Prior to this, Mendes is scheduled to perform at the 8th annual 'We Can Survive' breast cancer awareness fundraiser bill with Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Doja Cat, and the Kid Laroi at the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 22 of this year.

The Wonder: World Tour will be the 23-year-old Canadian singer’s fourth.

So far the ‘Wonder’ expedition includes more than 50 concerts; however, additional dates, including Mexican stops, are still being added.

Wonder is Mendes’ fourth album for Island Records, released in Dec. of 2020, preceded by a Netflix doc exploring the singer’s off-stage life. The album debuted in Canada and the US at No. 1 and included Monster–the hit collaboration co-written with Canadians’ Justin Bieber, Daniel Caesar producer Frank Dukes, and Mustafa the Poet (born Mustafa Ahmed).

In Aug. 2021, Mendes released Summer of Love, a song co-written with Puerto Rican record producer Tainy (Marco Masis). These two first performed it a month later on the MTV Video Awards.

André 3000 Says OutKast Partner Big Boi Had the Best Reaction to Bars-Free Flute Album ‘New Blue Sun’

Three Stacks also revealed how Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean reacted to his instrumental odyssey.

André 3000 knew he was taking a big swing when he released his rap-free, flute-forward album New Blue Sun earlier this year. So naturally he wanted to get some feedback from his longtime former partner in rhyme in OutKast, Big Boi.

In a new cover story for High Snobiety, Three Stacks reveals that he played “some” of the instrumental jazz album for Big, whose reaction was just about perfect. “He was smiling… He was like, ‘Man…,'” André said of Big Boi’s response to the album with mouthful song titles such as the opening track, “I Swear, I Really Wanted To Make A ‘Rap’ Album But This Is Literally The Way The Wind Blew Me This Time.”
