons.
However, it seems the Senorita hitmaker is still not recovered well. In a heartfelt note to his fans, Mendes explained he was not fully prepared for the toll that being back on the road would take on him.
“As you guys know, I had to postpone the past few weeks of shows since I wasn’t totally prepared for the toll of being back on the road would take on me.
“I started this tour excited to finally get back to playing live after a long break due to the pandemic, but the reality is I was not at all ready for how difficult touring would be after this time away.
“After speaking more with my team and working with an incredible group of health professionals, it has become clearer that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally to ground myself and come back stronger.”
“I, unfortunately, have to cancel the rest of the tour dates in North America and the UK/Europe.
“We were hopeful that I might be able to pick up with the rest of the dates after some much-needed time off, but at this time, I have to put my health as my priority.”
The 23-year-old promised his fans that he would continue making music and make a comeback soon.
“This doesn’t mean I won’t be making new music, and I can’t wait to see you on tour in the future. I know you all have been waiting so long to see these shows, and it breaks my heart to tell you this, but I promise I will be back as soon as I’ve taken the right time to heal. I love you all, and thank you so much for supporting me and sticking by me on this journey,” Mendes said.
