Shawn Mendes Needs A Break
The Senorita singer took to Instagram to open up to his fans about his decision. Shawn Mendes wrote:
“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. 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.”
The Wonder Tour started in Oregon on June 27 and was scheduled to continue till its end on July 29. But now with the last three weeks of the shows been postponed, Shawn Mendes added that he needed some time to heal and take care of himself:
“After speaking with my team and health professionals, I need to take some time to heal and take care of myself and my mental health, first and foremost. As soon as there are more updates, I promise I will let you know love you guys.”
Last November, Shawn Mendes parted ways with his Senorita co-singer Camila Cabello after 2 years of love and relationship. Soon after he released a song ‘It’ll Be Okay’ addressing this issue and love and sympathies started to pour in for the singer.
