Austin Mahone has quit his appearance at the MTV Artist to Watch Presents Tour to 2014.
The 17-year-old singer is very ill at the moment with a 103-degree fever and checked himself into hospital on Thursday morning.
Later that day his mother Michele took over his Twitter account to personally tell fans.
'Hey Mahomies its @michelemahone Austin is very ill. Unfortunately we are going to have to postpone the entire MTV Artist to Watch Tour,' she posted.
"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."
Austin revealed he had "never felt so bad" alongside an Instagram photograph that day, as he had to delay stops in Miami and Orlando, Florida. He was supposed to visit 10 cities from Thursday.
"Due to illness Austin Mahone will unfortunately have to postpone his sold-out MTV Artist to Watch Presents Tour to 2014," MTV confirmed in a statement. "The singer... is now on strict doctor's orders to stay on rest and will need to reschedule all dates on the tour.
'The tour featured support artists Becky G, Midnight Red, and We 3 The Future. Ticket holders for the sold out tour will be notified of the new 2014 dates and all details as soon as possible."
