Shawn Mendes cancels his world tour including 3 SoCal shows to focus on his mental health

Singer Shawn Mendes canceled his world tour that included shows in Los Angeles and San Diego on Wednesday, saying he needed to prioritize his mental health before returning to the road in the future.

Mendes, who performed at iHeartRadio’s KIIS FM Wango Tango in June, had two shows at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Sept. 9-10 and another at Pechanga Arena in San Diego on Sept. 19.

“As you guys know, I had to postpone a few weeks of shows since I wasn’t totally prepared for the toll that being back on the road would take on me,” Mendes wrote in a statement released on his social media accounts.

“I started this tour excited to finally get back to play 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,” he continued. “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.”
