Celebrity singer Shawn Mendes announced that he was postponing his Wonder Tour for the next three weeks as he wanted to focus on his mental health. In his Friday social media post, the Canadian singer expressed regret as well as promised to provide updates about his tour. Wonder is Mendes’ fourth studio album and was released in the last month of 2020.
Shawn Mendes wrote on Instagram that he was heartbroken by the announcement he had to make about postponement shows that had been scheduled to take place “through Uncasville, CT until further notice.”
The 23-year old singer also mentioned that he had been touring since he was 15 years old and it had always been difficult for him to be away from his family and friends when he was on the road. He added that he had been “off the road” the past few years and had thought that he was ready to tour again. He added that the decision to tour was “premature” and that he had “hit a breaking point” as the toll of the road as well as the pressure had caught up with him.
The celebrity singer said that he had spoken to his team and health professionals and knew that he had to take care of himself and his mental health, “first and foremost.” The Treat You Better singer also promised to let his 69 million followers know when there would be more updates. Love and support poured in for the young Canadian singer on social media from hundreds of thousands of friends, followers and peers.
Mendes’ Wonder Tour began on June 27, in Portland, Oregon. It was scheduled to continue through October 2022 in the U.S. It was expected to move to Europe and the U.K., in May 2023. Wonder is the last studio album from the celebrity singer, to date. Although Shawn Mendes did not release an album after dropping this one in December 2020, he dropped a single, in December 2021 called “It’ll Be Okay.” The “Stitches” hitmaker is also the star in a musical film titled “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.” The animated film has an October 7 release.
