Multi-platinum singer songwriter and global sensation Shawn Mendes will bring his acclaimed Illuminate World Tour to Australian arenas this summer! “The 18-year-old takes it to a new level on his second album, coming off as a bona fide rock star. His guitar playing has advanced, his songwriting has matured and his vocals are crisp: This kid’s the real deal.” – Associated Press “Teen idol is discovered. Teen idol hits it big. Teen idol wants to mature. Teen idol pulls it off.” – LA Times The Illuminate World Tour marks Mendes’ much-awaited return to Sydney after his debut shows last November sold out in just minutes, and his first ever performances in Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth. Shawn is touring off the back of his sophomore album Illuminate (Island Records), which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking his second #1 album debut. Current single ‘Mercy’ has been certified Platinum and has soared to Top 10 on pop radio, and its official video has amassed over 115 million views to date. The Illuminate World Tour follows Shawn’s sold-out 2016 Shawn Mendes World Tour, as well as his sold-out Illuminate release show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The singer-songwriter’s first-ever headlining arena tour now includes over 60 dates across four continents, kicking off April 27th in Europe before going on to North and South America, Australia and Asia.
