Shawn Mendes has canceled the remaining dates of his “Wonder: The World Tour” to focus on his mental health, the singer announced Wednesday (Jul. 27, 2022).

The 23-year-old singer postponed some of the gigs earlier this month to focus on his mental health but has now confirmed on social media that the tour has been scrapped altogether as he priorities his wellbeing.

Shawn wrote a heartfelt message to his fans: “As you guys know, I had to postpone the past few weeks of shows since I wasn’t totally prepared for the toll of being back on the road would take on me.

“I started this tour excited to finally get back to playing live after a long break due to the pandemic, but the reality is I was not at all ready for how difficult touring would be after this time away.

“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.”

The ‘Stitches’ hitmaker continued: “I unfortunately have to cancel the rest of the tour dates in North America, and the UK/Europe.

“We were hopeful that I might be able to pick up with the rest of the dates after some much needed time off, but at this time I have to put my health as my first priority.”

Shawn assured his fans that he will still be making music and confessed that he felt heartbroken to let those who had tickets for the gigs down.

He said: “This doesn’t mean I won’t be making new music, and I can’t wait to see you on tour in the future. I know you all have been waiting so long to see these shows, and it breaks my heart to tell you this but I promise I will be back as soon as I’ve taken the right time to heal. I love you all and thank you all so much for supporting me and sticking by me on this journey.”
