Supporting the release of his self-titled third album, multi-platinum and chart-topping singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes hits the road in 2019 on a global arena tour. Shawn Mendes: The Tour marks his third global headline tour, following his sold out 2017 arena trek, kicking off on March 7, 2019 in Europe and running through the summer with 56 dates spanning across North America, the UK and Europe, and more dates to be announced later.
Mendes’ highly anticipated, self-titled album follows 2016’s double-platinum, “Illuminate,” which produced three top 10 radio hits, and 2014’s “Handwritten,” which included the seven-time platinum, smash number-one single, “Stitches,” both of which debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. “In My Blood” and “Lost In Japan,” the first two tracks off of the upcoming album, released to rave reviews and received critical acclaim from outlets including Rolling Stone, Billboard, the New York Times and Variety. Both tracks have already experienced massive success, soaring to the number one and number two spots on the overall iTunes chart in the U.S., top five on iTunes in 50 countries, and holding the number one and number two spots on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. The newly-released third song off of the album, “Youth,” featuring Khalid, has already reached number one on iTunes in the U.S. Additional yet-to-be-released tracks on the album include, “Fallin’ All In You” (co-written by Ed Sheeran), “Particular Taste” (co-written by Ryan Tedder), and “Like To Be You,” featuring Julia Michaels, who co-wrote the song. The song also features a guitar solo from John Mayer, who produced the track.
