Mandy Moore has canceled her “In Real Life” tour due to her pregnancy.
The singer shared a message on Instagram Tuesday telling her fans that she felt it was best to cancel her remaining concert dates in 2022 as she and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, prepare for the arrival of their second son.
“It was an honor and an absolute dream to be back on stage last month, performing for all of you,” she began “with a heavy heart.”
Moore went on to say that she initially thought she could handle the tour in the meantime, but eventually realized she had underestimated the effect it would have on her.
“When we booked these shows I wasn’t pregnant and although I really thought I could pull it off, the way we travel (long hours on the bus and not getting enough rest) has caught up, made some havoc and made it feel too hard to continue,” she wrote. “I know I have to put my family and my health (and my baby’s health) first and the best place for me right now is home.”
The ‘This Is Us’ star assured ticket holders that they would be “refunded at the place of purchase”.
“In Real Life” was the “Candy” singer’s first tour in more than a decade, as she’s taken the past few years to focus on her acting career and starting a family.
Moore, 38, and Goldsmith, 36, wed in November 2018 and welcomed their first son, August “Gus,” in February 2021.
The actress announced earlier this month that she was pregnant again, captioning a Instagram post“Baby Boy Goldsmith #2 is coming this fall! Gus is going to be the BEST big brother!!”
She then shared a photo of her baby bump on Instagram, revealing that she “was really sick” during her first trimester.
Just before announcing the tour’s cancellation, Moore revealed that Goldsmith, who is the lead singer of folk band Dawes, tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of their show in Nashville on Sunday, forcing him to perform in quarantine. in his lodge.
“But right after the first song, Mandy welcomed everyone and said, ‘By the way, if you were wondering where that solo came from…’ and laid it all out. I was able to say ‘hi’ in the back and everyone laughed.”
