Teen singing star Austin Mahone, who was scheduled to perform a sold out show at Pittsburgh's Stage AE on Oct. 29, has had to cancel his tour.

On Thursday, the singer, 17, shared a photo of himself on Instagram in a hospital gown with the caption: “I've never felt so bad.” Earlier he tweeted, “I have a bad flu 103 fever and I can't move.”

Later in the day, the singer's camp issued an official statement saying he is postponing until 2014 the MTV Artist to Watch Presents Tour.

The statement said Mahone “is now on strict Dr.'s orders to stay on rest and will need to reschedule all dates on the tour. ... Ticket holders for the sold out tour will be notified of the new 2014 dates and all details as soon as possible.”

“I can't believe this is happening its my first tour I'm so upset. I feel like I'm letting you all down,” wrote Mahone on Twitter.
