Finally it's happening! On 25 May 2017 the incredibly popular Shawn Mendes will play his first concert on Belgian soil. His appearance at Paleis 12 is one of the events in his ‘Illuminate World Tour’ (currently 44 dates in the UK, Europe and North America) where the Canadian singer-songwriter will present his second studio album ‘Illuminate’ to the public.
This eighteen-year-old musician's career is developing extremely fast. In 2013, Mendes began to post 'Vines' (six-second video clips) with covers of well-known songs. In only a few months he had millions of followers and just a year later became the third most popular musician on Vine.
His first single ‘Life of the Party’ (2014) was an instant hit. At only fifteen years old, and with his debut single, he was the youngest artist to get into the Billboard Hot 100.
Shawn's first album 'Handwritten' (2015) led the charts and he won several important awards. His single ‘Stitches’ made it into the top ten in the iTunes singles chart and the top 5 on Spotify in more than 85 countries.
He is releasing his second album ‘Illuminate’ on 23 September 2016. Judging by the success of the advance single ‘Treat you better’ (the perfect soundtrack for this summer, and number one on iTunes in 26 countries), we are confident that he will confirm his status as a worldwide star.
Advance ticket sales for the first Shawn Mendes concert in Belgium will begin on 16 September at 10:00 . Don't hesitate! Make sure you have your seat on the [enter you choice here] row!
