Mendes opened up about his mental health on his song “In My Blood,” as the lyric “Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in/Sometimes I feel like giving up” reveals his struggle with anxiety, according to Genius. In April, he shared a message on Twitter, saying, “Honestly, even with so much success, I still have a hard time feeling like I’m not failing.”
Although the young pop star had fun en route to her “Wonder” world tour, she realized she had to put her health first. “It breaks my heart to have to say this, but unfortunately I will have to postpone the next three weeks of shows in Uncasville, CT until further notice,” Mendes said in a statement on July 8 (via E! News). . He went on to say that he felt ready to perform, but underestimated the work the tour would take and stated that he reached a “breaking point”.
According to an interview with Billboard in March, he’s connected to spirituality to help with his mental health, saying it’s “a part of my life that’s so much bigger than I really seem.” The outlet also mentioned that his tour was his biggest yet and, unfortunately, it may have been too big for the young singer to handle.
Shawn Mendes cancels the rest of his Wonder world tour
Although Shawn Mendes left fans hoping that he would tour again, unfortunately that is not the case now.
“As you know, I had to postpone the last few weeks of shows because I wasn’t fully prepared for the cost it would take to get back on the road,” Mendes posted in a statement on Twitter on July 27.
He mentioned that he has been working diligently with his team and healthcare professionals, and they concluded that he needed more time to focus on himself. “Unfortunately, I have to cancel the rest of the North American and UK/Europe tour dates,” the singer continued.
Mendes stated that although he has to cancel his tour, he is still working on new music. The “Stitches” singer mentioned to GQ in 2020 how he shares more of his personal life in his music, saying, “I can speak to you clearly because I’m not dancing around my true self.
I’m just being me with you.” And that’s beauty. And that’s success.” We look forward to hearing what Mendes is working on while he takes a break from touring.
