#SPOTTED: SHAWN MENDES IN TORONTO FOR “THE SHAWN MENDES EP” | ON TOUR WITH AUSTIN MAHONE
In what seems like an overnight success, 16-year-old Pop Sensation Shawn Mendes of Pickering, has taken the World by storm. After first surfacing on the Application Vine where he uploaded cover versions of others’ Hits, Fans around the World began taking notice quickly. His Single Life of the Party made him the first Artist ever under the age 25 to debut in the Top 25 of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Currently on-tour with Teen Pop Sensation Austin Mahone, the two along with Supporting Acts like The Vamps, perform tonight at TD Echo Beach. Mendes has spent his time back home wisely, including an Interview on KISS 92.5 yesterday afternoon and today a live Performance/Q&A at Universal Music Canada‘s Headquarters Parking Lot in Scarborough courtesy of Nokia and Microsoft. He also will be meeting Fans at an HMV location downtown for those lucky enough to nab themselves a Wristband.
Hosted by MuchMusic‘s Liz Trinnear, we got to witness Mendes up-close as her performed his two Singles Life of the Party and Show You as his hoards of young female Fans shouted his name amidst a sea of “I Love You”. The self-professed Tim Hortons Fan admits that the Fast Food/Coffee Chain is what he misses most about Canada, now that he is signed to Universal Music/Island Records and based in the U.S. He says also that he wouldn’t mind dating a Fan which drove his Fans crazy. One Admirer perhaps took that a bit too literally, jumping on-stage and hugging him. Although a little started, Security had things in order rather quickly! Hope it was worth it. YOLO!
