TORONTO STOP AMONG FOUR JUST-ANNOUNCED NORTH AMERICAN DATES
Due to overwhelming demand, Shawn Mendes has added four new dates in Mexico, The United States, and Canada to his first-ever arena world tour, now including August 11 at Air Canada Centre in Shawn’s hometown of Toronto.
The previously announced Illuminate World Tour will kick off April 27 in Europe before going on to North and South America. The North American leg of the tour will run from July through September, making Canadian stops at the previously announced Rogers Arena in Vancouver and Centre Bell in Montreal.
Shawn is touring in support of his sophomore album Illuminate, released September 2016 via Island Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Illuminate debuted at #1 in both Canada and the US and features hit singles “Treat You Better” and “Mercy”. “Mercy” has been certified Platinum and has reached Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US. Illuminate was received with critical acclaim, featuring on The Los Angeles Times’ 10 Best Albums of 2016 and at #5 on The Associated Press’ Top Albums of 2016, with Billboard declaring “it is becoming clear that Mendes found his true calling at a young age, with Illuminate marking the beginning of the next exciting chapter for the artist.”
