'Too challenging to proceed': 'This Is Us' star Mandy Moore cancels tour amid pregnancy
In March 2022, ‘This Is Us’ star Mandy Moore announced that she will be touring North America this spring-summer to promote her latest album ‘In Real Life’. The first show took place at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 10 and since then, the singer-turned-songwriter has done 12 back-to-back shows on the ongoing tour. However, it seems the singer might not be able to continue performing because of her recently announced pregnancy.
On June 3, the singer-turned-actress announced on Instagram that she is expecting her second child with her husband, musician Taylor Goldsmith. The star wrote that she is deeply “grateful and excited” to start this “seminal chapter” of her life. At the time, Moore also noted that touring will be much “different” than what she expected. But it looks like she has finally made her decision to get off the road to focus on her health.
On Tuesday, the musician announced that she is canceling the remaining part of her 2022 shows to focus on her baby’s health. She made the difficult decision to end her tour early in a written statement shared on her official Instagram profile. In her statement, the 38-year-old actress revealed that it was getting more and more “challenging” for her to be on the tour amid her pregnancy. She wrote, “Friends, It is with a heavy heart and much consideration that I have to let you all know that I am canceling my remaining show dates in 2022. It has been an honor and an absolute dream to return to the stage again this past month, performing for all of you.”
Moore also stated that she didn’t know she was pregnant when they announced the dates and thought that she could “power through” the tour dates, but it was getting too “challenging” for her to say on road. She added, “The way we are traveling (long hours on the bus and not getting proper rest) has caught up, taken its toll, and made it feel too challenging to proceed.”
She thanked the fans for all the support and reassured them that she will be back with a bang. “Thank you for all of your support along the way and thank you in advance for respecting my decision. I can't wait to get back out there soon to bring this music and show your way!!” Moore concluded.
‘In Real Life’ tour was the first tour for the ‘Candy’ singer in over a decade, as she has been focusing on her acting career for the past few years. Her new album, titled ‘In Real Life’, received positive reviews from the critics as well as listeners, claiming that the album perfectly showcases Moore’s growth as a singer and songwriter.
On the other hand, she recently wrapped up shooting for the NBC drama ‘This Is Us’ and it is being reported that Moore might be a strong contender for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series accolade. She received a lot of praise for her acting in the final season of the show and fans demanded that she should be recognized for her stupendous work.
