Shawn Mendes has anxiety sometimes when he’s on tour. He’s just 18, and he’s in the middle of a world-tour. Being on stage every night gets stressful, even for seasoned pros who do it ALL THE TIME. It just gets to you sometimes.
Anyway, he credits John Mayer (who he’s currently touring with) for helping him handle his anxiety. Shawn says that John helps him keep calm when he feels anxiety kicking in. Shawn says he can call John and just have a regular conversation with him, and John just has a way of talking that helps him calm down and relax.
Watching John on tour has also taught Shawn “how to be away from home, how to be my own person on the road, how to spend time with people,” he says.
Sounds like John is a really good dude!
