“American Idol” Fan and judges’ favorite Alejandro “Scarypoolparty” Aranda has postponed the remainder of his “Unplugged” tour dates just weeks after he opened up about the possibility of stepping away from music.
“Unfortunately we are postponing the remaining unplugged tour dates,” he wrote on Instagram. “Contact your point of sale for more information. I promise to be back on the road very soon.”
The singer-songwriter also posted about the postponement on his Instagram Stories.
“I know today was bad news for the shows,” he wrote. “But I just wanted to say that @cody.dear and @maxmusic put a smile on my face.”
He added that he would be returning to Los Angeles, but hoped to tour the East Coast “very soon.”
Aranda considers leaving music altogether
In a now-deleted tweet, Aranda shared that he was considering leaving the music industry.
“Sometimes I feel like my opportunity to be a full-time musician/artist is dwindling,” he wrote at the time. “Maybe it’s time to reconsider your music career. Maybe go to cooking school or try to open a coffee shop! Who knows!! Legit to only have thoughts late at night.”
Aranda has been open about his struggles with touring in the past. In December 2019 he apologized to fans via Twitter after the cancellation of a show in London.
“I deal with a lot of sleep deprivation and I can’t put it off because it’s really affecting my health now,” he said at the time. “Coming after ‘American Idol’, having sold out my first tour and just back from a fall tour and recording an album, I couldn’t ask for more from a dream come true. But honestly I need to get help and find a better way to heal.”
Fans are worried about Aranda
Fans took to the Instagram comments to offer their support and share their concerns for Aranda.
“Hope you are well! send love”, one person wrote.
Another commented“Hope you’re all right.”
Others said they sent congratulations to the artist.
“I send you a dear brother. You are awesome. But you don’t owe anyone anything. Just do it. We’ll be here anyway.” commented one fan.
Aranda released a new album in 2021
