Island Records star Shawn Mendes prepares to wrap up an amazing year with more than just a bang, as his RIAA platinum worldwide hit “Stitches” edges its way up the BillboardHot 100 to #5-bullet (and goes Top 5 at Pop Radio), his highest chart single to date, and he announces the arrival of the HANDWRITTEN REVISITED album on November 20th. This special re-release of his Handwritten album includes live versions of five tracks from the original album, and four brand new songs.
Last night Shawn also announced his largest NYC show to date, headlining Radio City Music Hall on March 5, 2016. The news was broken by a special pop-up performance on top of the iconic Radio City marquee on 6th Ave. Tickets go on-sale to the public on Saturday, Oct. 31st at 10AM (EST) with pre-order tickets on-sale Tuesday, Oct. 27th at 10AM EST.
Fans can get pre-order ticket access by pre-ordering an exclusive edition of HANDWRITTEN REVISITED on his website www.shawnmendesofficial.com . The exclusive edition will contain the full HANDWRITTEN REVISITED album plus a bonus DVD of the August 16th ShawnAccessLive headline solo concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
It has also been announced that Shawn will join the all-star lineup of iHeart Radio’s Jingle Ball Tour 2015 for 10 selected shows between its opening on December 1st at American Airlines Center in Dallas, and its climax in Tampa at Amalie Arena on December 19th. This Saturday and Halloween, Shawn will play his final two shows as special guest (since May!) on Taylor Swift’s sold-out The 1989 World Tour. (A high point was Ms. Swift singing “Happy Birthday” onstage to Shawn at the Seattle show on August 8th, when he turned 17.) Between dates on The 1989 World Tour, Shawn headlined his own sold out shows, including the Greek Theatre.
Shawn’s debut album Handwritten, featuring his consecutive hit singles “Life of The Party” (RIAA platinum), “Something Big” (RIAA gold), and “Stitches” (RIAA platinum) entered the Soundscan album chart at #1 earlier this year, making him the youngest artist in nearly five years to have a #1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
Picked by Time magazine as one of the most influential teens of 2014, Shawn was also crowned “The real deal” by Teen Vogue. He transitioned from teen viral online sensation to full-fledged industry best-seller when his videos were discovered online by manager Andrew Gertler, which led to Shawn’s introduction and signing to Island Records. He has performed live on The Late Show With David Letterman, ABC’s Good Morning America, Live with Kelly & Michael, NBC’s Today Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! He has also performed on and was interviewed twice on Ellen, and toured over the summer 2014 across the U.S. and Canada on Austin Mahone’s Secret Tour. Shawn was one of MTV’s 2015 Artists To Watch, in addition to being selected to be a part of Vevo’s emerging artists program, LIFT.
