Austin Mahone is in the hospital after feeling sick for several days. His condition is unknown.

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.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
