Austin Mahone Hospitalized, Postpones Florida Shows

Austin Mahone was rushed to the hospital this morning with the flu.

Mahone shared a sickly photo on Instagram with the message: “I’ve never felt so bad.”

Mahone was supposed to kick off his tour with a show tonight in Miami. The YouTube sensation announced today that he will be postponing the Miami show as well as the Orlando show on Friday night.

The 17-year-old singer has toured with Taylor Swift, but he has never headlined his own tour. Tonight would have been Mahone’s first solo show.

Mahone told MTV: “I’ve been in the dance rehearsals for a couple weeks now just getting ready. I’ve gotten more dancers. I’ve gotten more songs I’m adding to it, so you know we got like lasers and lights and smoke… And it’s gonna be a huge production, so I’m really excited… so it’s gonna be a really fun tour, and I can’t wait.”

Unfortunately, Austin Mahone will have to wait a few days to kick off his tour.

The singer writes on Twitter: “It’s Doctor’s orders… I have a bad flu 103 fever and I can’t move. If I could go I would… I can’t believe this is happening its my first tour I’m so upset. I feel like I’m letting you all down.”

According to USA Today, the Miami show has been rescheduled for Oct. 22, and the Orlando show has been postponed until Nov. 1.
