Shawn Mendes Tour
Over the last few months, Shawn Mendes’ Vine posts have made him an international celebrity. Now, just over a year after he posted his first six-second video (a cover of fellow Canadian Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me”), Mendes has signed a record deal and is preparing to set off on his first headlining concert dates in Nov. 2014.
Mendes, who just turned 16 on Aug. 8, is one of a recent crop of young musicians that have found a devoted audience through the power of social media. The official Shawn Mendes Twitter account boasts more than 1.8 million followers, while the Shawn Mendes Vine page--where he first found fame--features more than 3 million fans.
In May, Mendes signed his first major record deal with Island Records, which was closely followed by the July release of The Shawn Mendes EP. The EP sailed to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Albums chart within an hour of its release. Its first single, “Life of the Party,” was released a month earlier and traveled all the way to No. 24 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Mendes the youngest music act to debut in the top quarter of the mainstream singles chart with his first song.
This summer, Mendes went on tour with MTV’s 2013 Artist to Watch, Austin Mahone, but the Toronto native will be heading out on his own in the fall for his first official headlining shows. As of Sept. 30, the first three dates have been posted to the Shawn Mendes Vine account, including performances on both coasts in the U.S., as well as in his hometown in Ontario.
Mendes is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young stars in the today’s industry, but these three upcoming shows will give fans the opportunity to see him perform live in an intimate setting. Get your Shawn Mendes tickets from Vivid Seats and be one of the lucky few to witness the first big step in this budding star’s career.
