Supporting the release of his self-titled third album, multi-platinum and chart-topping singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes will hit the road in 2019 on a global arena tour. “Shawn Mendes: The Tour” will mark his third global headline tour, following his sold out 2017 arena trek, and will take in 56 dates spanning across North America, the UK and Europe, and more dates to be announced later. Kicking off on March 7, 2019 in Amsterdam, the European leg of the tour will include UK shows in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and two O2 Arena shows in London.
Shawn’s highly anticipated, self-titled third album is out on May 25th via Virgin EMI Records. The album follows 2016’s Illuminate and 2014’s Handwritten, both certified Gold in the UK with 4 Platinum singles (“Stitches”, “Mercy”, “Treat You Better” and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”) and 3 Top 10 smash hits in the UK Official Charts. “In My Blood” and “Lost In Japan”, the first two tracks off of the upcoming album, were released to rave reviews and received critical acclaim from outlets including Rolling Stone, Billboard, the New York Times and The Guardian. Both tracks have already experienced massive success, soaring to the #1 and #2 spots on the overall iTunes chart in the U.S, Top 5 on iTunes in 50 countries, and holding the #1 and #2 spots on Spotify’s “New Music Friday” playlist. The newly released third song off of the album, “Youth” featuring Khalid, described as "an anthem for an entire generation" by MTV UK and "nothing short of incredible" by the Official Charts Company, has already reached #1 on iTunes in the US. 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.
