Shawn Mendes is taking a break from his Wonder tour to focus on his mental health.

On Friday, the 23-year-old “Señorita” singer announced that he is pushing back the dates of his upcoming shows for his Wonder world tour.

“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,” he wrote.

He added that he’s “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.”

In a statement shared on both Instagram and Twitter Friday night, the Canadian singer told fans that he had “hit a breaking point” – and needed to postpone concerts through Uncasville, Connecticut, originally scheduled on July 29, until further notice.

Shawn has always made a point of being open with fans about his struggles with mental health. In April this year, he shared a candid post on Twitter about his struggles with uncertainty and overwhelm.

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,” he concluded.
