Shawn Mendes has made the brave and important decision to prioritise his mental well-being and overall health.
The singer has announced he is cancelling the rest of his “Wonder” world tour dates across the US, UK and Europe. In a message posted on socials, he explains the tough decision:
“After speaking more with my team and working with an incredible group of health professionals, it has become more clear that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger.”
Shawn had initially announced he would be postponing three weeks worth of shows.
He now says he’ll be back when he’s taken the “right time to heal” and will continue making new music in the meantime.
