Times have been really hard and draining. We never know what someone else is going through and a lot of time the time, even when they tell us, we still don’t know what they are going through.
A lot of times we look at celebrities and we think that they have the most amazing life and time. But we need to respect that they are still human and we don’t know their lives.
We have to commend them for putting themselves first.
We’re definitely commending Shawn Mendes on putting himself first. The singer has canceled the rest of his tour.
In an Instagram post the singer wrote, “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 all 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. I unfortunately have to cancel the rest of the tour dates in North America, and the UK/Europe,” he continued.
He finished off by saying, “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. 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.”
We’re wishing Shawn the best and we’ll be ready to see him on the road when he’s ready to get back out there.
