Shawn Mendes postponing tour to focus on mental health

The Canadian singer-songwriter had been due to play a gig in Saint Paul, Minnesota on Saturday but in a statement released on Friday, he confirmed he would be rescheduling his next 12 performances. "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."
