Pop Fizz: Shawn Mendes Cancels Rest of Tour Citing Mental Health Issues


That’s it for Shawn Mendes’s tour. He cancelled three weeks of shows to get himself together. But now he says he needs more time. He’s scuttled everything. The promoters must be livid, as well as the musicians and crews. But it’s more important at age 23 to figure out who you are and what you want out of life. God speed.

PS Among the dates gone are in Toronto, Shawn’s hometown, plus Boston and New York and all of Europe. Ouch!
