Canadian singer Shawn Mendes says he’s pausing his world tour for three weeks to focus on his mental health.

The Pickering native posted a statement on social media Friday night, saying that a string of U.S. tour dates would be postponed so he can “heal and take care” of himself.

Mendes said he consulted with his team and health professionals before making the call.

The pop singer began his Wonder world tour on June 27, the first of more than 80 scheduled tour dates that wind through North America into the fall before heading to Europe in 2023.

Mendes is scheduled to perform in Toronto on July 31.
