Shawn Mendes has canceled his Wonder world tour after just seven performances, with the singer citing mental health issues as the reason he is ending the tour.

The 23-year-old singer is canceling over 80 shows. He wrote on Instagram that he had made the decision “that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally to ground myself and come back stronger.”

This comes two weeks after he canceled three weeks worth of shows for the same reasons.

Here’s how the “Stitches” singer broke the news to fans.

What Shawn Mendes Said About His Tour Being Canceled

On July 27, Shawn Mendes shared a statement on his Instagram. The statement read in full:

“As you guys know, I had to postpone the past few weeks of shows since I wasn’t totally prepared for the toll that 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.”

Mendes continued: “I unfortunately have to cancel the rest of the tour dates in North America, and the U.K. / Europe. We were hopeful that I might be able to pick up with the rest of my dates after some much needed time off, but at this time I have to put my health as my first priority.

“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 [two heart emojis].”

This comes after Mendes postponed three weeks of shows on July 10.

At the time, he wrote on Twitter: “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.”

He later said: “The toll of the road and the pressure has caught up to me and I’ve hit a breaking point.”
