Nearly three weeks after releasing “10,000 Hours,” Dan + Shay performed their latest single for the first time in front of an audience on Wednesday (Oct. 23). 

The country-pop duo debuted their live take on the romantic love song -- sans collaborator Justin Bieber -- during a tour stop in Perth, Australia. “We performed #10kHours for the first time tonight, and it was absolutely insane,” they captioned an on-stage clip of the performance on Instagram. “Perth, thank you for singing with us, you are LOVELY.”

Dan + Shay are currently serving as the opening act for Shawn Mendes on the Oceania leg of his self-titled arena tour. Following the performance in the Australian capital, they’re set to take the stage in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane before wrapping up their tour support for Mendes in Auckland, New Zealand on Nov. 9.

Check out a clip of the duo leading a massive singalong to “10,000 Hours” below.
