Sam Fender Cancels US Gigs Due To Mental Health — Music News

Words: George Millington | September 14, 2022

Because of difficulties with his mental health, Sam Fender has had to cancel his planned performances in the United States.

Furthermore, the vocalist of ‘Seventeen Going Under’ said the following on Instagram: “”It seems completely hypocritical of me to advocate discussion on mental health and write songs about it if I don’t take the time to look after my own mental health.”

“I’ve neglected myself for over a year now and haven’t dealt with things that have deeply affected me. It’s impossible to do this work on myself while on the road, and it’s exhausting feigning happiness and wellness for the sake of business.”
