Shawn Mendes’ upcoming album Illuminate, out on23 September features hit lead single “Treat You Better” which was an instant hit, sky–rocketing to the no.1 spot in 36 countries.  This marked Shawn’s second Top 10 hit following the release of “Stitches”. Mendes has since released three additional tracks from Illuminate including “Mercy”, “Ruin” and “Three Empty Words”, available now upon pre-ordering the album.

Shawn has recently come off his sold–out Shawn Mendes World Tour following the success of debut album Handwritten. This Friday 10 September, Shawn will headline New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden with The Illuminate Live Concert & Album Event, playing new music from his highly anticipated forthcoming album for the first time. 

Shawn Mendes said, “I’m so excited for the Illuminate World Tour and to head to Europe for the shows. The fans there have been so supportive and this will be my first time headlining in Ireland. I can’t wait!”

At just 18 years old, his powerful sound and raw songwriting has lead him to be named as Forbes “30 Under 30” in 2016, The People’s Choice Awards “Favourite New Artist” 2016 and one of Time Magazine’s “Most Influential Teens” of 2014 and 2015.
