Shawn Mendes Cancels Concert Due To Illness


Shawn Mendes cancelled his concert Saturday night in São Paulo, Brazil on doctors’ orders.

“I woke up feeling ill, and went to the doctor, to find out I have laryngitis and a sinus infection which has caused swelling of my vocal cords,” the 21-year-old Canadian singer explained on social media.

“It breaks my heart to do this but my doctors told me I can not perform tonight or it would risk long term damage to my voice.”

Mendes apologized to fans and promised to “make it up to you next time I’m back in South America.”

Saturday’s concert was supposed to be the second of two in São Paulo – and the first one Mendes has cancelled since he launched his world tour in March. He is is scheduled to perform on Dec. 3 in Rio de Janeiro and then do nine more shows before the tour ends in Mexico City.
