Shawn Mendes has announced he’s postponing the next three weeks of his tour dates due to mental health reasons.

The singer issued the following statement via his social media channels:

“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. 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.”

We send our well-wishes to Mendes as he takes time to tend to his mental health and hope to see him return to performing in three weeks.
