'MTV Unplugged' with Shawn Mendes will air Sept. 8.
MTV’s stripped-to-the-acoustics live music series MTV Unplugged is coming back this fall, and rock-pop star Shawn Mendes is making the reboot’s first appearance.
According to Variety, Mendes will be the first to appear on the new take of Unplugged with a performance shot at Los Angeles’ Theater at Ace Hotel. The episode will air on Sept. 8.
The show, which originally ran from 1989-2009, is back and will again feature artists reinterpreting a set of their songs. In the past legends like Nirvana and Bruce Springsteen appeared on the music series, as well as more contemporary acts like Miley Cyrus and Adele.
