“It breaks my heart to have to say this but unfortunately I will have to postpone the next three weeks of shows until further notice. I’ve been touring since I was 15 and to be honest it’s always been hard to be on the road away from friends and family .”
“After a few years off the road, I felt like I was ready to come back, but this decision was premature. And unfortunately the road routine and pressure got to me and I reached my limit,” said the singer.
“After talking to my team and healthcare providers, I need to take time to heal and take care of myself and my mental health first and foremost.”
Shawn ended the statement by promising to let his fans know when he has news. “As soon as I have more updates, I promise to let you know. I love you.”
