Whether you know him as a Vine star, the opening act for Taylor Swift, or for his 2 hit albums, Shawn Mendes is a musical force—and he doesn’t even turn 20 until late 2018. After rising to fame with 6-second clips of himself playing acoustic covers, he landed a record deal in 2014 and released his first single "Life of the Party," a song about the complexity of finding yourself in today’s world. He explores similar themes in his Handwritten written album but has found a more grown-up tone in his latest album Illuminate. Pick up an affordable ticket and watch as Shawn Mendes entertains the crowd with soulful tunes and poppy ballads.
Shawn Mendes grew up in Canada and started learning guitar at 12 via YouTube training videos. By the time he turned 15, he was a full-fledged internet sensation and was one of the most-followed acts on Vine. His first album debuted at the top of the Billboard charts, and he quickly went on to open shows for Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour. He wouldn’t be an opening act for long, setting out on a world tour of his own in 2016. Grab a ticket before they sell out so that you don’t miss your chance to catch Shawn Mendes before he gets even more famous.
