SHAWN MENDES ANNOUNCES 2017 ‘ILLUMINATE WORLD TOUR’ INCLUDING FIRST-EVER GLASGOW DATE AT THE SSE HYDRO.
Today, in support of his second album Illuminate (out September 23rd on Virgin EMI UK Records), multi-platinum singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes announces his first-ever headlining arena world tour for 2017. The huge 44-date tour will kick off in the UK at The SSE Hydro on 27 April 2017.
Shawn Mendes’ upcoming album Illuminate, out on 23 September features hit lead single “Treat You Better” which was an instant hit, sky-rocketing to the no.1 spot in 36 countries and currently riding high in the UK Top 10. This marked Shawn’s second Top 10 hit following the release of “Stitches” which held the coveted no.1 spot on the UK Official Charts for two weeks. Mendes has since released three additional tracks from Illuminate including “Mercy”, “Ruin” and “Three Empty Words”, available now upon pre-ordering the album.
Shawn has recently come off his sold-out Shawn Mendes World Tour following the success of debut album Handwritten. This Friday 10 September, Shawn will headline New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden with The Illuminate Live Concert & Album Event, playing new music from his highly anticipated forthcoming album for the first time.
Shawn Mendes said, “I’m so excited for the Illuminate World Tour and to head to the UK for the shows there. The British fans have been so supportive and this will be my first time headlining in Scotland and Manchester, as well as The O2 in London. I can’t wait!”
At just 18 years old, his powerful sound and raw songwriting has lead him to be named as Forbes “30 Under 30” in 2016, The People’s Choice Awards “Favourite New Artist” 2016 and one of Time Magazine’s “Most Influential Teens” of 2014 and 2015.
