On Thursday, Oct. 17, Mahone posted an Instagram photo of himself in a hospital gown. "I've never felt so bad," he wrote in the accompanying caption. The "What About Love" singer shared with his so-called "Mahomies" on Twitter earlier this week that he had to reschedule his Miami and Orlando shows. 

"Its Doctor’s orders," he tweeted. "I have a bad flu 103 fever and I can’t move. If I could go I would."

The teen pop sensation's MTV Artist to Watch tour -- a 10-city event originally scheduled to kick off in Miami Thursday -- was postponed that evening, per Michele "Mama" Mahone. "Austin is very upset about this & we want to say we are sorry to all the Mahomies & their parents who have made arrangements to come out," Mama Mahone shared with her son's 4.4 million followers. MTV said in a statement that the sold-out tour would be postponed to 2014, adding that ticket holders would be notified once exact dates were confirmed.

Despite the cancellation, Austin's fans quickly expressed support for the "What About Love" singer via social media. #PrayForAustin rapidly became a trending topic on Twitter at the urging of Mama Mahone.
