Shawn Mendes Cancels Tour Due to Mental Health Challenges

Shawn Mendes canceled the rest of his tour about two weeks after he postponed concert dates to focus on his mental health.

Mendes announced on Instagram that he is canceling the rest of his tour, saying that he “wasn’t totally prepared for the toll that being back on the road would take on (him)” and decided to cancel the tour after consulting with an “incredible group of health professionals,”.

“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. It has become more clear that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger,” Mendes said.

Mendes added that he will still make new music and “will be back soon” as he is prioritizing his health.

“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,” Mendes said.
