Hometown Show To Cap Shawn Mendes' NA Arena Tour

By Kerry Doole

A hometown headline show at Rogers Centre in Toronto on Sept. 6 will cap off Canadian pop singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes' 2019 North American tour, part of a global arena trek. The Rogers Centre show will be the singer's biggest to date.


In a label press release, he explains that “Playing Rogers Centre is truly a dream come true for me. Having grown up going to games, playing as an opener just a few years ago, and now being able to headline a show here, is just surreal. I’m so grateful for the fans that have supported me from the beginning and have made this possible.”
