Shawn Mendes just announced his ambitious 2017 Illuminate World Tour, which will be touching down at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth, Georgia next summer. The Canadian singer-songwriter will bring tunes from his clever debut Handwritten and highly-anticipated sophomore album Illuminate to fans at the lakeside arena on July 29, 2017.
Mendes has proven himself a bonafide hitmaker with the recent smashes “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” “Stitches” and Illuminate lead single “Treat You Better.” The 18-year-old has honed his performance skills over the past few years on a series of club and theater tours, as well as a noteworthy stint on Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour, where he won over audiences with his natural magnetism and precocious talent.
While fans were already counting on high-energy performances and personable moments, Mendes is also promising some new theatrics on the upcoming tour. He revealed on Twitter that the tour will be "so different in the best way. New music a new production and all round an entirely new show. I really can't wait."
The Infinite Energy Center is located on an idyllic 90-acre lakefront campus right outside Atlanta. Tickets for Shawn Mendes at the Infinite Energy Center on July 29, 2017 go on sale Saturday, September 24th at 10AM. Grab them right here on AXS.com. Illuminate is due out Sept. 23 via Island Records. Check out additional tickets and tour dates here.
