Shawn Mendes launched a headlining arena tour in Europe last week, and in exclusive footage, the teenage singer-songwriter gives Rolling Stone a quick look at the show from his point of view. The tour is in support of his 2016 album Illuminate, and he just released a brand new song, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” for the album’s deluxe edition.
In the clip, Mendes is seen performing in clips cut together from the first two shows of his world tour in Glasgow and Manchester. Backstage, he gets ready with his band before debuting his dance-y new pop-rock track “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.” When he sings “Life of the Party” from the piano, the crowds light up the arenas and sing every word back to him.
Mendes will be touring Europe through early June before crossing back to North America for a hefty set of July and August dates. His 61-date tour will span 24 cities and includes runs in South America, Australia and Asia, where the tour will end in Tokyo on December 18th.
