Shawn Mendes may have started out on Vine, but he's come a long way since his video app days! Not only is the singer/songwriter going on tour as the opening act for the world's ultimate pop star Taylor Swift, but he's got a tour of his own planned to boot. The international tour kicks off in February and includes the chance for the first 50 ticket buyers at each show to win a meet and greet with Shawn.
The Canadian singer did his first set of solo tour dates this Fall, in New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto, and all of the dates for these stops sold out within minutes. So how do you make sure you grab a ticket to one of his spring stops one? Well if you live in the US then tickets will go live this Saturday, January 24 at 12 p.m. local time. For the UK/EU dates, tickets will be available starting Friday, January 23 at 9 a.m. local time.
All other info and links to purchase the tickets can be found at Shawn's official website. And as a special bonus, every ticket purchase also includes first access for a pre-order of his forthcoming debut album—and US ticket holders will get an actual pre-ordered physical copy of the record! AKA, buying a ticket to see Shawn on this tour is the quickest way to score a copy of his album—so mark your calendars for those on-sale dates!
We've also highlighted this 16-year-old phenomenon as one of the emerging acts in MTV's Artist To Watch series—we're fully prepared for him to take this year by storm.
