Shawn Mendes postponed some dates of his ‘Wonder: The World Tour’

To let fans know he is taking a break from his tour, Mendes posted a note on social media. In the announcement, Mendes explained why he is postponing certain concert dates.

Mendes’ note to fans reads:

“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 Ive hit a breaking point. 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.”
