Back in January, Mendes postponed the UK and European leg of his ‘Wonder’ world tour to 2023, citing the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Canadian pop star was supposed to hit the road in March. His UK dates would have seen him take in London (April 21), Birmingham (27), Glasgow (29), Sheffield (May 2) and Manchester (4). However, Mendes later revealed that these dates would have to be postponed until next year.

“This was a really difficult decision to make, but unfortunately we have to reschedule the UK & EU tour from 2022 to 2023,” he said in a statement. “With all of the logistical, travel and venue restrictions still uncertain in Europe due to the pandemic, we were forced to make the tough decision of moving the tour leg to the end of the tour when we are confident we are able to travel and can put on the best possible show we want to, safely and at full capacity.”

Mendes concluded: “I’m so sorry I won’t be able to see you guys sooner. But I am working on a ton of new music for you all! I’m excited for you to hear.”

Last year, Mendes teamed up with Camilo for a remix of the Columbian hitmaker’s song ‘Kesi’.
