ILLUMINATE WORLD TOUR KICKS OFF APRIL 27
20 April 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Today, on the brink of kicking off his arena headlining Illuminate World Tour, multi-platinum singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes releases brand-new single “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” via Island Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Shawn revealed to Billboard, “The minute I wrote this song I knew I wanted to get it out before my tour started, to give fans something new and fresh in addition to everything from Illuminate. I can’t wait to perform it on the tour, and for everyone to hear it.” The single was written by Shawn in collaboration with Scott Harris, Teddy Geiger and Geoff Warburton, and produced by Teddy Geiger.
Shawn’s first-ever headlining arena world tour kicks off next Thursday, April 27 in Glasgow. The massive tour spans 61 dates across 24 countries.
