LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Multi-platinum and chart-topping singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes announced that he’s planning to hit the road next year for a global arena tour.
“Shawn Mendes: The Tour” kicks off on March 7, 2019, in at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, and will carry through the summer with dates scheduled in North America, the UK, and Europe, with additional dates to be announced. The tour will be Mendes’ third major run and follows on the heels of a successful arena tour in 2017.
The tour will be in support of his forthcoming self-titled third album, which is due on May 25th via Island Records. While you’ll have to wait a couple more weeks for the full album, “In My Blood” and “Lost In Japan,” the first tracks have already been released and peaked at #1 and #2 on the iTunes chart in the U.S. and top 5 in 50 countries.
The newly released third song off of the album, “Youth” featuring Khalid 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.
The album follows 2016’s double platinum Illuminate which spawned 3 Top 10 radio hits, and 2014’s Handwritten which included the 7x platinum single “Stitches,” both of which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
