We can’t promise that it will happen when you attend a Shawn Mendes concert but the artist has been known to sing without a microphone… or at least try. Of course, it’s next to impossible to get any venue hosting a Shawn Mendes tour stop quiet enough for the stunt to work. Even if you can get all the smart alecks quiet, there are just too many screaming girls to allow an unplugged Mendes to be heard.
Fortunately for those with Shawn Mendes tickets, the singer almost always uses a microphone. And into a working microphone he’ll belt out his most popular songs: “Something Big,” “Life of the Party,” “Stitches,” and “Strings.” Mendes has a great report with his audience and frequently speaks to them between songs. He can entertain alone, with just his guitar as easily as he can with a full backing band.
Who Is Shawn Mendes?
Shawn Mendes is a singer-songwriter. In 2013, he used Vine to become an internet sensation. In less than a year, Mendes was Vine’s third most popular musician.
His online success caught the attention of both a talent manager and an A&R executive. That attention eventually led to a recording contract.
Mendes released his first single, “Life of the Party,” in June of 2014. His first medium-play, The Shawn Mendes EP, dropped the following month.
The artist’s premiere studio opus, Handwritten, hit streets on April 14, 2015. It debuted atop the Billboard 200 after selling more than a 100,000 copies.
Sadly for Mendes, during its second week of release Handwritten’s sales decreased by 89%.
