Shawn Mendes Sells Out His First Stadium Show

18th December 2018 | Category: Concerts

Shawn Mendes announced his 2019 Arena Tour earlier this year and according to the recent headlines, it’s going to be epic. The tour hasn’t even started yet but the buzz around it is enormous. The tour starts in March 2019 and you better hurry up before those seats get snagged at your arena.

Shawn’s self-titled tour kicks off on 7 March in Amsterdam and ends with the last show in Toronto in September. In between those dates are dozens of shows in Europe, North America and Australia and Shawn has recently added more dates due to the high demand for tickets.  The show at Toronto’s Rogers Centre is his first time headlining a concert in his hometown and at the same time, his first arena concert and the tickets were sold out in minutes.

“This really was a dream come true to play the Rogers Centre in my hometown,” Mendes said in a statement. “And now to have sold it out is just incredible and something I could have only ever imagined.”  

Mendes already performed on this stage in 1989 tour as an opener for Taylor Swift and now headlines his own show. Louis Messina, from Messina Touring Group that is promoting the tour, described Shawn as a young man who always had a clear vision, dream and determination and has managed to pull it off. Purchase your tickets on time because Mendes Army is always lurking for tickets.

Manager Andrew Gertler added, “Since day one, Shawn has put his all into to his live shows. We set the goal to end this tour with a sold-out stadium and achieved that faster than I think any of us expected. He always had big dreams to play big venues, and to now have risen to stadium level is just the beginning of more to come.”

The tour supports Mendes’ highly-anticipated self-titled album, from which he’s already released several hit singles including “In My Blood”, “Lost in Japan” and the Khalid-featuring “Youth”.

The album was released on May 25 and will mark the superstar’s third LP to date, following 2014’s Handwritten and 2016’s Illuminate, both of which topped the Billboard’s 200. Shawn Mendes album also debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, making Mendes the third youngest artist to collect three number-one albums after Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.
