Singer Shawn Mendes has announced that he will cancel his tour Miracle: The World Tour. In an exercise of sincerity, the 23-year-old Canadian has admitted in a statement published on his social media that he doesn’t feel ready to start performing again. “After discussing it with my team and working with an incredible group of healthcare professionals, I’ve realized that I need to take the time that I personally never took to settle down and come back stronger,” explained the star. Mendes has already postponed the concerts of trip which were planned for the last few weeks for the same reasons as announced in another text published on July 9th.
This has been an unfortunate tour for the singer and his fans, as the pandemic has already forced him to cancel his originally planned March 14 start in Copenhagen, Denmark. Madrid, Barcelona and Bilbao were to be the three Spanish cities where the singer would perform. Mendes has apologized for not being able to keep his fans happy. “I know you’ve all been waiting a long time to see these concerts and it breaks my heart to tell you this, but I promise to return once I’ve had enough time to recover,” said the Canadian.
Mendes has been transparent about his worries and bad experiences privately and professionally for years. In 2018 he explained that the lyrics of one of his songs, in my bloodIt was about his anxiety attacks. Later in an interview with the magazine wonderland, He argued that one of the keys that helped him improve in a difficult mental and emotional situation was “realizing that something is wrong.” In another conversation with the newspaper GuardianHe admitted that due to exhaustion and stress, he seriously considered retiring.

Known for hits like treat you better Y fail (the latter in collaboration with his ex-partner, the singer Camila Cabello, with whom he spent two years), Mendes already has a discography consisting of four titles: handwritten (2015), enlighten (2016), Shawn Mendez (2018) and Wonder (2020).
