Parking Fee: $10
Doors open at 6:30 PM

With his #1 debut album, #1 single “Stitches”, & now second Pop Radio hit “I Know What You Did Last Summer” extending his momentum at into the new year, Island Records recording artist Shawn Mendes has announced his Shawn Mendes World Tour, opening across Europe with 11 dates in April-May, and then arriving in North America with 26 dates starting on July 15th at Mizner Amphitheater in Boca Raton FL, through the August 21st homecoming date at Air Canada Center in Toronto (Please see full list of dates below).  Preceding these shows, Shawn will play his biggest New York City concert to date, headlining Radio City Music Hall on Saturday, March 5th, which sold-out in under 5 minutes when tickets went on-sale this past fall.

“I Know What You Did Last Summer,” the RIAA gold single duet by Shawn and Camila Cabello of Fifth Harmony, has gone Top 15 at Pop Radio, Top 10 on iTunes, Top 20 on the U.S. Spotify chart, and Top 30 on Spotify’s Global Top 50. The video for “IKWYDLS” is currently past 35 million YouTube views.  Shawn and Camila wrote the song together backstage in his green room at a Taylor Swift 1989 Tour show last summer, and recorded it secretly in New York and Los Angeles.

When Handwritten, now double platinum with a total of 2 million adjusted sales, entered Soundscan at #1 last year, it made Shawn the youngest artist in nearly five years to chart a #1 album on the Billboard 200.  “IKWYDLS” follows up Shawn’s run of consecutive hit singles “Life of The Party” (RIAA platinum), “Something Big” (RIAA platinum), and “Stitches” (RIAA 4x-platinum).  “Stitches” went to #1 on US Pop radio, nearing pole position at the Hot AC formats and has become a certifiable airplay and sales smash around the world.  In addition to topping the official singles chart in the UK this week, the single has hit #1 on iTunes in over 20 markets, and reached Top 5 on the Global Spotify chart.  Shawn also took home the MTV EMA for Best New Artist and the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Breakout Artist.
