The tour has played 50 shows so far, and played to over 600,000 fans.
Shawn Mendes has earned a slot on Billboard’s weekly ranking of top-grossing Hot Tours (see list below) with the final two dates reported from the North American leg of his ongoing world tour. With treks completed in both Europe and North America, the Canadian pop star has topped $32 million in ticket sales from 609,354 sold seats at 50 performances so far.
Mendes is set to resume the tour next month beginning in Brazil with an appearance on the second day of the Rock in Rio Festival on Sept. 16. In November the Illuminate Tour will head Down Under for a five-city sweep through Australia and New Zealand before the tour’s final stand in four Asian markets in December. The Tokyo International Forum is the site for the final concert on Dec. 18.
The five-continent trek in support of his September 2016 release Illuminate began in Scotland at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro, the first of 20 arenas booked during the tour’s opening European leg that continued through early June. Among the highlights of the opening jaunt was the only two-show engagement during the run at London’s O2 Arena. Concerts on June 1 and 2, the final shows during the European leg, produced £1.1 million in sold ticket revenue with almost 32,000 fans in attendance.
