Shawn Mendes: meteoric rise of another Canadian
Shawn Peter Raul Mendes grew up in Pickering, a suburb of Toronto, and had an interest in music from a young age. As a teenager, he posted pop cover versions on the internet, on platforms such as Twitter, YouTube and Vine; with his interpretation of the Adele song "Hometown Glory" going on to become a viral internet hit in America and helping Mendes gather millions of new followers.
It was around this time that artist manager Andrew Gertler became aware of the upcoming star, and Mendes was quickly signed to Island Records. At the age of 16, he released debut album Handwritten, whose single "Stitches" reached number one in the UK, while previously released lead single "Life of the Party" – which appeared when he was just 15 – earned Mendes the title of youngest artist ever to make it into the Top 25 single charts in America.
The success of "Stitches", in particular, ensured Shawn Mendes became known across Europe, as the song reached top tens across the continent. As a result of his enhanced standing, he opened for pop icon Taylor Swift in 2015 during the North American leg of her 1989 world tour and, in January 2016, was awarded the People's Choice Award for Favorite Breakout Artist. In September of the same year Mendes released his second album Illuminate, which reached the top three worldwide and helped him win the MTV EMA Award for Best Male Artist.
After another world tour in 2017, Mendes announced his self-titled third album (released May 2018), along with a European tour in 2019, during which he visits the UK for seven live shows. Book your place in the crowd when you buy Shawn Mendes tickets at StubHub.
