This Tour Demonstrates Shawn Mendes Growth
In an interview with Billboard Magazine, concert promoter Louis Messina of Messina Touring Group described his amazement at Mendes growth.
He recalled how Mendes went from opening for Taylor Swifts 1989 tour to now headlining his own concert. Messina said of Mendes that he always had the vision, dream, and determination and it has worked.
Messina also went on to say that this would be the first of many stadium tours in the near future for Shawn.
The reviews of Shawn Mendes live shows have been positive, as well. In a fall review by the Austin Chronicle, writer Alejandra Ramirez detailed how Mendes opened the Austin, Texas show asserting his arena-seasoned dominance and alluded to his versatility by describing the ease at which he performed different songs with varying styles.
