Austin’s illness couldn’t have come at a worse time — the up and coming singer was set to kick off his headlining tour on Oct. 17, but now fans will have to wait until next year to see him perform, his team confirmed in a statement:

Due to illness, Austin Mahone will unfortunately have to postpone his sold out MTV Artist to Watch Presents Tour to 2014. The singer, who fell ill earlier this week and already postponed his Miami and Orlando shows, is now on strict Dr.’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 W3 The Future. Ticket holders for the sold out tour will be notified of the new 2014 dates and all details as soon as possible.

Austin’s mom, Michele, sent a series of tweets to his followers:

So sad! We hope Austin gets well soon.

Austin posted an Instagram picture of himself in a hospital gown holding on to an IV drip on Oct. 17, with the caption, “I’ve never felt so bad.”

“Mahone was rushed to the hospital at 9 a.m. Thursday morning,” a source close to Austin tells People. “It’s unclear what the singer’s condition is at this time.”

“We can confirm that he was admitted to the hospital this morning but are not confirming any other details,” Austin’s rep tells Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Thankfully, Austin has his fans’ love and support — the hashtag #prayforaustin is trending on Twitter.
