'Unfortunately I have to cancel the remaining dates on my Don't Talk Tour,' the One Call Away vocalist said. 'This is the last thing I want because I love being on the road performing and meeting every one of you. You are the reason I can do what I love most for a living and I am so thankful.'
The Billboard Music Award winner explained that he's been 'extremely sick pushing through these dates' on the tour, without enough recovery time.
The YouTube sensation said 'resting and taking time off the road is the only way I can get better and start performing for you again,' vowing to his fans he'd 'do whatever [he] can to make it up to' them.

'I love you so much,' Puth told his fans, adding he was 'deeply sorry' to disappoint any of them.
The timing of the layoff couldn't be worse for the We Don't Talk Anymore singer, whose career is on the upswing in a big way.
On Saturday, he was part of CBS Radio's We Can Survive Concert, a Hollywood Bowl show that included Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Pitbull and OneRepublic, among others. Puth had a half-hour set at the show, which raised money for the Young Survival Coalition, a breast cancer charity.

The singer had to cancel a number of dates earlier this month as he battled the flu. Appearing on On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Puth explained how miserable he felt in his final show prior to an October 7 stint in the hospital.
'I finished playing See You Again and I got off stage and I'm like, "I feel like I'm going to pass out right now,"' said Puth, who noted that his mother Debra was close by and on top of the situation.
'She's in the driveway with medication in her car, in park, and ready to go,' he said. 'She's like, "We're going to the damn doctor right now."'
Puth said he underwent treatment for six hours after doctors said he was suffering from dehydration.
