The “He Went to Jared” singer shared that his extreme anxiety had caused him to seek hospital treatment in an Instagram post Wednesday.
“I need to be honest with everyone for a second,” Hardy wrote. “I’ve been dealing with some serious anxiety since the bus accident last year, and over the last two weeks, it has taken control of my life. It’s caused me to suffer many panic attacks, which have landed me in the hospital.”
The singer said he needed “a moment to focus on me and to make myself better for my wife, family and you, the fans.” According to his post, he canceled his Mockingbird and The Crow Fall tour shows for Oct. 5 and 7.
Hardy said that tickets for the two shows — set to take place in Simpsonville, South Carolina, and Brandon, Mississippi —will be refunded.
The singer noted that the Georgia Rodeo show — set to take place on Oct. 6 in Winterville, Georgia — will be pushed to April 12, 2024.
Hardy said he plans to return “focused” for his tour on Oct. 12.”
“Thank you for understanding,” he finished his post. “See you soon.”
