Shawn Mendes Headed Down Under For His Debut Australian Performance

Get done with your stitches as musical prodigy Shawn Mendes will be having two consecutive special performances in Sydney this November, with the first show already sold out, marking his first-ever live performance in Australia.

The rapid rise of Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes can be measured in a string of sold out shows around the world, masses of album and single certifications and streaming numbers. After releasing his debut album Handwritten (out now through Island Records), record sales in Australia and abroad are mind blowing.

Handwritten peaked at #1 in Mendes’ home country, Canada, #1 in America and dominated the ARIA Top 20s in Australia. Smash hit ‘Stitches’ earned him a triple platinum certification in Australia, while second single ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ has surpassed gold status. Shawn is also the youngest artist to reach 1 billion streams, with ‘Stitches’ alone having over 500 million streams worldwide.

"A promising teen's first album" – Billboard

"Shawn is here to stay" – Idolator

"A solid debut. His vocal tone is clear and distinct, and the songs are packed with hooks and heart" – Digital Spy

While his impressive songwriting career has taken him places that most people would be lucky to experience in a lifetime, Mendes’ social media presence is also something to be marvelled. He boasts over 3 million Vine followers, nearly 10 million followers on Instagram and just under 5 million likes on Facebook. Mendes is not only hugely well-known, he is also deeply connected with his legions of fans.

Shawn has built a reputation as a great live performer, something he honed supporting Taylor Swift on select dates during her sold-out The 1989 World Tour. Having just completed a well-received sold-out tour of Europe this past April, Shawn will soon embark on a sold out tour of North America in July.

Finally, it’s time for Shawn Mendes to show Australia what the rest of the world is talking about. Tickets will surely fly out the door for this one, don’t miss out!
