The “What About Love” crooner informed his fans that he had a 103-degree fever, was not able to move, and could not leave the hospital(!) under doctor’s orders. And that was just Day 1.
His mother, Michele Mahone, then revealed (via Austin’s Twitter account) further unsettling details, “Hey Mahomies, it’s @michelemahone. Austin is very ill. Unfortunately, we are going to have to postpone the entire MTV Artist to Watch tour. Austin is very upset about this & we want to say we are sorry to all the Mahomies & their parents who have made arrangements to come out. We feel very bad but we have no choice but to POSTPONE the tour for now. Thank you for your prayers #PrayforAustin.”
Just in case you needed proof, Austin posted the above Instagram picture in his hospital room, along with the caption: “I’ve never felt so bad.”
Members of his camp say that ticket-holders for the tour will be notified of the new 2014 dates, as well as more details once they get a better understanding of the situation. Until then, we wish you well, Austin!
In better times, we spent an entire day with Austin Mahone!
